So in the first week of July, the misses and I decided to take a five-day break in Karimabad, Hunza.
For those who are not familiar, Hunza is a valley, comprising on many small villages, in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of the Karakorum mountains in Pakistan. It is inhabited by the most friendly people and surrounded by the most majestic mountains and breathtaking scenery. There are many treks of all lengths and difficulty which have their starting point in Hunza, and for the slightly less adventurous there's comfortable accommodation and awesome ethenic food.
Regardless to say, Hunza is a great place to vacation within Pakistan, away from all the stresses of city life.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip which will give you an idea of what you are in for shall you decide to take a trip to Hunza - which i hope will be soon.
