Off to Nanga Parbat Basecamp

by in Gilgit-Baltistan

I had been waiting so long to go to Fairy meadows and Nanga Parbat base camp. The recent incident at the base camp was sad and i had to give my plan a second thought.

Fairy meadows is one of the prior places i wanted to go back in my childhood. I still remember that i saved an old low-resolution photo of Fairy Meadows somewhere from the internet in a folder called “places i want to go”. Later in life the expeditios i took, i always kept Nanga Parbat for some other time.

I have to go now. Firstly, if i don’t go, i will be compromising on my dreams. Secondly, those people who try to disturb law and order in my country , affecting tourism in the region will be successful if a traveler cease to go.

Therefore, i am ready and packed up to go, camp there for two-three nights, take photographs, connect with nature, collect my thoughts and enjoy stars at night.

    You’re taking along Shams & Rumi with you. Great great companions.

    By the way I was thinking you actually placed ALL the stuff on the floor and set it just to take the picture?! Kitna free time hai :p
