HUNZA Valley is renowned for its beauty, and the iconic place has become even more of a fairy-tale with this tradition. The people of Hunza have a reputation for living long lives. The reason behind their long-lasting lives has been attributed to the fresh, unpolluted air and untarnished mountain beauty – and the food they consume. Hunza’s cuisine is typically fresh fruits, half-cooked vegetables, grand dairy products. That, and matlash (butter), which seems to have become the subject of intense interest.
Hunza valley is located in the Gilgit-Baltistan region which is in the extreme northern part that connects China with Pakistan. Gilgit-Baltistan region Biafo Glaciers is the homeland of adventure treks, k2 base camp trek, Concordia trek, and gondogoro la trek.

Hunza was previously a princely state which survived until 1974 and was dissolved by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Its capital was the town of Baltit also known as Karimabad. Tourists visit this valley to take a sight of the two most famous forts known as Altit and Baltit fort. The Altit Fort is the oldest fort in northern areas and it is located in the Altit village. It is built with great architectural design on a rock of a mountain where the Hunza River flows at its back. Baltit Fort is another beautiful fort in the Hunza valley which is built at the top of Karimabad. The popular glaciers in Hunza include the Batura Glacier, Hussaini Glacier, and Passu Glacier. All of these glaciers are situated in Gojal Valley. These glaciers attract thousands of domestic and international tourists every year. Opportunities for hiking are quite immense in the Hunza Valley.
