On GIS Day (19 November 2008), The first Image and thematic Map of Passu in Wakhi Script is published in Wakhi Blog for the interest of viewers, linguists, travelers, and tourists, These map are published for the test only, we are working on a very detail map of Gojal with all local names in Wakhi script, Inshallah with the collaboration of WTCA, MASGIS, Gojal Local Council and other NGOs, we will publish the first Wakhi Map of Gojal in coming year in 2009. We need your contribution and good suggestions. We will conduct a research based survey in Gojal to find out all the local names of different valleys and villages and mapped them on their exact location (geographic location) with all details and phtographs of the physical, cultural sites, hotels, shops etc. So many location original names are changed and so many are reading and writing wrongly, i.e. Khunzhrav to Khunzhrab.

Passu has been one of the most visited regions of Gojal valley. Passu is famous because it is home of the Batura Glacier. Adding more to the beauty of Passu, standing at the Northern end of the village, is Mount Tupopdon. Inspired by its unique structural attributes tourists have promoted the peak by giving it new names. Some call it “Passu Cones” and others “Passu Cathedral”. Mount Tupopdon is the most photographed peak of the region.

Dear brother,
The efforts you put in, reveals that a comprehensive map of Tehsil Gojal is a must to clear that how much areas are in the domain of upper Hunza and even how much areas were in the state of Hunza. As in history two times areas demarcation in between China and Hunza state tended the two empire’s rulers to resolve the disputs. But unfortunatly the Chinies empire swallowed 2500 sk kilometer areas in 1935 and 1963 accords. In replacement of Raskum in the North East Mir Nazim Khan accomodated the Hunzukurts in Oshkhandass. But non of the land owner is in the replacement. Meant the British and poor Pakistani ruler freely gifted our land up to Davdor in the North and Raskum in the North East to China.
