Nanga Parbat (8125 m) is the western most bastions of the Himalayas. One has to travel completely around the globe to come back to the Himalayas to see such high peaks on our planet. The word 'Nanga' means naked and 'Parbat' is mountain. Nanga Parbat is also a killer mountain. Many climbers died on it before it was summited by the great Hermann Buhl without supplemental oxygen in 1953. His epic climb is still unsurpassed.
The journey traditionally called: 'Around Nanga Parbat' actually goes halfway around the mountain. It offers us stupendous sights of this Himalayan giant. The crossing of Mazeno Pass (5,399 m.) is a technical endeavor where ropes are fixed on steep pitches. The trip is for anyone who wants to get close to this legendary mountain and feel its presence deep down in one's soul! This is a challenging trek in Pakistan's Himalaya.
