Mount Nanga Parbat is the best peak climbing destination for every enthusiastic climber. The peak standing at the place of the 9th highest peak in the world is truly an awesome spectacle. The peak lies to the western Himalayas, south of the Indus River in the Diamer District of Gilgit Baltistan in Pakistan. Nanga Parbat, also called Diamer scales the elevation of 8126 meters/ 26660 feet. The south sides of the steep mountain rise nearly 15000 feet/ 4600 meters and drops to the north sides at the elevation of 7000 meters/ 23000 feet. Nanga Parbat means Naked Mountains. This Parbat has remarkable vertical relief over local terrain in all directions.
The Nanga Parbat has three faces. It splits into the Diamer to the west, to the south, also considered as the highest mountain face in the world lies a Rupal Face that rises 4600 meters/ 15,090 ft., and to the north face gently sloped Rakhiot rising 7000 meters /23000 ft. The key notches for Nanga Parbat are Zoji La in Kashmir that links to greater peaks in the remaining Himalaya-Karakoram range. The top of the expedition also offer to have a close rage outlooks of nearby by peak like Rakhiot Peak 7070 meters/ 23200 ft., Chongra Peak 6830 meters/ 22410 ft., Mazeno Peak 7,120 meters / 23,360 ft., Rupal Peak 5642 meters/ 18510 ft., Laila Peak 5971 meters/ 19590 ft., and Shaigiri Peak 5584 meters/ 18320 ft. The Nanga Parbat has got its infamous name “the Killer mountain” when the seven climbers from Germans and nine Sherpa porters died by an overrun of an avalanche at Camp IV on June 14, 1937, AD. The first successful ascent to Nanga Parbat was made by Austrian Climber Hermann Buhl in 1953 July 3 via the Rakhiot Flank (East Ridge). Willy Merkl, Karl Herrilgkoffer from Munich and Peter Aschenbrenner from Kufstein directed the expedition. Nowadays, most of the expedition to the Nanga Parbat is attempted via the Westerly Diamir Face and is considered as the easiest and safest, the normal route. The Nanga Parbat Base camp lies at the height of 3900 meters
