I don't think any pictures can really do justice to just how massive this mountain is. Standing at 8,126 meters (26,660 feet) above sea level, it is the ninth tallest in the world, and the second tallest in Pakistan just behind K2. More people have died trying to summit Nanga Parbat than have actually summited this mountain. We were cool with admiring it from afar, spending two nights at this campsite after a death-defying Jeep ride. If Pakistan isn't on your travel list, it definitely should be. This was just one of the many epic views I got to see during my two weeks of adventuring in Northern Pakistan.


This looks really beautiful!


it must be really impressive! Thanks for sharing.
