Defiying Time ... The Baltit Fort. Eleventh-century Baltit Fort, located 2800 m to the summits of the Himalayas, was built at the time, enemies and withstands frequent earthquakes. Until 1950, the fort was the residence of the Mirs of Hunza, but was then left to perish. The recent restoration, proposed by the Aga Khan Trust has carefully respecting the original construction techniques. Although rain is rare in the Hunza valley is irrigated by an ingenious system of canals fed by ancient glaciers
HUNZA NAGAR VALLEY WONDERFUL DREAMS AND FAIRY RELATION:
Hunza is the northernmost part of a region known as the northern areas of Pakistan. It's a real life green paradise.
For many centuries, it provides the quickest access to Swat and Gandhara (in modern northern Pakistan) for a person on foot. The route was to cross to the baggage animals could only through human carriers, and then only with permission of the local population.
Travel to the Valley from the south, Hunza is the land to the left, and Nagar to the right of the river. They traditionally have been separate principalities.
Of Hunza are spectacular views of the beautiful and wonderful 7788 m (25,551 ft) Rakaposhi.

The famous Karakoram Highway crosses Hunza, connecting Pakistan to China via the Khunjerab Pass.
Hunza has three parts, but not administratively ethnically divided Gojal, mainly populated by Wakhi speakers, Central, and Shinaki with Brushaski speaking people, the Shina-speaking people. Brushaski is understood throughout Hunza.
Until 1974 Hunza was a princely state with its capital located at Baltit (also known as Karimabad). It is now ruled directly from Islamabad through the administration based in Gilgit, the regional capital of Gilgit Baltistan-.
Hunza was an independent principality for 900 years. There is a common missbelief that Hunza was under the rule of the Maharajas of Kashmir, but it never was. The British not for control of the neighboring valley of Hunza and Nagar to get to 1889.
HISTORICAL AND BEATIFUL ALTIT FORT...HUNZA VALLEY PAKISTAN:
Altit fort is situated in the village of Altit about three kilometers from Karimbabd Hunza. It has been built on a sheer rock cliff that falls 300 meters (1,000 feet) into the Indus river. The fort is a 100 years older than the Baltit Fort and wears at one time inhabited by the ruling family.
Today there is a museum built within the Fort for the tourist. A trip to the Baltit & Altit is must while your tour to Hunza Valley.

HEAVENLY HUNZA NAGAR VALLEY:

The visitors to Hunza are overwhelmed by the rugged charm, the fragrant breeze singing through graceful poplar trees and the velvet-like green carpet of wheet fields, set against the background of snow-covered mountains.
Situated at an elevation of 2,438 meters, Hunza Valley's tourist season is from May to October. The temperature in May is maximum 27oC and minimum 14oC. The October temperatures are: maximum 10oC and minimum 0oC.
Most of the people of Hunza are Islamili Muslims, followers of Aga Khan. The local language is Brushuski. Urdu and English are also understood by most of the people.
Karimabad, the capital of Hunza, offers an awe-inspiring view of Rakaposhi (7,788 meters). The snows of Rakaposhi glitter in the moonlight, producing an atmosphere at once ethereal and sublime.
The fairy-tale like castle of Baltit, above Karimabad, is a Hanza landmark built about 600 years ago. Stilted on massive legs, its wooden bay windows look out over the valley. Originally, it was used the resistance of the Mirs (the title of the former rulers) of Hunza.
This valley is composed of terraced ridges running from the high pastures down to the river, with extensive irrigation channels bringing meltwater from the glaciers to the terraced fields and villages. A wide variety of crops are grown here; including potatoes, barley, wheat, and vegetables - along with apricots, apples, cherries, almonds, and other fruit/nut crops. We hiked the valley during the apricot tree bloom, a beautiful time of spring of planting and blossoms.This area has been easily accessible since in1986 when the Karakoram Highway was completed, running through the Khunjerab Pass and into China. This has opened the valley to increasing tourist visits and the social transformation that occurs along with this. Evidence of this transformation is found throughout the central valley, though away from the highway the valley is more primitive.

This valley full of green fields and apricot trees looks like paradise . Friendly people greeting you everywhere. The women do not wear veils. Most people belong to the Islamic sect of Ismaelits. There are many schools, also some specially for girls.
BIRD’S EYE VIEW ON KARIMABAD (HUNZA NAGAR VALLEY):
When you stand on the terrace of the Baltit Fort in Karimabad, it is almost impossible to stop looking around to those magnificent high mountains.
But stop looking up, you must also look down, because from the terrace of the Baltit Fort you also have a splendid bird's eye view on the houses of the village Karimabad.

Humm WHAT YOU DO IN HUNZA NAGAR VALLEY:

Humm...What you do in a magical and wonderful place like Hunza Nagar?;Its a clear guess.
You can see the beautiful sites of Hunza,like the fort.THey are so many that I will need one hour to describe them.So I will just write that you can do every thing because its Hunza.
A traveler can see Hunza,see the beautiful river,climb mountains and offcourse see the beautiful Rakaposhi peak.
YOU MUST GO NOTHERN AREA SOECIALLY HUNZA NAGAR VALLEY :
You must go north to Karimabad, the capital of Hunza. It is a storybook place: quiet, laid-back, and splendidly set with a mountain locals call 'Ladyfinger' behind it and Rakaposhi facing it. It is one of the world's most beautiful spots, in my view.

Wonderful TRAVEL GUIDE OF PAKISTAN

Pakistan is situated in the western part of India and China while Iran and Afghanistan share their border with Pakistan on the west side. Pakistan, although a very peaceful and very friendly nation has been hit very hard by the infamous war on terrorism by the countries that have always envied the landscape and blessing of the country. The local media war against terrorist leaders have now destroyed peace and quiet in some areas of Pakistan in a game that no one understands. This game is not an old one similar games (Gilgit game, great game) was played on this earth many years ago of similar powers.
This rural Pakistan (the pure land), be it called Pakistan or be it (Sapta Sindu the real India) has probably been the most coveted land in history. From King Darius of Persia, Alexander of Macedonia and many others, marched here in search of that country. There have been many cultural changes in this land.
Today India can boast of being "India of the past" while it was known as Deserta Incognita (Un Known Desert) in the past. Pakistan is the real ancient India, the world would come to see. It is here, Moen Jo Daro of the Indus civilization is that it is here that the mighty Indus river runs, this here, where Buddhism was developed, this is the sanskrit was born, and this is where the Alexander came.
The spectacular views of the mountains, the green plans, colorful deserts and the mighty Indus River are just a few things that this country has been blessed with. We are also blessed with the oldest story in the world. When we look at civilizations as Egypt, Mesopotamia and others, our Indus civilizations look too highly developed and well planned. We are the first urban civilization, where urban planning existed. We are the people who had binary system of weights and the most accurate a 5000 yes 5000 years ago.
Today people talk about taxes and health and organic food and saving nature we have had these thoughts in 2500 BC we had a tax system, democracy and even a system that was most eco-friendly and well aware of nature and had to protect it.
Today when I buy a burger in a so-called developed countries it is wrapped in paper-plastic and foil, trash weighs more than the burger comes to Pakistan, where when I buy a burger my friendly burger cooks it right in front of me, and hand the to me in the most common format with no paper not plastic and no trash.
Pakistan is a paradise, and no super power can destroy it. We are facing a time when people are talking all sorts of sick things about us, but it is only us who see that Pakistan still stands out and boasts of being the most beautiful and most wonderful country in the world.
Today some countries are building the largest shopping malls, high towers and what they do not destroy nature and produce unsightly structures that do nothing but hurt our land, those countries build mountains as K2 can lead to a river so powerful and so legendary as the river Indus.
This is an open invitation for each visit Pakistan does not listen to the media does not listen to warnings the country is full of friendly people flora and fauna. Nature smiles here and the sun bear its first celebration here in Pakistan.

Travel Guide OF Pakistan

Pakistan encapsulates great diversity, from hidden bazaars in the narrow streets of Rawalpindi to architecture that rivals the Taj Mahal in Lahore. It is a land enriched by friendly people and magnificent landscapes. Opportunity for adventure is as high as its great mountain ranges, with watersports, mountaineering and trekking all popular and rewarding activities.

Coupled with this is a profound sense of cultural concoction, Pakistan once being home to several ancient civilisations, and witness to the rise and fall of dynasties.

In ancient times, the area that now comprises Pakistan marked the farthest reaches of the conquests of Alexander the Great. It was also the home of Buddhist Ghandaran culture. It was the independence of India in 1947 that catalysed Pakistan's nationhood. Under pressure from Indian Muslims, the British created a separate Muslim state. Originally, it consisted of two parts, East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) and West Pakistan (now a single unitary state).

Following military rule and civil war, Bangladesh became independent, truncating Pakistan. Today, the long-running Indo-Pakistan conflict continues, with the status of Kashmir at its heart. Although it has a majority Muslim population, Kashmir became part of India in 1947. Pakistan's landscape is as fractured and unsettled as its history.
