This is a beautiful trek to Rush Lake at 4694 m with the ascent of Rush Peak (5200 m). 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 Hopper and via the Hopper Glacier (Bualtar Glacier) and Miar Glacier, (which rises fromthe Miar and Phuparash) peaks. The trek to Rush Lake can be reached without the need for a long and difficult climb. Yet Rush Peak itself is a highpoint on a broad ridge that can be reached with relative ease. This ridge is almost 20km long and separates the glaciated valley of the Barpu from the steep sided Hispar Valley. It starts close to the town of Nagir and rises gently South Eastwards to culminate in a series of very steep unclimbed 6000m peaks.
Rush Lake and Rush Peak lie about half way along this ridge where the crest changes from a broad feature to an impregnable series of crumbing rock pinnacles. 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. 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.
