Description

This is the most popular and easiest of Nanga Parbat's faces. It has several routes and was last attempted by a Polish winter expedition in the December 2008, however because of snow conditions on the way to base-camp the expedition was abandoned.

Getting There

Take a bus/van from Rawalpindi Pir Wadhai stop to Chilas OR Fly from Islamabad to Gilgit and take a jeep to the village of Buner Daas. The trek to the basecamp starts from the bridge on the Buner River, This bridge is also the site where Reinhold Messner was brought by locals after he lost his brother to an avalanche while descending from the Diamir Face. From the bridge, in the summer it takeas about 2 days to get to the basecamp at 13,000 feet.
