Down from Rakaposhi

Hi everyone,

We are down from a wet but fun adventure up to Rakaposhi base camp. Our 1st day up we got hit with a big rainstorm, enough to get everyone soaked. We were all a bit cold for a while but once shelter was up we’re able to get dry and comfortable. On our rest day we walked in the glacier and explored the moraine ridges surrounding base camp. Today we walked down to Minapin village and got cleaned up, enjoying lunch and dinner here at Osho Thang. We celebrated Jessica’s birthday with a local cake!
Tomorrow we are off to Fairy Meadows on the Southern side of Nanga Parbat the 9th highest mountain in the world at 8123 meters.
We will be up exploring that area for 3 days and offline. Back down to Gilgit on Friday.

Thanks for following along

Eric and the team

Thanks
Eric Murphy

  • Self Love and Wilderness

    Submission by Avalon Qian. “Tag responsibly, keep the West wild.” I pause mid-mindless-instagram scroll. This is not the first time I have seen this sentiment in an instagram post or an article about leaving no trace: “Tag responsibly.” “Keep the West wild.” What does this tag mean? I understand the fear that wild places may […]
