This beautiful area is suffering an irresponsible tourist development that threatens the ecological equilibrium. The Fairy Meadows are not a "fairy" meadows anymore, but a bunch of Hotels that caters for noisy crowds of local tourists. The local forest suffered the demand for wood and there is garbage everywhere. It is a shame because this valley it is really magical. What it should be a hiker heaven, it is a tourist trap. I suggest to go to Beyal Camp, it is basic but for those who like lonely walks, shepherd culture and enjoy nature sounds it is a better choice.

Nanga Parbat is the only eight thousanders out of five that falls in Himalyan Range, all the other falls in Karakorum Range, that is why the area surrounding Nanga is green fairy meadows and Rupal valley both, from raikot bridge its crazy jeep ride for about 1.5 hours to Tatto then 4 hours hike to fairy meadows, few hours to Beyal camp and if any one is up for adventure then few hours from beyal is the base camp after crossing the glacier , i did that solo, if you are lucky nanga parbat at full moon from base camp is site to be hold, absolutely magical,
do not go in June & July due to local tourism its all cramped up , August and September would be appropriate time here

Fairy meadows, one of the easiest approach to this 8000 meters peak, the killer and savage mountain of Himalayas, located in Gilgit-Baltistan.
Normally it's a 3/4 days trip from Gilgit to the base camp and back,
2 hrs drive from Gilgit city to Raikot bridge, where-from a jeep drive would take you to Fairy point 2 hrs drive on a bumpy and adventurous road and then 3 hrs trek to Fairy meadows at 3300 meters and one could see this Himalayan giant from the window of the room.
The base camp is located at 3900 meters, some 5 to 7 hrs trek from fairy meadows and back.
While visiting the area please keep a few things in your mind.
The female trekkers/travelers please cover yourself properly, as it's sunni dominant area so please respect the local culture.
Please avoid photographing the women especially at Beyal camp, where you'd come across the local shepherd families.
Please discourage the bonfire , as the pine forests are getting thinner day by day due to increase in the number of tourists to this area.
Safe travels ..

This will life long trek if you choose to take the 3 day trail to Nanga Parbat base camp. Vertical Explorers took great care of us and I would recommend them as your outfitter.

Nanga Parbat is one of the eight-thousanders and is notoriously difficult climb. However, the basecamp is very approachable and people with average fitness can reach the basecamp. Fairy Meadows is a famous tourist spot a few kilometres down the basecamp.

The best scenic location in the world. I have traveled around the world Alaska, Scandinavia, Switzerland, etc nothing is more original.

You need to make sure you visit in full moon and stay overnight. If you lucky with clear skies, NP & meadows with Glacier view will make you feel that fairies should be landing any minute.

enjoy.

Route: Isb - Abbotabad - Naran - Babusar - Chilas - Raikot - Tatu - Fairy Meadows - Beyal.

Travel Time: Isb to Raikot - 11 to 12 hrs (you may like to plan night stay enroute, in case you want to enjoy Abbotabad, Kaghan, Naran areas)

Road Condition: The road is 10/10 from Isb to Babusar, KKH is 7/10. Raikot to Tatu is a narrow jeep track (not for the faint hearted) 10/10 for adventure seekers. Tatu to Meadows will be a hike of about 2-3 hours, although horses are also available.

Best Time to Visit: Summers (July & August)

Accommodation: you can camp there, if you like but huts & tents are available and one doesn’t even need advance booking for a small group. In case travelling with kids or in large groups, booking is highly recommended.
We stayed with “Fairy Meadows Cottages”, a small business operated by friendly and welcoming staff. Raikot Sarai lodges is also an option but FM Cottages offer much better view and more space to explore.

DOs: warm layers for evening, comfortable shoes for mountain walk, backpack, water.

Donts: Don’t carry extra load, if you plan to walk.

Attractions: Must walk to “Beyal camp”, you just can’t afford to miss such an amazing spot. Its just an hour (40 mins to an hour) from meadows. Most people go ahead to Nanga Parbat base camp as well.

Cheers.

Beautiful sights best local meal especially mutton of local goats is too much tasty. Local community is friendly and loves to see tourists, as its their only source of income. The polo ground of fairy meadows is beautiful. Locals invite the tourists to take part in polo matches.

Political instability is the only reason to make this place not easy accessible . If you have the chance to travel through Pakistan Kashmir you should definitely consider to enjoy the beautiful trek to BC
