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
Elite Exped’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.
