Rupal Peak 6000m

Rupal Peak 6000 m is a mountain in Pakistan’s western Himalayas. Situated across the valley from Nanga Parbat (8,126 meters, 9th highest in the world), Rupal Peak stands at approximately 6,000 meters (~20,000 feet) with views of Rupal Valley, Astor Valley, the Mazeno Wall and Nanga Parbat itself.

Rupal Peak 6000m climbing

The climb begins in Tarashing with two days of gentle walking up Rupal Valley.

The peak is located just south of Nanga Parbat on the Rupal Valley and is sometimes climbed by mountaineers as they acclimatize for higher local peaks. Despite its unique beauty, steep north face and impressive height, Rupal is greatly overshadowed by Nanga Parbat, the Mazeno Wall, and the mighty Rupal Face. To its west lie Laila Peak and Shaigiri, and to its north flows the Rupal Glacier which later forms the Rupal River.
