There are various backup summits, including North Peak (7,816 m/25,643 ft) about 3 km north of the primary summit. Close to the base of the Rupal Face is a lovely cold lake called Latbo, over an occasional shepherds' town of the same name. 

Nanga Parbat is the ninth most astounding mountain on the planet at 8,126 meters (26,660 ft) above ocean level. It is the western grapple of the Himalayas around which the Indus waterway skirts into the fields of Pakistan.

Climbing endeavors began from the get-go Nanga Parbat. In 1895 Albert F. Revelry drove an endeavor to the top, and came to just about 6,100 m (20,000 ft) on the Diamir (West) Face, however Mummery and two Gurkha sidekicks later kicked the bucket surveying the Rakhiot Face.Nanga Parbat was initially climbed, by means of the Rakhiot Flank (East Ridge), on July 3, 1953 by Austrian climber Hermann Buhl, an individual from a German-Austrian group. The undertaking was sorted out by the stepbrother of Willy Merkl, Karl Herrligkoffer from Munich, while the endeavor pioneer was Peter Aschenbrenner from Innsbruck, who had partaken in the 1932 and 1934 endeavors. When of this undertaking, 31 individuals had as of now passed on the mountain. 

The last push for the summit was sensational: Buhl proceeded with alone for the last 1300 meters, after his colleagues had turned back. Affected by the medications pervitin (taking into account the stimulant methamphetamine utilized by warriors amid World War II), padutin, and tea from coca leaves, he came to the summit hazardously late, at 7 p.m., the climbing harder and additional tedious than he had expected. His drop was hindered when he lost a crampon. Gotten by haziness, he was compelled to bivouac standing upright on a restricted edge, holding a little handhold with one hand. Depleted, he snoozed once in a while, however figured out how to keep up his equalization. He was likewise exceptionally lucky to have a quiet night, so he was not subjected to wind chill. He at last came to his high camp at 7 p.m. the following day, 40 hours in the wake of setting out. The climb was made without oxygen, and Buhl is the main man to have made the first rising of a 8000 m top altitude.
