Shishpare stands as one of the prominent peaks in the Batura Muztagh, the westernmost subrange of the Karakoram Range. Positioned to the east of the Batura Wall, the highest section of the Batura Muztagh, Shishpare overlooks the western bank of the Hunza River, which winds its way around the southwest, west, and northwest sides of the range. The Hunza Valley, located within the Gilgit District of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, lies adjacent to this majestic peak.

Climbing endeavors in the Batura Muztagh commenced later compared to other regions of the Karakoram. Shishpare witnessed its first successful ascent in 1974, achieved by the “Polish-German Academic Expedition” led by Janusz Kurczab. The ascent, spanning 35 days, marked a significant milestone in mountaineering history. Tragically, during preparations for a subsequent attempt on the summit, one member of the expedition, Heinz Borchers, lost his life in an avalanche.
