From roaring avalanches to rock falls and rotten ice, Sher had already imagined a dozen ways to die on Nanga Parbat.
Then from the summer-house in our garden, in the early morning, 106 to feast my eyes on Nanga Parbat was a perpetual delight.
Throughout a circle of 120 miles' diameter Nanga Parbat surpasses all other summits by more than 9000 feet.
K2 is not so massive a mountain as Kinchinjunga and Nanga Parbat.
Few days were there during our stay in the Nanga Parbat region that were clear after 10 A.M., and this morning was no exception.
And above all will soar Nanga Parbat, looking at sunset like a pearly island rising from an ocean of ruddy light.
