Hunza Tour

20-Aug-2023

Joseph Kaelin A long time ago, shortly after the Karakoram Highway was built, I travelled through the Hunza Valley. I always hoped to come back some day and explore this area more. Fortunately, work took me recently to northern Pakistan and I was able to visit the upper Hunza valley. I trekked to the Passu glacier, Patundas Meadow and the Passu Peak base camp. This was a wonderful trek. The terrain that we crossed was varied, mostly in the arid zone, but sometimes also in the cedars, then finally in the alpine zone. We hiked along glacier moraines, crossed the Passu glacier and hiked the ridge above Patundas Meadows. Everywhere the views were breathtaking. The locals call it Patundas table, because the meadow is flat and provides a true 360 degree panorama. Some preparation is required to visit the area, organising the porters and food. My thanks go to Black Glacier Tours for excellently preparing and carrying out my tour and for making this trip so unforgettable. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pasu+Glacier/@36.4751378,74.6673416,12z/data=!4m8!3m7!1s0x38e8a55bd832f205:0x44b2081e17f913a4!8m2!3d36.4697645!4d74.7732056!9m1!1b1!16zL20vMGQ2N202?authuser=0&entry=ttu Joe Kaelin https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pasu+Glacier/@36.4751378,74.6673416,12z/data=!4m8!3m7!1s0x38e8a55bd832f205:0x44b2081e17f913a4!8m2!3d36.4697645!4d74.7732056!9m1!1b1!16zL20vMGQ2N202?authuser=0&entry=ttu
