Overview

Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. The Hunza is situated north/west of the Hunza River, at an elevation of around 2,500 meters (8,200 ft). The territory of Hunza is about 7,900 square kilometers (3,100 sq mi). Aliabad is the main town while Baltit is a popular tourist destination because of the spectacular scenery of the surrounding mountains like Ultar Sar, Rakaposhi, Bojahagur Duanasir II, Ghenta Peak, Hunza Peak, Passu Peak, Diran Peak and Bublimotin (Ladyfinger Peak), all 6,000 meters (19,685 ft) or higher.

Naltar is a valley near Hunza, in the Gilgit–Baltistan province of Pakistan situated 40 km from Gilgit. It has an internationally recognized ski resort that attracts ski professionals from around the globe. The road from Gilgit to Naltar offers a wonder of treats for the eyes from the dusty brown of the mountains flawlessly balanced by the icy blue stream flowing in its feet, with snow-capped mountains drawing closer and closer, increasing one’s anticipation of what is to come. Passing through quaint local settlements clustered in the valley, where rosy-cheeked and starry-eyed children merrily wave as you pass by. One can enjoy sights such as luscious meadows, crystal blue streams, and milky clouds with chilly breezes. Naltar along with its magnificent mountain scenery is home to a wide range of wildlife such as the Markor, Snow Leopards, Brown Bears, Grey Wolves, Red foxes, Beech Marten, and the Leopard cat.

A miracle of stillness, epitome of perfect shades of blue, a beauty in tragedy, Attabad lake is Pakistan's largest artificial lake created by a severe landslide in Attabad Village, Gojal valley back in 2010. Bluest of all, this lake connects the glorious Hunza valley to the Serene Passu in Gojal valley. The sangfroid 45 minutes boat ride in the lake to the nirvana on the other end is an unforgettable experience. As the boat meanders through the turquoise colors lake lapped by high rugged colossal mountains the journey seems to arrest in your heart forever where every scene tends to have multiple makeovers having an instant display of splendor. During the summer the warm climate soothes the soul and the glistening sunshine shines onto the sparkling still water where the only ripples created are because of the boat. Emotions intensified when you come across one of the wonders of the majestic Passu Cathedrals rise dramatically behind the fluttering clouds. In winters even you can walk over the frozen 10 km pathway of Attabad lake.

Khunjerab pass (elevation 4,693 meters or 15,397 feet) is a high mountain pass in the Karakoram Mountains in a strategic position on the northern border of Pakistan's Gilgit–Baltistan Hunza - Nagar District on the southwest border of the Xinjiang region of China. Its name is derived from Wakhi 'Khun' means Home and 'Jerav' means spring water/water falling.
