Nanga Parbat Diamir Base Camp Trek

​The other face of Nanga Parbat…
Contrary to the much visited Fairy Meadows and Raikot face of Nanga Parbat, Diamir aka Diamoro (in local dialect) is much rugged, long and a raw trek. It takes a painstaking three days of a continuous trek to reach the south-western face of the mountain from where one can directly see the main summit standing at an altitude of 8,125m.
Diamir Base Camp is particularly notable for its rich history of climbing expeditions spanning for more than 100 years. From the early days of imperial expeditions to the mainstream explorers, all the way to the renegade Hippy climbing bums, Daimir Face has been the center of attraction thereby boasting of a unique climbing history unlike any other face of the mountain.
Experience eight days in completely unspoiled wilderness while enjoying the breathtaking views all around the base camp.
Explorers will get a chance to learn about Glaciology, oroganic (Mountain building) movements, climbing history of Nanga Parbat, wildlife, Geology of th
e area through our seasoned explorers and guides.
