    Fairy Meadows, Nanga Parbat, Pakistan

    Fairy Meadows is a lush green plateau at 3300m, located at the western most edge of the Himalayas in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of northern Pakistan. It offers a breathtaking view of north face of majestic 8126m high Nanga Parbat ("Naked Mountain"). It is renowned for its tranquility, is sometimes known as "Heaven on Earth".
    Name Hermann Buhl, the Austrian climber who in 1953 made the first ascent of Nanga Parbat, named it Fairy Meadows on account of its wonderful scenery, taking into consideration a legend that fairies had their heaven there.

    Accessibility By Air it is accessible through flights by PIA between Islamabad and Gilgit, the capital of Gilgit Baltistan. Followed by a 2 hours drive to Raikot Bridge. By Road getting to Fairy Meadows requires a 540km drive along the Karakorum Highway, from Islamabad to Raikot Bridge (1400 m) at Indus River. NATCO operates Regular and VIP bus service to facilitate local passengers as well as tourists. After reaching Raikot Bridge, another hour and a half's adventurous ride in local jeeps ends up at village of Tatto (2900 m). From Tatto the trek to Fairy Meadows take approximately two and a half hours by foot. Horses are also available for riding or luggage.

    Accommodation Visitors to Fairy Meadows can choose to camp or spend the night in traditional wooden huts offering a magnificent view of the north face of Nanga Parbat. There are hotels with reasonable facilities, many of them are built recently. Galactic View of Milky way at night is a wonderful experience for tourists who spend their nights in camps rather than staying in wooden huts. Camps are available at very economical rent from local hotels and camp sites.
    People Local peoples are very friendly and supportive. Fairy Meadows serves as grazing field for their cattle. Their families stay in huts away from tourist hotels and camping sites. Tourists are advised to respect local traditions.

    Landscape and Trek to Base Camp Fairy Meadows is a Lush Green Plateau on the both sides of Raikot Glacier. Most of the camping sites and hotels are located at western side of the glacier. Although the glacier can be crossed to go on the eastern side as well, to get a different and closer view of Nanga Parbat.
    The Western Green Plateau is a base for several short walks as well as a full day excursion up to the Nanga Parbat base camp (3900 m). The first part of this route, through the forest to Beyal Camp (3500 m) on the edge of the plateau, is relatively simple, whereas the trek from Beyal Camp to Nanga Parbat base camp is more tricky, following the Raikot Glacier. The journey takes approximately three and a half hours although this depends on the participant's level of fitness. Hiring local guide is highly recommended.

    Other Activities At Fairy Meadows tourists can enjoy horse riding, as well as games of football, cricket and polo (specially organised for tourists). Dead Forest Wood is normally used for Bonfire at chilling nights.
    Visiting Season Fairy Meadows is closed in winter for conventional tourists on account of the heavy snowfall it receives, but it remains open for adventures who like snow and survival expeditions. It is accessible in summer and winter, with May–July said to be the best time to visit.
