Hispar Pass (or Hispar La) (el. 5,128 m/16,824 ft) is a high-altitude, non-technical mountain pass in the Karakoram Range in Pakistan.[1]

At the pass, the Biafo Glacier (63 km long) and Hispar Glacier (49 km long) meet to form the world's longest glacial traverse outside of the polar regions, 100 kilometers in length.
