The village of Passu is located among the towering peaks of the Karakoram mountain range. A peaceful idyll in the very heart of magnificent surrounding mountain scenery: Pointed unclimbed and unclimbale rock peak, ice-demes with sharp fluted ridges; stand like knife blades. The village is surrounded by a huge wall of mountains and is the base of three important valleys: Shimshal, Khurijerab and Batura, as well as the short valley of the Passu Glacier.
