    Patundas, on the ridge between the Passu and Batura glaciers, is a summer pasture used by Ghulkin villagers with a cluster of huts and livestock pens. The views from Patundas are spectacular in all directions. The rapid elevation gain of 1700m makes the previous acclimatization necessary.The area is depicted by the Deutschen Alpenverein (DAV) 1:00,000 topographic map Hunza-Karakoram. If you’re using the Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research 1:250,000 orographical map Karakoram (Sheet 1), however, note that Luzhdur is labeled as Lazhdar and Mulungeen as Mulung Hil. The trail marked on the Passu Glacier’s north side between Passu and Luzhdur no longer exists, due to glacial changes. The route shown along the glacier’s north margin between Yunz and Patundas is exposed, tricky and not recommended.A guide who knows the current route across the glacier is necessary. Patundas is the property of Ghulkin villagers, who have exclusive portering rights. When staying in Passu, organize a guide or porters by sending a message a day in advance to Ghulkin with any Ghulkin driver, or ask the owner of the Al-Rahim Hotel along the KKH, just north of Gulmit, to have a guide and/or porters meet you at your hotel. You can also organize this from Borit La
