Fairy Meadows Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan

Fairy Meadows is one of the spectacular and breathtaking grasslands near the base of Nanga Parbat ( 9th Highest Peak in the world) in District Diamer of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. 




Fairy Meadows is at a distance of 12 km from the Raikhot Bridge on the Karakorum Highway in the village Tato. It takes about 3-4 hours to reach the camping area of the Fairy Meadow from the Tato village, covering a distance of 5 km through a hiking track. 

Fairy Meadows presents a totally stunning view because of its surrounding landscape.The grassland is surrounded by thick alpine forest. The high altitude area and north-facing slopes mostly consist of coniferous forest having Pinus wallichiana, Picea smithiana and Abies pindrow trees, while in the high altitude areas with little sunlight are birch and willow dwarf shrubs. The southern slopes are concentrated with juniper and scrubs, namely Juniperus excelsa and J. turkesticana. In the low altitudes, the major plant found is Artemisia, with yellow ash, stone oaks and Pinus gerardiana spread among it. Research has suggested similarities between Pinus wallichiana found in the meadows with a sister species, Pinus peuce, found in the Balkans, based on leaf size. Researchers have found thirty-one species of Rust fungi in the area

Favorable Visiting Season:
The favorable season to visit the Fairy Meadows is April to September.

  1. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's
    tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
