Nanga Parbat, which means "naked mountain" in Urdu, is the 2nd highest mountain and world's ninth highest mountain. It is also called Diamir, the "Dwelling Place of the Fairies".  From the west one can see the whole face of Nanga Parbat with rock, ice and snow, rising from the bleak Indus to the summit. One of the most awe-inspiring sights even in the Himalays. The mountain is not only hard to reach but presents formidable difficulties to the climber, with unstable glaciers and ice terraces constantly sloughing off vast avalanches, the terrain is much worse than that of Everest, the approach route longer, and many more intermediate camps are needed. Nanga Parbat was first reconnoitered by the great Victorian climber A.F. Mummery, who set out for the Himalayas in 1895 with the intention of climbing one of the world’s highest peaks.

In 1953, Nanga Parbat, was again subject to the German's interest and Hermann Buhl became the first submitter of Nanga Parbat on July 3, 1953. So Mummery’s project of attempting the summit single handed was in fact realized more than 50 years later, after seven attempts and 31 deaths. Nanga Parbat is indeed what Kenneth Mason described; It is the cruelest and most vengeful of mountains and forgives no errors of judgment. 
Nanga Parbat has a height of 8126 meters/26,660 ft. It has three vast faces. The Raikot face is dominated by the north and south silver crags and silver plateau. The Diamir face is rocky in the beginning. It converts itself into ice fields around Nanga Parbat peak. The Rupal face is the highest mountain face in the world: it rises an incredible 4,600m above its base.
