Nanga Parbat is the second highest mountain of Pakistan and ninth highest in the world. It not part of the Karakoram. It is separated from the Karakoram by the mighty Indus River. Since the first disastrous British expedition started very early In 1895 A.D Albert Frederick Mummery led an expedition to the peak, and reached almost 6,100 m (20,000 ft) on the Diamir (West) Face. mountaineers have tried to ascent its summit through different routes but few lucky ones have succeeded. In 1934 four German climbers and 6 porters perished in a storm. In 1937 disaster 18 Sherpas and 12 climbers were buried alive by avalanche that covered their camp.  In fact Nanga Parbat has claimed more lives than any other 8000ers relative to the number of attempts; hence it is named as the frightening nickname of Killer Mountain. It was first climbed in 1953 A.D. by a joint Austrian – German Expedition. Hermann Buhl made the final ascent in a hard 41 hours solo ordeal without oxygen. Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner climbed the south face (Rupal Face) with his brother Gunther in 1970, descending by the Diamir face, where Gunther lost his life in an adventure.
