Rush Lake, situated in Gilgit Baltistan near Rush Phari Peak in Pakistan at an altitude of 5,098 meters (16,726 feet), stands as one of the world’s largest alpine lakes, reaching 4,694 meters. Nestled in the Nagar Valley, approximately 15 kilometers north of Miar Peak and Spantik (Golden Peak), Rush Lake provides a gateway to captivating natural beauty.
Access to Rush Lake and Rush Peak is possible through Nagar and Hopar, traversing the Hopar Glacier (Bualtar Glacier) and Miar Glacier that emanate from the peaks of Miar and Phuparash. The trek to the lake offers breathtaking views of Spantik, Malubiting, Miar Peak, Phuparash Peak, and Ultar Sar.
Renowned as one of the most popular treks, the journey provides a perfect introduction to trekking with enduring excitement. Navigating glaciers and passing through villages, you’ll witness the authentic life of those dwelling at the foothills of mighty glaciers. The trail winds along irrigated terraced fields, offering spectacular views of the formidable Karakoram Mountains, culminating at the Rush Peak summit (5,098 meters). The convergence of the Barpu and Bualter glaciers at Rush Lake holds significance, with local legends narrating stories about the nature of these glaciers, portraying them as male and female, and describing their meetings and the birth of new glaciers.
