KARIMABAD, GILGIT, PAKISTAN
from where you are
Hidden in the heart of the Hunza valley, the small town of Karimabad, formerly named Baltit and once the capital of the Hunza region, is probably the most picturesque village in Pakistan’s Northern Area. A sweeping landscape full of vibrant vegetation in warm autumnal hues, overlooked by a spectacular mountain range: the Hunza valley is blessed with beautiful surroundings and stunning views.
