Rakhiot is a subsidiary peak northeast of Nanga Parbat’s main summit. It was first climbed on July 16, 1932 by Peter Aschenbrenner of Austria and Herbert Kunigk of Germany, one of the several parties that tried and failed to summit Nanga Parbat itself from the 1930s to the 1950s. The tragic end of some of those expeditions left Nanga Parbat with its reputation as the “Killer Mountain”.
