This page has been helpful. I'll be visiting the Base Camp above Fairy Meadows next week.
Thanks. Just added some more info on reaching BC from the north. Hope you are able to add some photos here on your return.
Added 2 more great images from my trips this year to the Rakhiot Face. I'll add more next week, as I'm trekking up the Rupal Valley from Tarashing. Hopefully the weather holds!
Thanks, great photos! Upload any photos you take in the Rupal valley please including any of the smaller peaks such as Rupal Peak, which is the first small peak on the south side of the valley. Also any pictures of the Jeep road from the KKH to Astor/Tarashing. I'll try to incorporate what I can into the text, Cheers
Thanks for this. Cheers WWilliam

Regarding the Mazeno ridge, you have mentioned that Kurtyka and Loretan (who climbed Nanga Parbat via the Diamir face in 1982) made an attempt in 1997. Loretan (that time with Jean Troillet) was back for an another failed attempt on the Mazeno ridge in 2000.
June 6 start an independent Polish mountain expedition "Nanga Parbat Experience 2013". Its aim is to get the eight-thousander - Nanga Parbat (8124 m).
Triple team challenged the next Himalayan eight-thousander. The way to the summit runs through Kinshofer Route on Diamir Face, measuring almost 4,000 meters.
- We will not gain the summit at all costs, we are not crazy. We intend to return in full - says Wlodek Kierus, one of the members of the expedition "Nanga Parbat Experience 2013", which apart from him taking part: Boguslaw Magrel and Adam Stadnik. They do not have the support of official institutions, sponsors or media partners. Raising money for the expedition was conducted only among Internet users via the platform polakpotrafi.pl.
Nanga Parbat is one of two eight-thousanders unclimbed in winter. This difficult, the infamous mountain, located north of Pakistan. Summit won in 1953, Hermann Buhl.
