The trek for Nanga Parbat starts from the Raikot
Bridge, about 45 miles south of Gilgit. The journey will commence early
morning from Rawalpindi by bus via Karakoram Highway. We will reach the
bridge by the evening. A two-day walk from there will enable us to reach
Toughest day of the trek - this day requires a steep
climb of over 3,000 feet with added disadvantages of no shade or water.
The terrain is not difficult or dangerous but tiring and strenuous.
Continuing the journey to Fairy Meadows, the walk is
fairly tiring, but now the surroundings offer a great deal of pleasure.
True to its name, fairy meadows hold lush green meadows, gushing crystal
clear spring water and towering pine trees which generously provide cool
shade. Above all, the majestic Nanga Parbat - "the naked mountain"
stands tall and proud for you to behold. This sight is enough to drive
away the tiredness of many a weary trekker.
The trek to the Behal Camp is an easy and pleasant
three mile walk. The rest of the day is spent relaxing.
We take a one day trip to the base of Nanga Parbat
and return to Behal Camp.
