Rush Lake Trek Pakistan:
Rush Lake trek is a rather easy but well rewarding trek in the heart of the Hunza valley Pakistan. This treks will take you to the amazing Karakorum mountains clusters the best on earth. You will be Crossing glaciers, meadows and terraced fields of Karakoram. The trek ends at Rush Lake. (4,700 m 15,400 ft):
Whats more is that if we climb a nearby hilltop, we can see K2 along with the other high peaks of the Karakoram from here.
This is a short trek you will start by driving by Jeep across the hunza river at Hoper. This is where the snout of the famous Barpu glacier meets another glacier called Bualter. Hunzakuts (local people from Hunza) believe that glaciers are either male or female. Each glacier exudes its own gender qualities and when a male and female glacier meet they give birth to a baby glacier!
