Nanga Parbat presents a foreboding challenge facing anyone attempting to climb all 14 of the 8,000ers. Its Urdu name translates as “the naked mountain,” so-called because snow doesn’t cling to its steep sides, and locals in Pakistan’s Diamer district call it Deo Mir, meaning “huge mountain”. But the nickname it’s earned in Western mountaineering circles, “the killer mountain,” is the most ominous of all. Nowhere is expert guidance, or proper preparation more key. Which is where we come in.

Climb the Naked Moutain :

Royal Nepal Group’s leaders have unparalleled experience in the world’s most extreme mountain environments. Nims and Mingma David have climbed all of the world’s 8,000m peaks in record time. Nims has a 100 percent success rate on 8,000ers, and perhaps more importantly, the pair have a 100 percent safety record - when working together, not a single member of any of their teams has lost so much as a fingertip to frostbite.

This record offers the kind of reassurance you need when tackling a peak as tricky and technical as Nanga Parbat. If you want the best of the best leading you, you could not be in safer hands.

We leave 48 days for the expedition, which is time enough to enjoy the spectacular drive in from Islamabad and celebrate with at the Alpine Club of Pakistan on your return to the city. It also gives more than enough time to acclimatise, and a long climbing window.

As in Nepal, we oversee every aspect of the expedition when operating in Pakistan - from carrying in food, to fixing ropes, we control the controllable, making sure that nothing is left to chance. Nanga Parbat’s fearsome reputation only makes it all the more important to prepare for all eventualities, and make sure that the highest standards of safety are maintained.

Royal Nepal Group’s highly experienced guiding team are not just record-breaking mountaineers - they also have extensive training in high altitude rescues. We have evacuation plans and helicopters in place for emergencies. Our guaranteed 1:1 guide to client ratio, with four Sherpas constantly on standby if needed, ensures that we can respond rapidly in rescue situations.

Most importantly, our preparation is second to none, which ensures that you have the best possible chance of achieving your goal, and summiting this difficult peak safely. From the moment you sign up to our Nanga Parbat expedition, to the summit, and back, we’ll be with you, step by step.
