Nanga Parbat (26,660 feet) is usually climbed from 3 base camps: Raikot (aka Fairy Meadows), Diamir and Rupal. Fairy Meadows was the traditional German base camp pre-1953. Details on getting to this base-camp can be found here. Today, most mountaineers will approach Nanga Parbat from the Diamir base-camp. Although the Diamir Face is the easiest way to the summit, the base camp is the most logistically difficult to get to.
The Rupal Face is not only Nanga Parbat’s most technical face, it is the largest rock-face in the world. Sixty eight degrees at its base and 85 degrees near the top, it rises about 5 kilometers vertically from the Tap Alp Meadows to the summit. Unlike the Fairy Meadows base-camp, which has become increasingly commercialized, you probably won’t see anyone but locals on this trek.
