Walking in the Hunza Valley is an excellent way to appreciate the surrounding natural beauty and the local people. This is a valley in the Karakorum Mountain range with years of romantic but bloody history. High above the Hunza Valley there are apricot orchards, hamlets and terraces and there are excellent walks up to the higher glaciers.
The Hunza is the only way through the Karakoram Mountains and onwards to China via the Indus. One of the best walks in the Hunza is a walk to Ultar Meadow taking around one to three days and reaching Ultar Peak at 7388 metres. Behind it a steep and thin glacier and a high ridge and view point at Hon.
Husaini to Zarabad is another wonderful walk in the Hunza Valley that loops over two hazardous bridges crossing the Hunza River. There are many villages in the valley and walking between them is an excellent way to appreciate local culture although Pakistan is currently not an area for travelling due to terrorist activity. Visitors to the Hunza Valley should have a local guide and listen to advice and intelligence from the villages.
