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

    Hi Zia,
    It should be either Tarishing or Astore if not Rama. If you want better views its Tarishing but then you will need to leave early in the morning.

    There were two very basic hotels in Tarishing, I stayed in Rupal Hotel. It was fine but don’t expect five star facilities.
    Contact numbers of Rupal Hotel are 03435352646 and 03134330402.

    Recently I have found that if you are visiting Deosai, you can stay overnight at Chilam Chowki and you can enter Deosai in 15 – 20 minutes (Sheosar lake is around 30 – 35 minutes from Chilam). Our round trip to Sheosar lake from Chilam took us almost 2 hours last month.

    Is there any reasonable place to stay at Chilam Chowki.
    and second question that We want to go on Bikes till Rupal is is posible? how much time will be from Astore to Tarishing and then to Rupal?

    Hi Arshad,
    Yes there are few hotels at Chilam chowki.
    I am not sure if the track from Tarishing to Rupal is clear as we were there last month and there was a glacier between Tarishing and Rupal.
    Astore to Tarishing is 1.5 hours – 2 hours, from there Rupal is 25 – 30 minutes on Jeep. Tarishing to Rupal is a jeepable trek not sure if you can do it on bikes, you can call Rupal hotel on +92 343 5352646 and get the latest info.
