Re: Beautiful composition !

Thanks for your kind comments to my photo. The Fairy Meadows is very beautiful place located in the western himalayas. The summer season in this place is very pleasant. The best trekking season in the area is from the month of May to End of October each year. However on the Nanga Parbat, the weather condition is very cold. Beside all this, this year a winter expedition is here in Pakistan for climbing this great mountain during the month of December 2007 to February 2008.
Thanks and best wishes and regards, Afzal

Great photo!

I couldn't get a photo of this classic shot because of bad weather. Am I right in saying this is Beyal in the foreground?

Greetings Afzal.

How many meters of elevation between Fairy Meadows and Nanga Parbat summit? Wow! I checked and it is almost 5000! Herman Buhl first ascent solo without oxygen! Considering the awesome dangers of this peak and time it was climbed this has to be one of, if not THE greatest mountaineering achievment in human history.
