During the winter season of 2006/07 we established our base camp at the foot of Nanga Parbat after days of walking through the Rupal Valley. Herders, sheep, and goats circled round our campsite on their way to the seasonal settlement of Latobah after grazing in nearby areas. During forty days they adopted us as neighbours while we attempted reaching the top of the Naked Mountain.
