"Heaven on earth Gojal-Hunza Valley" Gojal's Profile
Batura provides beautiful natural scenery to foreign tourists. It attracts people from all over the world to Hunza valley. Thousands of tourists travel Batura every year, because it is one of the famous longest glaciers of the world. Batura Wall Peaks are more then 7000M high.The middle of this glacier is white and the both sides are black with materiel load. At some places small glaciers have merged with each other and formed medial moraines.
It is a U shape valley. Its alignment is from northwest to southeast, situated on the northwest of the KKH and Passu village. Batura pastures are located on the both sides of Batura Glacier. Green pastures, flora and fauna adds more value to this tourist spot. 4-5 Days trek in this valley makes it memorable for the visitors.
This is Passu Suspension Bridge, After Attabad Landsliding in 2010 the bridge was submerged in the Attabad Lake water and damaged alot, but now locals have repaired it again. so the INDIANA JONE's BRIDGE is again ready for the adventure tourists. This bridge connects Passu to Khuramabad which provides beautiful scenery of Passu Catheadral (Tapopdan Peak), Shisper Peak, Passu Peak, Shutuber Peak, Prigoz Sar, Avdaigar, Zarth sar and majestic surrounding views. Tourist can utilize their rest day at Passu for this day hike.
Passu Peak in the clouds at the starting point of Batura glacier. Trek to Batura valley almost starts from here just alongside the glacier. About 58km long glacier is melting 1.5M/year because of Global Warming which is going to be a matter of concern for the Environmentalists and Eco Tourists who love to visit this place and some scholars are doing research work on the glacier as well. Glacier water flow begins here and joins Hunza river after 1km which further goes to join the mighty Indus River near the Junction of three majestic mountain range (Karakorum , Himalaya, Hindukush ).
A shepherd named Fatima used to live here with her live stock, goats sheep yaks etc; there fore the pasture is now called Fatima Hail (pasture of Fatima) by locals. cone hill looks great here.
Huts and cattle farm are visible here at Fatima hail.
