Naked Mountain

Naked Mountain

Photo Information
Nanga Parbat is the ninth highest mountain on Earth. Located in Pakistan, Nanga Parbat is one of the eight-thousanders, with a summit elevation of 8,126 meters (26,660 ft). Nanga Parbat translates to "Naked Mountain" in English; parbat deriving from the Sanskrit word parvata पर्वत meaning "mountain, rock", and nanga from the Sanskrit nagna नग्न meaning "naked".

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.

That is an impressive photo of spectacular mountains. How did you get up there? I can't see any mention of an oxygen mask in the Exif data .

Spectacular. You do seem close Jon, did you lose altitude a bit to get a closer look?
