Nanga Parbat, Sanskrit for ‘’Naked Mountain’’ is so named because some of its slopes are so steep that they are bereft of vegetation and snow. Nanga Parbat is not a single peak but consist of 20m long series of peaks and ridges culminating in an ice crest of 8125m. Nanga Parbat is the second highest mountain of Pakistan and ninth highest in the world. It is not part of Karakoram as it is the western extremity of the mighty Himalaya. It was first climbed in 1953 by a joint Austrian-German Expedition.
