Hunza is situated in the extreme northern part of Pakistan bordering with the Xinjiang region of China.

Beyond its iconic glaciers, fertile apricot farms, and turquoise lakes, the region is also rich in cultural heritage. Hunza valley tour gives you the opportunity to explore the local rich culture and customs, tase the local food and see history come to life in front of your eyes. These elements will transform you from a tourist into a great traveller.

If you are looking closely at this itinerary you are a serious traveler. You may know already that Pakistan’s tourism is on the upswing. You may also ask about safety since Pakistan makes headlines for terrorist attacks (much like France or Britain or Spain) and negative press from the Western world. There are areas of Pakistan that we would not venture into but our itinerary covers quite a different area: the North-West. Here people are extremely hospitable.
