When Eduard Koblmiller set foot in the Nangma valley during his successful K6 expedition in 1970, he described it as a place of "unusual and primordial beauty." The Nangma Valley looks like an impressionist painting with extreme color contrasts and abstract lines that point to the sky with astonishing verticality. The valley's beauty is almost touching, and unlike other and much more famous places, the base camps are only a short hike from the valley.

An easy trek to one of the most beautiful campsites in the world (Nangma Valley, 3950m) with optional day hikes to base camps such as Amin Brakk (the Great Tower), K6 (Baltistan Peak), and more.
