Nanga Parbat is the only Himalayan Peak situated apart from the other 4 in Karakorams, clustered around Concordia, the famous place on Baltoro Glacier. Concordia trek is one of the most demanding but rewarding treks in the world. Serving as the basic point for the 4 giants of Karakorams i.e. Gasherbrum II ( 8035m ), Broad Peak ( 8047m ) and Hidden Peak or Gasherbrum I ( 8068m ) dominated by the king of the mountains, K-2 ( 8611m ), Concordia is the junction of Baltoro and Godwin Austin Glaciers with several other tributaries. We drive from Skardu to Askole, the last permanent village at the head of jeep road and visit base camp of all 4 eight thousanders in days to follow. Completing the trek at Hushe across the Ghondoghoro Pass (5,750m), we drive to Gilgit and go onwards to one of the most scenic places, Fairy Meadows, which offers a superb view of Nanga Parbat (8125m), the ninth highest in the world. After visiting Concordia and crossing Ghondoghoro La, a trek to base camp of Nanga Parbat is a soft adventure. A night in tents or in log cabins at Fairy Meadows is a wonderful experience before returning to the busting towns with daily busy routine life. This is an adventure beyond your imagination.
