Hushe is the last village of the Ghangche District of northern Pakistan. It is the highest village in the once extremely remote and impoverished valley. Hushe men began working as cooks and porters for expeditions in the 1960s. Reinhold Messner's cook Rozi Ali, is from Hushe.

Now, the sons of these men have turned wholeheartedly to tourism and the Hushe-pa have developed an excellent reputation as guides, cooks and high-altitude porters.

Hushe villagers are environmentally conscious and work to keep their area nice. Hushe is no longer the poorest of villages, and its popularity as a trekking and climbing destination continues to grow. Abdul Karim of Hushe, famous as Little Karim, who carried 25KG of weight up to 8000m on an expedition on Gasherbrum II, is working with a Spanish team to build a new luxurious hotel in the village, overlooking mighty Masherbrum.

Climbers and trekkers that come all the way from Baltoro Glacier, Concordia (Pakistan) and K-2 via Gondogoro Pass, descend into Hushe village to reach Skardu District, which is an important town of Gilgit-Baltistan. Hushe is heaven for climbers and trekkers. Some of the world's famous rock climbing towers are here. laila Peak, Amin braq ,Fida Braq and Charkusa valley are very famous.
