Fairy Meadows, which was christened by German mountaineers and is referred to locally as Joot, is a verdant expanse situated in the vicinity of a base camp for Nanga Parbat, located in Diamer District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. With an elevation of approximately 3,300 metres (10,800 ft) above sea level, it functions as the starting point for hikers aiming to scale the Rakhiot face of Nanga Parbat. The Government of Pakistan designated Fairy Meadows as a National Park in 1995.

A notable draw of this location, aside from the meadows per se, is the prospect of viewing the majestic Nanga Parbat Mountain. Tourists frequently embark on a trek to the mountain's base camp from Fairy Meadows.

The meadows are enveloped by dense alpine woodland. At lower elevations, Artemisia is the predominant plant species, intermixed with yellow ash, stone oaks, and Pinus gerardiana. The region harbors a population of brown bears, albeit dwindling, and a few musk deer, which are classified as endangered.
