Qaafila Adventures is one of the most specialized treks in Pakistan includes Rash Phari Trek in the Karakoram. Rash Phari means sparkling Lake. It is one of the most recommended treks for those who want to have a first time trekking experience with a life long excitement. We walk on glaciers, through villages to a look at the real life of those living at foot steps of mighty glaciers, along the irrigated terraced fields with the impressive view of the mighty Karakoram Mountains from summit of Rush Peak (5,098m). It is the junction of two famous glaciers of Barpu and Bualter. It is interesting that local legends talk about the gender of these glaciers of being male and female and also about their meetings and birth of the new glaciers. Our trek starts at Hoper, a marvelous valley with green fields and fruit orchards which is also famous for its potato seeds which are exported to other parts of Pakistan especially in Gilgit-Baltistan.
