Trek around Nanga Parbat

Trek around Nanga Parbat

This huge mountain is not a single peak but a series of ridges culminating in an ice crest 8,125 meters high. This ninth-highest mountain in the world is the second highest in Pakistan after K2. The name Nanga Parbat means ‘naked mountain’, so called because some of its slopes are so steep that they are bare of snow or vegetation.

This huge mountain is not a single peak but a series of ridges culminating in an ice crest 8,125 meters high. This ninth-highest mountain in the world is the second highest in Pakistan after K2. The name Nanga Parbat means ‘naked mountain’, so called because some of its slopes are so steep that they are bare of snow or vegetation. Our tour starts on a jeep road that follows the fertile, wooded Khirirn Valley for 40 kilometers to the army post at Chilim and continues across the Deosai Plateau to Skardu. The best-known treks from Astor lead west and southwest, to the east and south sides of Nanga Parbat. We’ll trek all the way round Nanga Parbat at about 3,500 meters, with passes rising to 5,377 meters. Our last camping day is at Fairy Meadow, which defines its meaning.
