Bautra Glacier presents one of the most fascinating glacier treks in Pakistan. This trip is a fascinating experience of an easy stroll along with a flower-strewn gully between the lateral moraine of Battura Glacier and the mountains. It provides breathtaking views of high Peaks like Ultar (7388), Shispare (7611m), Passu peak (7284m), Karun Koh (7164m), and others in the Shimshal region. From Fatimahil you can have an unforgettable view of the formidable North face of Battura massif. After halfway between Kukhil and Guchsum is the wide plateau of Shelmin where the Urthum brook flows from the North. This is much tougher route than Kilik or Mintaka but not a technical one. The scenery will simply sweep you off your feet This trek is especially recommended for those who intend to do short walks for one to five days.
This trek is especially recommended for those who intend to do short walks for one to five days. It has varieties for those as well who take interest in long treks of up to ten days. However, a round trip starting at Borit Lake and concludes at Batura near Passu is considered a rewarding walk. Most parts of this trek are easy with wild followers and great summer pastures. The only difficult part is grossing glacier. The panoramic views of Batura (7785 meters), Passu (7284 meters) &Shishper Peak (7611 meters) is superb. You will meet very friendly Wakhi people especially women with their cattle in summer pastures who offer yogurt, butter milk & fresh milk etc. to all visitors
