Altitude:          5098m
Zone:               Open
Duration:         12 Days
Best Time:        June - October

Rash Peak remains as one of the highlights of the hisper trekking region from where one is able to have a distant glimpse of K2 on a fine day. Following the fast running streams since Hoper to Rash Lake one follows the ridge behind the lake that offers superb views down into the Hisper Gorge and panorama of Golden Peak, Malubiting, Miar, all of Hunza with Ultar and Passu peaks, all of Nagar and the mountains to the north of the Hisper. With some luck with weather one can have views of K2, Broad Peak and G-IV. Nowhere else in the Karakorum can one get such magnificent views on such a short trek.
