Nanga Parbat, locally known as Diamer, is the ninth highest mountain in the world at 8,126 meters – 26,660 feet, above sea level.  Located in the Diamer District of Pakistan’s Gilgit Baltistan region, Nanga Parbat is the western anchor of the Himalayas.  Its steep south wall rises nearly 15,000 feet above the valley immediately below, and the north side drops about 23,000 feet to the Indis river.  How beautiful is this spot . The British Alpine climber Al Mummery led the first attempt to ascend the glacier- and snow-covered mountain in 1895, but he died in the attempt. I was in Gilget many years ago but never attempted to climb the mountain.  My friend Russell Gordon attempted to climb it and got to the final ridge before turning back and another friend went base camp.
