Foreign climbers post stunning pictures of Nanga Parbat on Twitter

As the winter attempt at Nanga Parbat has just resumed after a few days closure. Foreign climbers have shared some stunning pictures of the mountain on Twitter.

Foreign climber Daniele Nardi is currently on a Nanga Parbat ascent and shared some beautiful pictures on the social media.

 

Nanga Parbat base camp was attacked more than two years ago on June 22, 2013 which left 10 tourists dead including 9 foreign mountaineers.

The dead included one American, three Ukrainians, two Slovakians, one Lithuainian, one Chinese, a Sherpa from Nepal and a Pakistani guide. Police later said that the attackers managed to reach the camp after first kidnapping two Pakistani guides.

Several expeditions to Nanga Parbat – at 8,126 meters (26,660 feet), the world’s ninth highest peak and known among climbers as the Killer Mountain – have since been canceled, dealing a blow to Pakistan’s once thriving mountaineering sector at the height of the trekking season.
