The Himalaya are a great Mountains range formed by the collision of Indo-Pakistan tectonic plate with the Asian continent, the central Himalayan mountains are situated in Nepal, white eastern mountain extent to the borders of Butan and Sikkim. Nanga Parbat massif is the western corner pillar of the Himalayas. It is an isolated range of Peaks just springing up from nothing, and is surrounded by the rivers Indus and Astore. Nanga Parbat or "Nanga Parvata" means the naked mountain. Its original and appropriate name, however is Diamir the King of the Mountains.  The Legendary Mountaineer, Hermann Buhl, climbed the peak first time in June 1953. Nanga Parbat (Main) has a height of 8,126m) 26660 ft. it has three vast faces. The Raikot face is dominated by the North and South silver crags and silver plateau, the Diamer face is rocky in the beginning. It converts itself into ice fields around Nanga Parbat peak. The Rupal face is the highest precipice in the World. Reinhold Messner a living legend in mountaineering from Italy, says that "every one who has ever stood at the foot of this face (4500m /14,764ft up above the Top Alpe, studied it or flown over it, could not help but have been amazed by its sheer size, it has become Known as the highest rock and ice wall in the world. Nanga Parbat has always been associated with tragedies and tribulations, until it was climbed in 1953, A lot of mountaineers perished on Nanga Parbat since 1895, even today it is claming a heavy tell of human life lives from the mountaineers in search of adventure and thrill or becoming its victims in persuit of their eagerness to find new and absolutely unclimbed route leading to its summit.

It was in 1841 that a huge landslide falls of to the Indus River blocked; this created a huge lake 55-km long. The flood of water that released when the dame broke caused a rise of 80 feet in the river level at attack swept the Sikh Army, Sometime the same happened in Shayok and Hunza River.
