During April, I'll be posting in the A-Z Blogging Challenge
My theme is Hunzas.
Today is U..... for Ultar
The Karakoram Mountain range in Pakistan boasts of 8.000 peaks. If you travel the Karakoram Highway through Hunza , you will pass by Ultar Peak, a sub-range.
While not being one of the highest peaks of the Karakoram, Ulta Sar is immediately noticed because of it's dramatic rise above the surrounding terrain at 17,388 ft.
Ultar Sar is distinguished as being unclimbed. During the 80's and 90's over 15 expeditions made unsuccessful attempts to conquer Ultar but as yet, the majestic mountain remains unchallenged.
Ultar sends out severe signals that says she wants to be left alone. A few expeditions made the climb to the first summit, but falling rock, bits of glacier, horrendous snow storms with high winds are no match for even the most determined climber. So she stands in solitude, ever waiting for that victorious challenge.
