Fairy Meadows

Overview


Fairy Meadow is a lush green plateau, at 3300 m, offering a breath taking view of Majestic Nanga Parbat 8126m (The Killer Mountain). Many people have called it the “Heaven on Earth”. These lush green meadows and forests lie at the base of Nanga Parbat at the western edge of the Himalayan range in Pakistan. Fairy Meadows is a very peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the mountain atmosphere and hospitality of the local people. The name Fairy Meadows is part of the legend that Fairies have their heaven on this lush green plateau. Hermann Buhl, the Austrian climber who made the first ascent of Nanga Parbat in 1953, named it Fairy Meadow due to its wonderful scenery.

It is about 540 km drive through Karakorum Highway, from Islamabad to Raikot Bridge (1400 m). Where local Jeeps will take you up to the Tatto village, it is one and half hour exciting drive from Raikot Bridge to the last village of Tatto (2900 m). Crossing through the most impressive view of Karakorum Highway & River Indus. On arrival at Tatto village, it starts trekking on very easy and simple route to Fairy meadows. It is a great experience to have overnight in fixed camping side, or in the traditionally built wood Huts, which offers magnificent view of the North face of the Nanga Parbat. There are several short walks on this plateau, including the full day excursion up to the base camp (3900 m) of Nanga Parbat. It is very easy walk through the forest till then the edge of the plateau called Beyal Camp (3500 m). Whereas the trek from Beyal Camp to base camp is little difficult along the Raikot glacier.

A Fairy Land

“I give it 5 star because you wont come across many places that would match Fairy Meadows in natural beauty, serenity and grandeur.

However, when you talk about the availability and management of facilities in the area, there is a lot that needs to be done. Hotels are very basic and their is little effort to keep the place clean. With more visitors every year, Fairy Meadows is being polluted at a rapid rate.
To reach Fairy Meadows, you will have to take a jeep from Raikot Bridge. The track leading to Tattu villlage gets quite narrow after a while and one would need services of an expert driver. After an hour’s drive the jeep track will end around a km ahead of Tattu village and from there on, one will have to walk on foot. Another 1.5 to 3 hours walk (depending on the ftiness level), one reahes the fairy land….. a place as beautiful and serine as you can imagine. When in Fairy Meadow, you will get a great view of majestic Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest mountain in the world. Flowing down from the Nanga Parbat massif is the Raikot Glacier which is eroneously written as Rakhiot Glacier on most maps including google map.
Average height of Fairy Meadow is 10800 ft. Even in summers, it gets quite cold at night.

Visiting Nanga Parbat base camp at 13500 ft, Beyal Camp at 11600 and trekking along Raikot Glacier and on the surrounding hills are the activities that one must undertake when in Fairy Meadow. When on Nanga Parbat base camp, dont forget to pay tribute on the graves of Alfred Drexel and Karl Unterkircher, the two great mountaineers who lost their lives while attempting the killer mountain.
You must go to Fairy Meadows with proper gear inclusing shoes (most important), clothing, first aid and utility kits. It is going to be one outing that you won’t forget for years.”
