Hunza valley is located in Northern Areas of Pakistan and almost 24 hours drive from Islamabad via Karakoram Highway/Silk Route (600km aprox), alternately Babusar Pass at 13600 feet or by Plane.
.
Hunza is named after people of Hunz, Chinese clan who settled in Hunza several hundered years ago. Today, hunza is known for its peace and warm people. It is natural beauty and almost 7 magnificent peaks are visible including Rakaposhi and lady finger from Hunza. Our guide to fort told us their dialect resembles Chinese language.

Finally i was able to visit Hunza on photo tour. (will add more in coming days)
