The Rakaposhi mountain is a 7,788 m high mountain in the Karakoram mountain range located in the Nagar Valley of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. The name Rakaposhi, meaning "snow-covered" came from one the fact that you can see its exceptional rise of its snow-covered peaks all the way from the Karakoram Highway route that goes through Nagar Valley.
