Meet the members of the Shared Summits expedition to Nanga Parbat, hear their thoughts on the climb ahead and follow them on the first part of their journey into the Himalayas. The adventure continues in Nanga Parbat: Part II.

Earlier this season, Nanga Parbat was the scene of tragedy for another expedition—Italian mountaineer Karl Unterkircher died on the peak, and his companions were stranded for ten days before being rescued. Read more about the tragedy in the July 24, 2008 NewsWire.
