“Killer Mountain, Nanga Parbat - naked mountain - is the ninth highest peak (8125 meters) in the world and second highest in Pakistan, situated on the western tip of great Himalayan. Its south face, known as Rupal Face rises over 5000 meters from the valley floor to the summit. After a German climber Hurman Bhul scaled it in 1953, many climbers have stepped on the majestic peak and many have lost their lives in their pursuits.”

After a mercifully uneventful flight, we landed in a somewhat dusty, noisy, hot Rawalpindi (locals call it Pindi) and our senses were immediately bombarded from all angles by sights, sounds and smells, a subtle blend of cooking, herbs, spices, smoke and sewers.
