Every traveller must fall in love with the area at first sight. There is nothing better than to get to Karimabad (2420 m asl), the heart of the Hunza valley, after a difficult and long trek, sit on the terrace of one of the small hotels, pluck ripe apricots directly from the tree and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets at the local mountain queen – Rakaposhi (7788 m asl). Hunza river broke here through the ridge of the mighty Karakoram, which is more than five kilometers higher, so there are plenty of dramatic views in all directions. In addition, it is a valley with ancient history and many monuments – especially massive castles standing on the river promontories.
