Hunza Valley Pics (The Enchanted Land)

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.

Karimabad

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

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.
