11 Ridge From Nanga Parbat To Rakhiot Peak To Chongra Peak From Tarashing At Sunrise  [11 of 21]


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)
