Rush Lake Trek

Taste the authentic adventure savors of the Himalayas

Karakorum Expeditions recommends the Rush Lake trek for you if you desire to get the authentic savors of a Himalayan trekking. Situated in the heart of Hunza Valley, Rush Lake is one of the most coveted destinations among international tourists, especially among adventure lovers.

To trek to the Rush Lake, you will find yourself drifting through a not so dangerous glacier, lush green pastures and meadows, and beautiful fields. One factor that determines why this destination is popular among trekkers is that you get amazing, panoramic views of the surrounding mountains from this high point.

Except for crossing the glacier, the trek to Rush Lake is mostly easy and modest. We recommend this trek for even the first time adventurers. The good news is that you will stumble upon a lush green valley on the way where you will get to see large flocks of cattle being grazed by their herders. In simple terms, you will experience a completely organic lifestyle during your trek to Rush Lake.

The Rush Lake is the trekkers’ ultimate reward with all its beauty and sparkles. Once you reach your destination, you will feel excited, full of energy and interested in exploring the surrounding areas. Another reward: you will get picturesque views of the beautiful, 5098 meters Rush Peak.
