Tarishing Village – The most beautiful village of Pakistan


Situated at an altitude of around 2900 meters on southern face of Nanga Parbat, Tarishing is one of the most beautiful villages of Pakistan. It is the last jeepable point towards Rupal face of Nanga Parbat. The village has around 250 inhabitants, main language is Shina. There is no direct transport available and you have to reach Astore first and from there its a 1 1/2 hour drive, road condition after Gorikot is very bad. In July 2013, during my annual visit to Pakistan, I decided to visit Tarishing. We reached Jaglot from Pindi and from there we hired a taxi for Astore, from Astore we again hired a taxi which took us to Tarishing village after crossing Gorikot and Chorat village. Journey from Astore to Tarishing is memorable, due to the stunning views I would call it a life time experience.

There are two hotels in the village which are Nanga Parbat and Rupal Hotel, we stayed at the Rupal Hotel. If you ever dreamed about counting stars at night than Tarishing is the perfect spot for making this dream true.

Best time to visit Tarishing  Valley is between July to September. Weather is cold in the evenings in summer and it gets intolerable in winter (around -20C). You may also consider visiting Fairy Meadows and then trek to the other side of Nanga Parbat base camp.

    Kindly advise options for overnight stay if travelling next day to Deosai, in terms of good scenic beauty and better hotel accommodations, Tarishing or Gorikot?
    Regards, Zia
