Nanga Parbat (literally means Naked Mountain in Hindi/Urdu) is the ninth highest mountain in the world with a summit elevation of 8,126 m. (26,660 ft.) above sea level. Technically it is the second hardest 8,000-meter peak in Pakistan after K2.  It lies in the Gilgit-Baltistan province of Pakistan. The north face is very threatening due to unstable glaciers, frequent storms and avalanches. In contrast to the south face’s steep rock and ice the snowy, north face is guarded by a broad barrier of seracs that extend the width of the mountain.

Nanga Parbat is the most easily accessible of all 8000m mountains with base camps approachable in as little as two days from Gilgit. In search of adventure and thrill the first German expedition team led by Herman Buhl successfully reached the summit in 1953 via the Rakhiot Glacier and East Ridge. But this success was achieved only after having lost eleven climbers and fifteen porters during the ascent. Many other climbers have subsequently been killed on this mountain. This is why this mountain was nicknamed the “Killer Mountain.” Reinhold Messner, a living legend in mountaineering from Italy, says that “Nanga Parbat has become known in the world as the highest rock and ice wall mountain!”.


An unexpected situation can always occur, especially this part of the region. So please make sure your Travel Insurance includes right level of Cancellation Cover for you.
