Hushe Valley, Baltistan, Pakistan

Hushe Valley is located in the Khaplu District of Baltistan. Hushe valley is still the gateway to adventurous treks, most of which lead to the north side of Shyok River. The area is the historic base of many voyages of exploration and expeditions to the mountains in this region of Karakoram. G.T. Vigne, after whom one of the glaciers south of Concordia is named, had ascended the Saltoro valley from Khaplu in 1838 in his search for Saltoro Pass. Some 70 years later Great Tom Longstaff, accompained By Arthur Neve and A.N. Slingsby, repeated the journey and found the pass at the head of Bilafond Glacier, they then crossed and descends to the Siachen Glacier.

Hushe is starting point to many famous mountains, like Masherbrum, K-6, Laila Peak, and famous Gondogoro la..

Hushe village consists of few shops, huts and camping sites, and simple accommodation for a night's stay are available. Porters can also be hired.
