Hunza is the last district of Pakistan bordering China and the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan in the chain of the Karakorum. Before 1974, Hunza was a princely state. The heritage left by the Mirs (rulers) of Hunza are still visible through the forts in Karimabad and Aliabad.
I propose you to join us Pakistan to discover the famous and the less famous of Hunza district. As our team is from this region, you will be able to understand the Wakhi culture, enjoy their healthy food, discover villages where tourists don’t often go, discover some community-based systems that you probably don’t expect and – the most important for us – travel in a peaceful and safe environment.
