Nanga Parbat literally means “the naked mountain”. It is the 2nd highest peak in Pakistan and 9th highest in world ranking. Located in the western Himalayan range, Nanga Parbat is also known as Diamer “The Capital of Fairies”. This exciting trek takes you through the enchanting green meadows and valleys around Nanga Parbat, trekking through the lush green alpine meadows and scenic mountain villages, exploring the three base camps of this hypnotic and spell binding natural giant. The South face is approached from Rupal, the Diamer face from the west, and North face from Fairy Meadows. Nanga Parbat is the only mountain above 8000 meters in the world where one can actually walk circles around it!

The south face of the Nanga Parbat is one of the highest precipices in the world. It is a rock face rising 4500 meters; a perpetual vertical wall, it also offers one of the most hazardous routes to the top of the peak.

We drive up to the Astore Gorge through enchanting Himalayan landscape to the small mountain village of Rupal lying at the foot of the south side of Nanga Parbat. Here we begin the first leg of the trek crossing the Chunghphere and Bazin glaciers before reaching the lush green meadows of the traditional Base camp of this gigantic entity. Crossing the Mazeno pass at 5370 meters, the descend begins down to the Loiba glacier of the Diamer face, which offers the easiest climbing route. 

Trek up to the enchanting green pastures of Fairy Meadows, where we see one of the biggest mountain faces that offers the unforgettable view of the North Face of Nanga Parbat. This is followed by a hike through the thick high altitude pine and birch forest on the lush green alpine meadows to visit the base camp. Nanga Parbat was first climbed by the Herman Bhul in 1953 by a joint Austrian German expedition.
