It was a mind blowing experince!. I'll never forget the the wonderful montain Rakaposhi. I would love to get back to Pakistan and Gilgit Baltistan
The Hunza valley is amazing with all the mountains, villages, glaciers, landscape and nature. A perfect area for a road trip, but also trekking and hiking is great.
Absolutely loved visiting Gilgit Baltistan - stunning views, local people are very friendly and very welcoming. I was astounded by the mountain view from my hotel room.
It has been so fun, seeing rakaposhi from hunza has been my best of travel experiences in pakistan. Beautiful place and fabulous peopleb dont miss. A must go place if you love nature.
I first visited Gilgit Balistan in 2006 to reach the summit of Haigutum East. Amazing glaciers and beautiful white rivers of ice descending from some of the highest mountains in the Karakoram.
