Phari Trek in the Karakoram:
Rush Phari Trek in the Karakoram (Rush Phari means sparkling
Lake), is one of the most recommended treks for those who want
to have a first time trekking experience with a life long pleasant
memory. 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).
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. Our trek starts at Hoper,
a marvelous valley with green fields and fruit orchards which
is also famous for its potato seeds which are exported to other
parts of Pakistan especially in the Northern Areas. If you have
enough skill you can climb Push Peak.
