The Hunza Valley is a magical place quite different from that of the rest of Pakistan. These are some Hunza Valley pics to show you the beauty of the place.
It’s not just the valley itself but the places just up from the valley like glaciers and mountains that roam just above.
Hunza Valley Pics
Karimabad is the main hub of the Hunza Valley and where most people stay and makes a good base for exploring other parts of the valley.

Rakaposhi is the largest mountain in the Hunza Valley area and looms over it.
It’s a long day hike to get to Rakaposhi Basecamp and back, or camp overnight at the base camp to get closer to this epic mountain.
Passu is the furthest northern end of the Hunza Valley and is known for its famed Passu Cones mountain.
Passu Glacier makes for an excellent day hike.
Apples are one of the main fruits of the Hunza Valley.
The People of Hunza Valley
The Hunza Valley people are friendly and welcoming and are some of the healthiest people in the world. They are strong mountain people.
The Hunza Valley really is an enchanting place and with any visit to northern Pakistan, it should be on your list to visit.
