Amazing Pakistan – One

Nanga Parbat, Pakistan

Nanga Parbat is often referred to as the highest mountain face in the world: the Rupal Face rises 4,600 m [15,000 ft] above its base. To the north, the complex, somewhat more gently sloped Rakhiot Flank rises 7,000 m [23,000 ft] from the Indus River valley to the summit in just 27 km [16.8 miles], one of the 10 greatest elevation gains in so short a distance on Earth.

Nanga Parbat has never been climbed in winter!

    That is absolutely beautiful: mystical and sublime; it would be a great place to meditate, to journey into the Inner landscapes. Wow! Ali

  2. Yes Ali. The tranquility of such places in Pakistan is unique and impressive. There are many places in the mountains you can go to where it’s SO quiet that you can literally hear the blood flowing through your veins. The air is so pure that it actually hurts your lungs before you get used to the oxygen-rich environment. And I say all of this with personal experience!
