Accommodations


BATURA

Batura has been taken from a Brushuski word (Bat-Tur) language of central hunza "Bat" means skin and "Tur" means horns. In ancient times, there were many ibex (mountain goats) which were hunted by snow leopards or killed by avalanche. When Bruskin men came to the area, they found many skins and horns, in and around the glacier, that they said "Bat Tur" . Later on, it became Batur and now a - days Batura. Batura has the following Pasture.

VEZOK- PART

This is the name of a pasture in Batura Valley. "vezok" means ibex in Wakhi language and "Pert" means green slopes. it conveys that idea that there were a lot of ibex on the slpopes.

YASH- PERT

"Yash" means horse and "pert" means green slopes. Perhaps this slope has been used for grazing horses. therefore in Wakhi language it is called "Yash Pert".

FATIMA- HILL

"Fatima" is the name of the daughter of the Prophet Mohammed (Muslim's last prophet) "Hil" means pasture. This pasture provides goats, sheeps, yaks and horses with fodder grass and tree leaves. In this respect, it has been named "Fatima" (Which may be equated with a gentle - giving soul )

KUK-HIL

"Kuk" means spring and "Hill" means pasture. It is interpreted in the sense that the sheep's and goats give much more milk than other pastures in the area (due to the variety of herbs common to the field) The milk they gave resembled a spring.

GUSHESM

This is an abstract word from the Persian " Gul" meaning flowerr and "chashm" meaning eye. " The eye of the floweres" - in this pasture there are many flowers.

Cultural Considerations

Don't ask people to behave in ways or accept values contrary to their own traditions. Tell people what you like about their culture. Be respectful while visiting religious places. When photographing, respect local residents' dignity and right to privacy. You should establish a friendly rapport, ask permission, and get their name and address so you can mail photos back to them. Letting people know you will do so may overcome their reluctance to be photographed and make friends. Photographing women is considered improper throughout northern Pakistan. Respect this sensibility whenever you go. Avoid paying people for taking their photo. This commercializes and cheapens cross-cultural interactions, allowing your economic power to dominate and overwhelm any cultural or personal reluctance to be photographed.

Show respect for local values by dressing conservatively. Tight fitting or revealing dress offends and embarrasses people throughout the Karakoram and Hindukush. Do not wear shorts or Lycra, and men should never go bare-chested in public. Locals may not say anything to foreigners, who then incorrectly assume their indiscreet dress, is all right. However, there are signs posted in the Skardu bazaar and in Karimabad in Hunza asking foreigners to dress discreetly. Loose fitting long pants and long-sleeved shirts are the best choice. Women need to take greater care to wear baggy clothes and cover their legs down to the ankles and arms down to the wrists. Being on vacation is not an excuse for inappropriate behavior! Once, in a village apricot orchard crowded with dozens of boys and girls, a male trekker standing outside his tent stripped down to his underpants in order to change his trousers. His thoughtless behavior managed to offend everyone present.

Avoid public displays of affection. Holding hands, hugging, and kissing are considered private acts, not to be openly and shamelessly displayed. However, public hand holding between men is common as an expression of friendship and rarely has any sexual overtones. 'Holiday romances' with local men harm the image of Western women. Most local men are married and either sees the relationship as a ticket to the West or as validation of the misconception that most Western women are sexually available.

While trekking, nude bathing is also considered vulgar and shameless. Wash your body in your tent, using a washcloth and a basin of water. Washing hair, face, hands, and feet outside is fine; Islam emphasizes personal cleanliness.

Discourage begging and do not give anything to beggars. It is a superficial and negative interaction. Muslims are expected to give part of their income to the needy, and Pakistan has more than its share of needy people. If you want to make a contribution, approach an appropriate person, such as a school headmaster, a community leader, or a representative of a local service organization, and ask how you can best make a donation. Harder to tolerate are children who demand sweets, pens, or rupees because previous tourists handed them out or the children who throw stones at travelers who say no. Gifts are part of Pakistani hospitality, but throwing goodies around indiscriminately for the sake of goodwill paves a rough road for future travelers. Whatever your status in your own country, most people in Pakistan will perceive you as rich, leading to an idealized image of life in the West. Please make an effort to present a more balanced picture of life in the West by showing how earnings are linked to the cost of living.
