Brief Description

A short trek to the lovely alpine Fairy meadows 3306m can be combined with different trips in the area. Fairy Medow, with day hikes or side trips, has a bit of everything Himalayan trekking can offer- a hair raising jeep ride to get there, lush medows, amazing glaciers and great views of Nanga Parbat massif 8125m right infront of you. Four major icefalls converge to form the 13km Raikot Glacier, beneath Nanga Parbatís north face. Beside the glacier there are pine and fir forests, sparkling streams and open grassland that have enchanted visitors and prompted the name Fairy Medow.
