Karka (Urdu: کارکا‎) is a summit in the Hindu Raj range in Northern Pakistan and has a peak elevation of 6,222 m (20,413 ft). Multiple Italian expeditions have been exploring the area from a geographic and ethnographic point of view.[1] A group of climbers from Vicenza successfully climbed Karka for the first time in August 2007 during the expedition "La Gata - Karka 2007". In the course of the same expedition 4 other first ascents were performed in the Chiantar Glacier basin, while the trekking group set the route of what local guides already name "Trekking of the Italians".
