A journey into the heart of the mountains

Published: October 20, 2015

We often come across beautiful pictures of northern Pakistan, in particular Hunza Valley, which has increasingly become a popular tourist destination. With its spectacular scenery and surrounding mountains, there’s no doubt it is the equivalent of “heaven on earth”.

We take a look at the people of Gojal Valley, which shares a border with Hunza, and who are known to be some of the most friendly people of the country.

    Beautifully captured and truly uncovered the beauty of this wonderful part of Pakistan. Hunza Valley is no doubt the most progressive, with a literacy rate of above 90%, which is the highest in Pakistan. We are looking forward to see more of such amazing photographs from the northern region of Pakistan. Hats off! Recommend
