Rush Lake

Rash Phari Trek in the Karakoram (Rash Phari means sparkling Lake). It is one of the most recommended treks for those who want to have a first time trekking experience with a life long excitement. This is a beautiful short trek to Rush Lake at 4694 m with the ascent of Rush Peak (5200 m). The trek starts in Hoper (2790 m) and climbs up to Rush Peak at 5200 m where it is possible to see K2 and Broad Peak. The scenery is spectacular with all the giant peaks of Hunza visible. Across the Hispar valley there is a wall of four peaks from 7025 to 7885 m high. In addition there are great views of Rakaposhi, Ultar and Spantik. On the return to Hoper we cross to the western side of the Barpu glacier. No other short trek offers such magnificent mountain scenery.

This trek is for those who have a taste of easy trekking and soft adventure in the beautiful regions of the earth. Rush Lake Trek in Hunza Valley will provide great pleasure and adventure for trekkers. Eric Shipton called Hunza Valley “the ultimate manifestation of mountain grandeur.” Our trek in this area offers a fantastic walk and some of world’s most beautiful scenes. The trek is very easy even for people as old as 75 years. We walk on glaciers, through villages to a look at the real life of those living at foot steps of mighty glaciers, along the irrigated terraced fields with the impressive view of the mighty Karakoram Mountains from summit of Rush Peak (5098 Meters). It is the junction of two famous glaciers of Barpu and Bualter. It is interesting that local legends talk about the gender of these glaciers of being male and female and also about their meeting and birth of the new glaciers.

Rush Lake is a high altitude lake located near Rush Pari Peak (5,098 m). At over 4,694 meters, Rush is one of the highest alpine lakes in Pakistan. It is located about 15 km north of Miar Peak and Spantik (Golden Peak) (which are in the Nagar valley). Rush Lake and Rush Peak can be reached via Nagar and Hopar and via the Hopar Glacier (Bualtar Glacier) and Miar Glacier, (which rises from

the Miar and Phuparash) peaks. The trek to Rush Lake provides spectacular views of Miar Peak, Phuparash Peak and Ultar Sar
