Passu – The Gem of KKH

KKH is also called as the eighth wonder of the world and I would call Passu Village Pakistan, The Gem of KKH. 

Karakoram Highway Hunza Gojal

A lot of people mix Passu Village Pakistan with a German city Passau which is also beautiful but not as picturesque. 

For hundreds of years Silk road was used for trading purposes and at times for invading. After the Indo-Pak partition, Pak China friendship highway was built on this route. We now call it Karakoram Highway in Pakistan (due to its geographical location). Its a 1300 km long highway which starts from from Hasan Abdal and ends at Kashghar, China.

Along the KKH, scenery is changed as we move towards Gilgit. It becomes picturesque as we enter Hunza and we enter into a paradise as we reach Passu.

I had to leave Naltar very early in the morning without breakfast, or I would have missed the only departing jeep. I went off at Aliabad and from there it took me around two hours to reach Passu Village (Thanks to the CPEC project, road condition from Gilgit to Khunjerab is excellent). 

The van dropped me at Passu Village and I checked in at Passu Inn hotel which proved to be a good decision. I stayed there for couple of days. I was hungry and couldn’t turn down the Biryani offer from the hotel Manager. After lunch, I went to see the village, which is quite small but welcoming. Passu Inn is on one side of the KKH and I had to cross the road to enter the village.

I was welcomed by the locals who offered me some mouth watering apricots. In fact, I found that Passu has more superior quality of apricots than other parts of the Hunza Valley.

Glacier Breeze Restaurant

After that I walked along the KKH and went to a restaurant called Glacier Breeze which is built up the hill.  Although it is built few meters above the road but its worth visiting the place.

I would highly recommend Glacier Breeze restaurant on KKH in Passu Village. Firstly, because food served at the restaurant is not only fresh but delicious as well. Secondly, it offers stunning views of the village, KKH and Passu Cathedral.  

Next day, I left for Khunjerab Pass, the highest but very scenic International border. 

Trek to world’s scariest bridge

After coming back from Khunjerab, next day I decided to visit Passu Suspension bridge. Although its an easy trek but one mistake can end the adventure anytime.
I started early in the morning and had my breakfast in Shisper Passu suspension bridge trekView hotel on my way to the suspension bridge, the guy there warned me that its not very easy for the first times but I still decided to go there on my own.
Two Korean guys outside Shisper View asked me if I was also going to see the bridge and we started together. We entered the village from the wrong side and we all kept slipping in the trail until we ended on the ground after few minutes.
As we took wrong route Passu suspension bridge trekand by passed the village, there was no one to guide us. We climbed and ended near the river bank and we had to climb back. After climbing two different directions we finally saw the glimpse of the bridge but it was too far. We found different trails and finally reached there after twenty minutes but I would call it a close encounter.
The bridge itself is very long and scary. I have seen a lot of hanging bridges but I must admit that this one longest and may be scariest of all.

    I think everything said was actually very logical. However,
    what about this? suppose you were to create a killer headline?
    I am not saying your content is not good, however what
    if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention?
    I mean Passu – The Gem of KKH is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a related
    pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    A general contractor will be the person in charge of the renovation and
    demolition of roads, freeways and buildings. Months ahead
    of the decision to market the house is manufactured, the homeowner must
    take a look at their very own property, both inside and outside, through the eyes of the potential buyer.
    In short, retainage, as the practice exists in the construction industry,
    (a) doesn’t function as a to protect owners, general contractors or subcontractors; and (b) diminishes the contractor’s efficient operation by unnecessarily
    tying up capital.
