Chogho Lisa : is the 36 highest peaks among 7000 in the region of Karakoram.It lies near the Baltoro Glacier in the Concordia region which is home to some of the highest peaks of the world. Its four ridges, of which three have been been climbed, culminate in the form of two summits. The peak is highly exposed to winds with deep snow. Chogolisa has several peaks, the highest on the south face (Chogolisa I) rises to 7,665 meters (25,148 ft). The second highest at 7,654 meters on the NE side (Chogolisa II) is the one named Bride Peak by Martin Conway in 1892.

In 1909, a party led by Duke of the Abruzzi reached 7,498 m (24,600 ft) from a base camp located on the northern side and a high camp on the Chogolisa saddle at 6,335m. Bad weather stopped the party from ascending further, but their climb established a world altitude record.
Here is tragedy as the Legend of (Nanga Parbat) Harman Bhul (Austria) has slipped due to descending from summit.It was first made success by Austrian on August 2, 1975 including Fred Press and Gustav Ammerer led by Eduard Koblmuller. At that moment Koblmuller almost suffered the same fate as Buhl, as he also fell through a cornice on the ascent; luckily, he was roped and team members were able to pull him to safety. Chogolisa is one of the impressive and elegant peaks in the Karakoram.
