09 Nanga Parbat Rupal And East Faces, Rakhiot Peak From Tarashing At Sunrise  [6 of 18]


The yellow light of sunrise quickly changes to white on the Nanga Parbat Rupal and East Faces from Tarashing. Rakhiot Peak is on the right. Gunther Messnerís diary May 15, 1970: The day dawns bright and cloudless. For the first time I see Nanga and Chongra Peak from the south: the impression is overwhelming. Huge hanging glaciers, terrifying precipices, furrowed by avalanches. Right over to the left is the summit of Nanga! (The Naked Mountain by Reinhold Messner)
