Most Popular Destinations and Attractions to Visit in Hunza Valley

Some famous tourist places to visit in Hunza are:

Hunza Valley

Hunza Valley is located in the Gilgit Baltistan province of Pakistan. Hunza is one of the 14 districts of GB neighboring Ghizer, Shigar, and Nagar districts. Hunza is blessed with some sky-kissing heavenly mountains, beautiful lakes, rivers, glaciers, rich history, adventure spots, and amazing people. Hunza Valley shares international borders with China through Khunjerab Pass and Afghanistan through Irshad Pass in Lugpar Valley. The history of Hunza possibly dates back to the era of Alexander the Great, but there are no clear pieces of evidence. Some also relate Hunza to the Huns or Mangols.

Karakoram Highway (KKH)

Karakoram Highway (KKH) was built by the governments of Pakistan and China to represent good relations between the two countries. It is around 1300 km long in Pakistan and crosses through the Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Gilgit Baltistan in Pakistan and enters China at Khunjerab Pass on the Pak-China border. This highway is also known as National Highway 35 (or N-35) and becomes China National Highway 314 as it enters China. It is a part of the project of China Pakistan Economic Corridor CPEC. It is considered to be the 8th wonder of the world. KKH is a complete package for nature lovers. It offers glimpses of mountains, lakes, rivers, glaciers, cities, villages, agricultural life, and much more.

Altit Fort

Altit Fort is built on a gigantic rock in the old town of Altit in Hunza Valley for the Rulers of Hunza (Mirs) Valley. It is a nearly 1100-year-old fort, one of the oldest structures in Gilgit Baltistan. Mirs of Hunza initially lived in the Altit Fort for almost three centuries. Later, they moved to the newly constructed Baltit Fort. Altit Town has been the residence of people from Central Asia, China, and the surrounding areas in different eras. It is believed that Alexander The Great came here with his soldiers back in time. This fort was donated to the Baltistan Heritage Trust by the Mirs, and the trust restored it to its current state with the help of the Agha Khan Trust. It is now open to tourists. Guides are there to give a complete tour of the fort and a brief idea of its history and the region. A small cafe at the foothills of Altit Fort serves traditional food and is run by local women of Hunza Valley known as the Kha Basi Café.

Baltit Fort

Baltit Fort is an almost 700-800-year-old fort in the Karimabad Village of Hunza Valley. It is a three-story building structure that resembles the Tibetan construction style. This fort became the residence of Mirs Hunza after they left the Altit Fort. It was built at a higher location as a watchtower over the Silk Route to control trade and protect the kingdom from predators or attacks. Baltit Fort gives an amazing view of Hunza Valley and the surrounding mountains. The Mir of Hunza left the old fort in 1945 and donated it to the Baltit Heritage Trust. A new residence was built downhill from Karimabad. The fort began to fall apart due to negligence. Later, with the help of the Agha Khan Trust, these forts were restored to their original state. Now, it is well preserved and open for tourists to visit. Baltit Fort is included in the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Attabad Lake

Attabad Lake is a 21 km long glacial lake formed in 2010 due to an earthquake in the area. The quake triggered a massive landslide from the nearby mountains. It was like an entire mountain fell on the villages, killing around 20 people and affecting thousands. This landslide blocked the flow of the Hunza River for over five months, which took the form of a dam submerging towns like Attabad, Shishkat, Ayeenabad, Gulkin, and Gulmit, forming the Attabad Lake. This newly formed lake blocked a massive chunk of Karakoram Highway, putting people's lives on halt in the upper parts of Hunza. People started using boats temporarily for mobility on the immersed part of KKH. But this momentary solution couldn't continue for longer. This part of the road was rebuilt, which created a wave of possibilities for the local people of Hunza, and Attabad Lake emerged as one of the most famous tourist destinations worldwide.

Attabad Tunnels

With the formation of Attabad Lake and the destruction of a huge chunk of the Karakoram Highway, an essential trade route between Pakistan and China, a proper solution was needed to improve this situation. In July 2021, the Government of Pakistan, with the help of China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), initiated the project to renovate a 24 km patch of Karakoram Highway damaged by the earthquake in 2010, at a higher location. In September 2015, Attabad Tunnels were constructed as a renovation project. This project consisted of five tunnels with a distance of 7.12 km and two bridges.

Khunjerab Pass

Khunjerab Pass is a mountain pass located on the Karakoram Highway. This pass is at the border between Pakistan and China in the Gilgit Baltistan province of Pakistan. It is the highest-paved international crossing at an elevation of 4693 meters. It is also the highest point on KKH. Khunjerab Pass also has the highest ATM in the world. It connects Cina's Xinjiang province with Gilgit Baltistan. This border is used for trade, travel, and tourism purposes. Being at a high elevation, it receives a significant amount of snowfall, making it inaccessible during winter. Khunjerab Pass is included in the Khunjerab National Park. This National Park starts from Sost Town and goes to the border. During summer, if you are lucky enough, you can witness wild Yaks, Himalayan Markhor, and Ibex.

Hussaini Suspension Bridge

Hussaini Suspension Bridge has been used to connect Hussaini Village in Hunza Valley with the Karakoram Highway for centuries. It crosses over the Hunza River. This bridge is almost 500 feet long, spreading over the river like a long, thin rope. This bridge is famous for its perilous pathway, as the gaps between each plank of wood used to put our feet on are too much that it almost gives mini heart attacks while crossing it. This bridge was recently renovated, but the gap between the bridge’s planks of wood is still the same. If you are an adventure tourist, you must visit this once in a lifetime.

Eagle’s Nest Duiker

Duiker is the highest village in Hunza Valley at 10,000 feet above sea level. It offers an aerial panoramic view of Hunza Valley, Nagar, Rakaposhi Peak, Golden Peak, Ultar Peak, Diran Peak, Lady Finger Peak, and a total of 11 peaks. This place has a rock that naturally resembles an Eagle bird; thus, this point is known as the Eagle's Nest. It can be accessed using small cars on a 6 km steep metalled road and is around 15 to 20 minutes from Karimabad Village. You can also hike to the top from the Altit Fort. It will take you almost 1-1.5 hours. To get the most out of Eagle's Nest Point, visit it at sunset or sunrise.

Karimabad Bazar Hunza

Karimabad Bazar Hunza is the gem in Karimabad town of Hunza Valley. It is undoubtedly the best tourist destination in Hunza Valley if you want to meet locals, enjoy their local food, witness their culture through their artifacts, or to buy any souvenirs. In Karimabad Bazaar, the local shops sell antique and handmade artifacts, dry fruits, traditional dresses, shawls, handbags, shoes, and rare and expensive gems.

Passu Village is located in the foothills of Passu Cones on the Karakoram Highway, offering a panoramic view of these mountains. Passu Village is one of the most popular destinations in Hunza Valley for domestic and international tourists. This place is relatively peaceful as compared to Karimabad or Aliabad.

It is almost 0.5 km long, spread over 1.5 sq km, and joins the Batura Glacier. One can reach the glacier from Borith Lake, starting from the zero point.
