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.

Historical accounts suggest that mount Nanga Parbat popped up as a result of collision between the Indian and the Eurasian tectonic plates.

Nanga Parbat has three massive faces:

  1. The Rakhiot Face, overlooking the gray cliffs and highlands on the north and south
  2. The Diamer Face, which is quite rock-strewn in the start but transforms into ice fields as you approach the killer mountain
  3. 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.

Climb Nanga Parbat with Karakorum Expeditions

Stringing like a trinket through the curvature of the Himalaya, there is no harsher game in the world than attempting to climb the Naked Mountain. The cold is extreme and terribly penetrating, so much so that it would chill you down to your bone. Temperature falls as low as -50 degree Celsius, and the gusts burnish the ice into goblet, cutting down any feeble part of your outfit and shelter.

And the odds are what the real mountaineers love the most. They give us the opportunity for extreme adventure. They allow us to go to the extreme and see if our passion outweighs the hardships. Karakorum Expeditions can make your extreme adventure possible for you. We have highly trained and experienced climbing instructors and high altitude porters who will try their best to make things possible for you.
