Nanga Parbat: The killer mountain
Put your passion to the test in the Naked Mountain
Nanga Parbat (the Naked Mountain) boasts a long history of unsuccessful climbing attempts and disasters; hence it came to be known as the killer mountain. It rises high at 8,126 meters above sea level out of the Himalayas in Diamer District of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan.
Nanga Parbat has three massive faces:
- The Rakhiot Face, overlooking the gray cliffs and highlands on the north and south
- The Diamer Face, which is quite rock-strewn in the start but transforms into ice fields as you approach the killer mountain
- The Rupal face, which boasts the highest cliff in the world
Nanga Parbat is one of the most desired prizes for mountaineers. Climbing the killer instinct mountain in the icy gravities of Himalayan twilight seems like madness, but the world’s best mountaineers can’t just sleep without putting their passion to the test. Just like mount K2, Nanga Parbat is the ultimate challenge for the world’s veteran mountaineers.
