TRIP INFORMATION

Nanga Parbat Expedition

The world’s 9th tallest mountain, Nanga Parbat stands tall at a height of 8,126m (8.126km). It lies in the northern part of Pakistan and is famous as ‘Diamer’ among the Pakistani people which translates into ‘huge mountain in Tibetan.

The name ‘Nanga Parbat’ was modified ‘Nanga parbata’ which means ‘the naked mountain’ in the Sanskrit language. As the name suggests, the mountain has very steep sides due to which not much of the snow can accumulate here and cover it entirely. Hence, the mountain remains naked without much of the snow coverings.

The climb to Nanga Parbat gives a chance to experience the unbelievable beauty of nature as well as the massive sized mountains. Nanga Parbat has the Rupal face at the west which is the world’s highest mountain face.

Besides this, the climbers can also experience the beauty of the Fairy Meadows. Fairy Meadows are the beautiful grasslands that can be found on the way to Nanga Parbat.

A Japanese photographer named these grasslands the Fairy Meadow after being mesmerized by its beauty. These areas also have wide pine forests which are home to many amazing plants and animals.

 

When is Nanga Parbat usually climbed?

The climb to Nanga Parbat expedition is much easier during summer and autumn when the weather is comparatively warm as well as the chances of heavy snowfall and avalanches are less.

Winter expeditions are rarely done as the temperature is harsher than other times. Also, there will be heavy snowfalls and chances of avalanches high during winter. Only a few attempts have been successful during winter.

 

How hard is it to climb Nanga Parbat?

 

Climbing Nanga Parbat is harder than climbing other mountains. There are chances of altitude sickness and the weather is unpredictable like that of other mountains.

Also, the ridges leading to Nanga Parbat are narrow and there are high chances of avalanches too. Besides these, to climb Nanga Parbat, one has to face the Rupal Face, which is the western side of the mountain.

The Rupal Face stands as a single mass of rocks and ice and is hard to climb. So, even though the climb is refreshing and adventurous, this climbing mountain remains as difficult as climbing Mt.K2 and needs experienced guidance.

 

How long does it take to climb Nanga Parbat?

 

Climbing Nanga Parbat might be an adventurous, thrilling and self-refreshing activity yet its massive height makes it dangerous too so making a rush might not be the best thing to do considering your safety.

 

The overall adventure of climbing Nanga Parbat takes around 50 days. During these 50 days, about a month is spent in the mountains.
