Itinerary Code (NT-160). Rush lake Trekking is a light adventure trek, and best for beginners, but equally enchanting for experienced Trekkers. It’s located in the Karakorum Range, Nagar valley. The main town being the nearest is Hunza,Gilgit-Baltistan Pakistan.

Rush lake is one of the world’s highest Alpine lakes at an Altitude of 4,694 m (15,400 ft.) locally known as “Rush Phari” which means sparkling water. During the trek, on a sunny day you will have a view of the mighty K-2, Broad Peak (Only the tip) and gigantic Peaks of Hunza Valley. During the Trek, you will be crossing several white glaciers, high meadows and lovely irrigated terraces. Local shepherds during the summer take the herds of Yaks and other domestic animals to low laying summer pastures during the summer.

From Rush lake there is a two hours climb to Rush Peak (5,098 m) which can be climbed by beginner trekkers, all we expect is willingness and a bit of fitness. From the top of Rush Peak you can have stunning views of Miar Peak (6,824 m) and Phuparash Peak (6,574 m).
