Hunza is a remarkably peaceful and beautiful place situated at an elevation of 2,438 metres, it is situated 112 km of north of Gilgit on the west bank of the Hunza river. Weather remains pleasent from April to Spetember, however winters are extremely cold in hunza. People of hunza are Ismailis and speak Burushaski and are really friendly.Hunza is famous for its handicrafts and precious stones. Hunza Valley’s tourist season is from March to October, however to me anytime spent in Hunza would be a lifetime experience. View of Rakaposhi (7,788 metres) from Karimabad is amazing, 800 years old Baltit fort is another attraction.Tourists in Karimabad also visit duiker, altit to see sunset in evening from there one can see eight different peaks and view from Duiker is just amazing and beautiful.
