This is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque locations in Northern Pakistan. It requires a high level of physical fitness as you'll be hiking along mountainous routes to get to your desired destination. For an average person, it takes about 5 hours to get to the Base Camp from Fairy Meadows. But once you're there, it is worth all the... More

But it is now utterly spoilt by the total lack of respect shown by a vast majority of visitors. Rubbish strewn around, lime green plastic bottles just thrown by the track and around the camp site along with anything else that people can't be bothered to take with them. It is now overwhelmed with very large and noisy groups who... More

I was there last year summer. The another name for the Nanga Parbat basecamp is called the Fairy Meadow. I was really fascinated by the name and requested my guide to bring me there. Fairy Meadow is indeed a very beautiful and green meadow, filled with lush green grasses, evergreen trees, tall deciduous trees and many cows, sheeps and donkey.... More

Well, the Majestic Mountain it self is amazingly beautiful visible from the medow, fairy medows. But the fairy medows in it self isnt such a beautiful place. Too much touristy. The jeep track to fairy medows is said to be one of the most dangerous tracks in the world. From fairy medows you can hike up to the base camp.... More
