The Sanskrit meaning of Nanga Parbat is “Naked Mountain “. The altitude of Nanga Parbat is 8125 m which is the 9th highest mountain in the world and the 2nd highest in Pakistan after K2.Nanga Parbat has a huge vertical relief over local terrain in all directions. 

    To the south of Nanga Parbat “Rupal Face “ rises 4,600 m (15,090 ft) above its base. To the north, the sloped Rakhiot Flank rises 7,000 m (23,000 ft) from the Indus River valley to the summit in just 25 km (16 mi). Nanga Parbat is the second most prominent peak of the Himalayas, after Mount Everest. The key col for Nanga Parbat is Zoji La in Kashmir, which connects it to higher peaks in the remaining Himalaya-Karakoram range. On the Tibetan Plateau, Nanga Parbat is the westernmost peak of the Himalayas whereas Namcha Barwa marks the east end.

    The mountain was first climbed by Hermann Buhl on July 3, 1953, via the Upper North ride and Reinhold Messner's first ascent of Rupal face in 1970 via the south East spur, Messner’s solo climb of the Diamer face in 1978. These ascents inspire the climbers to aspire to the Himalayas. Most attempts nowadays are via the Westerly Diamir face which is generally considered to be the easiest and safest with the Kinshofer Route the normal route.
