The Hunza Valley is without a doubt one of the most beautiful mountain areas in Pakistan. The river has broken through the main ridge of Karakoram, so the views from the valley on the glacier and the high peaks are absolutely breathtaking. In addition to difficult treks and day trips, you will also find comfortable walks with amazing views directly from the local towns.
