Hunza valley is a magnificent and awesome territory of Pakistan located in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan.
Hunza was formerly a princely state, and one of the most loyal vassals to the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir. Colors of Hunza are really incredible.
The Hunza is situated at an elevation of about 900 metres (3,000 ft). For many centuries, Hunza has provided the quickest access to Swat and Gandhara for a person travelling on foot.
Karimabad, the capital of Hunza, offers an awe-inspiring view of Rakaposhi (7,788 meters). The snows of Rakaposhi glitter in the moonlight, producing an atmosphere at once ethereal and sublime.
Ganish is the oldest and first settlement on the ancient Silk Road in Hunza, and is the site of various ancient watch towers, traditional mosques, religious centers,and a reservoir. Ganish is situated in central Hunza, 90 km and 2½ hours traveling time from Gilgit.
The valley is famous for its beauty and the people of Hunza are noted for their friendliness and hospitality. The literacy rate of the Hunza valley is believed to be more than 90%. Hunza has been described as a “role model” for Pakistan in terms of its high literacy rate and school enrolment figures.
Duikar is a charming hamlet above the village of Altit. One of the main attractions of Duikar is the viewpoint (2900 m), a 5 minute climb up behind the Eagle’s Nest Hotel. This gives you one of the best views during sunrise and sunset, in particular at full-moon.
Several high peaks rise above 6,000 metres (20,000 ft) the Hunza valley. The valley provides spectacular views of some of the most beautiful and magnificent mountains of the world.
Baltit Fort is situated in the valley of Hunza in Pakistan. Erected on top of a hill it overlooks the whole valley. The fort was built some 600 years ago. It is entirely made of stones, supported by timber beams and plastered over with sun-dried mud.
We hope you like these magnificent and awesome colors of Hunza.
