Tirich Mir

From Wikipedia:

Elevation 7,708 metres (25,289 ft)

Tirich Mir (alternatively Terich Mir and Terichmir) is the highest mountain in the Hindu Kush region of northern Pakistan.

The mountain was first climbed in 1950 by a Norwegian expedition comprised of Arne Næss, P. Kvernberg, H. Berg, and Tony Streather.

Tirich Mir overlooks Chitral town. It can easily be seen from the main bazaar. It can also be seen from Afghanistan. According to a local legend, it is impossible to climb it, because of all the Jinns, demons, witches and fairies who live up there.

Almost every year, a few tourists are killed while hiking and trekking around Tirich Mir. Often, they fall down into deep crevasses and their bodies are never found.

The last village in Chitral before reaching Tirich Mir is Village Tirich. It is located in Mulkow. The people there speak the Khowar language. The residents are available for hire as porters and tourist guides and will lead trekkers part way up the mountain, but there is a point beyond which they will not go.
