This is the north face of Nanga Parbat (8125m), the most westerly mountain in the Great Himalayan range, 8th highest in the world, and perhaps the most dangerous. The south face, much more difficult to access, is a sheer 4500m drop, the largest of its kind on earth. This side is accessible by the trek to Fairy Meadows, from where you can proceed to base camp. The trek begins from Raikot bridge, a 3-hour drive south of Gilgit on the Karakorum Highway.
