(0 Reviews)

Fairy Meadows Trek as referred to is the starting point for trekking to Nanga Parbat. It gets its name from its immense beauty due to green pastures, at 3300 m with a breath-taking view of Majestic Nanga Parbat (8125 meters 9th highest in the world Mountain) and fairy meadows cottages. Although not easily accessible due to rough fairy meadows road and uphill walk it is one of the most picturesque spots in the world. Fairy meadows temperature is very pleasant in summer.

Many Pakistani and foreign tourists visit fairy meadows trek from May to September. In the past few years locals have constructed basic but clean fairy meadows cottages and rest houses in the area which makes it a pleasant holiday spot to live in place away from all the worldly affairs. The fairy meadows temperature in the evenings and mornings would be freezing cold.

Highlights
  • Hike the soul-stirring Nanga Parbat Base Camp
  • Witness alpine meadows and rocky peaks
  • Conquer windswept cols and steep trails
  • Earn that delicious mountain meal
  • Stay in remote mountain cottages and camps

 

The name Fairy Meadows is part of the legend that Fairies have their heaven on this lush green plateau. Hermann Buhl, the Austrian climber who made the first ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953, named it Fairy Meadow due to its wonderful scenery.

Nanga Parbat, the massive massif – Killer Mountain, Pakistan’s second tallest and world eight tallest – has beckoned to mountaineers for centuries and rewards all who scale her with a dazzling variety of ecosystems, microclimates, and some of the continent’s most jaw-dropping views. The goal of climbing mountains is, of course, to get to the top, but given the idyllic alpine scenery up to the base camp here, you might find yourself more than a little inclined to linger on the way.
