Nanga Parbat is the ninth-highest mountain in the world at 8,126 metres (26,660 ft) above sea level. The mountain forms the western anchor of the Himalayan Range and is the westernmost eight-thousander. Its name is derived from the Sanskrit words which translate to “Naked Mountain”. The mountain is known locally by its Tibetan name Diamer or Deo Mir, meaning “huge mountain”.
An immense, dramatic peak rising far above its surrounding terrain, Nanga Parbat is known to be a difficult climb, and has earned the nickname Killer Mountain for its high number of climber fatalities. It is also the second most prominent peak of the Himalayas, after Mount Everest.
Nanga Parbat was first climbed, via the East Ridge, on July 3, 1953 by Austrian climber Hermann Buhl on the German–Austrian expedition. By the time of this expedition, 31 people had already died on the mountain.
