Located in the Northern Areas, Nanga Parbat is the 9th highest mountain on Earth. Nanga Parbat means "Naked Mountain" in Urdu. It is also known as the "Killer Mountain", Nanga Parbat was one of the deadliest of the Eight-thousanders for climbers in the first half of the twentieth century; since that time it has been less so, though still an extremely serious climb. It is also an immense, dramatic peak that rises far above its surrounding terrain.
