Hunza Valley Batura Glacier Trek


The former mountain kingdom of Hunza and Nagar, in the Gilgit-Baltistan bordering China, are relatively recent additions to the Pakistan map. A beautiful land scattered with lush apricot orchids, surrounded by snow-capped peaks towering above 7000m, and set amidst some of the world’s largest glaciers, make for an impressive and colorful display. The upper Hunza Gojal valley area is home to the 56 km long Batura glacier. This popular trek is accessible from the Karakorum Highway and reaches a maximum elevation of only 4000m, making it the ideal trek for novice trekkers and those wishing to take advantage of a spring or autumn.
