Nanga Parbat is one of the most iconic mountains in the world. It is 8,126 – meter peak located in Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region, near the border with China. Nanga Parbat is the world’s ninth-highest mountain, and it’s not just any old peak—it’s an active volcano that has erupted at least four times in the last half-century. Every effort to climb Nanga Parbat has been met with controversy, but this year an expedition made waves with its audacious plans to reach the summit. Nanga Parbat is home to some of the most challenging climbs in the world, including a variety of ice climbs, mixed climbs, and rock climbs unique to the mountain itself. The mountain’s summit has been attempted by climbers from all over the globe.
The men behind this expedition have raised $30,000 on a popular website to fund their climb, which will take place from July 2nd. Their goal is to make it all the way to the top of Nanga Parbat by July 29th, which would make them only two days behind those who had previously beaten them. However, if things go well for them, they could be on top of Nanga Parbat as soon possible.
Nanga Parbat climbing routes are notoriously dangerous—although there have been less fatalities on record, there have been close calls throughout history. The men behind this expedition have already faced several challenges before they even left home: first they had to find a western guide willing to go along with them; second, they had to raise money for the trip.
The Nanga Parbat climbing difficulty has been a disputed topic among mountaineers since its first ascent by George Mallory, who was accompanied by Sandy Irvine, Noel Odell and Eric Shipton. However, some sources claim that their climb was not successful due to bad weather conditions and lack of equipment.
