    Batura Trek Passu Hunza Valley

The Batura trek is the most accessible of giant Karakorum Glaciers from Karakorum Highway. It stretches west about 65km with more than 10 peaks above 7000m. This trek is an easy stroll along a flower-filled gully between the lateral moraine of the Batura Glacier and the mountains. It is one of the finest in the Karakorum with beautiful landscape and no major difficulties. Most of the trek is through ablation valley along streams, with almost no steep sections. The mountain views of Batura, Passu and Shispare Peak superb. The Passu women who spend the summer in the pastureland beside the glacier are friendly to female trekkers. Spending time with Passu people and their yaks in the pasture allows a glimpse into their unique way of mountain life. The views of six Batura Peaks and the huge ice-fall from them to the glacier below are among the more remarkable mountain scenes in the Karakorum.
