A hamlet in the Braldu Valley, about 5 Km NE of Baha. Numerous complex granitic pegmatites in the area at both sides of Braldu River with outcrops between 2,500 and 3,500 m.a.s.l. There is a bridge over the Braldu river connecting both banks.
Dassu is the source of some extraordinary aquamarine and topaz specimens, mostly on feldspar.

NOTE: there is also a village of the same name along the Gilgit-Skardu road, bordering the Indus River. This location is sometimes referred to as "Haramosh Dassu".
