Passu, the tehsil Headquarter of Gojal, is a small
village beside the Khunjrab river, around 15 kilometer, beside the Karakoram
Highway Northern Area of Pakistan. The people are Wakhi and speak the Wakhi
Language. Passu is roughly halfway between Hunza valley and the border with
Passu has two beautiful glaciers, known as Passu glacier and Batura
glacier.. It also has very nice area for Trekking. Passu, provide comfortable
and safe camping site to tourists. It is an excellent place to stop by
for a while for shopping and to make a short hike. .
In 5 KM walk from Passu, the sight scenes are breathtaking. There is a
bridge over Hunza River that you can cross to goto the other side of the
river, but that bridge is rather in a bad shape. The trail trek you find
that is easy, but not very wide. If you have fear of heights and
the water flow in the Hunza River is NOT too high, you might prefer walking
in the river bed to cross it.
If you feel like trekking you may cross the Hunza River and visit some of
the villages located on the other side of the river.
