James Hodson, Jacques Rehman and Sardar Ahmed Durrani take an adventure of a life time to the Hunza Valley, Pakistan. They share spectacular scenery from valleys of Hunza, Attabad Lake, Ultar meadows, Duikar and Hon Pass.

Remember Naveed Khan, the guy who brought Brandon Stanton to Pakistan? He has been arranging tours to Hunza and other regions of Gilgit-Baltistan through his initiative Hunza on Foot.

National Geographic phtograohy Matthieu Paley describes his experience visiting the Hunza Valley and meeting Hunzokutz – the people of Hunza.
Though some of the inhabitants of the villages and small towns here still live in stone and mud houses, you don’t see any poor people in the streets of Gojal. Of course you don’t see any obviously rich people either. Those who have money tend to spend it on the betterment of the community, and evidence of this can perhaps be found in the close-to-zero illiteracy rate among the new generation. Even the youngest children here grow up speaking two to three languages.
A video dedicated to all of those who believed in my project and collaborated with me with joy and passion. You all gave me the strength to believe in this dream.
Romantic-movie fanatics might have better idea how exhilarating the movie gets when two true lovers are separated by the manacles of boundaries. The love story of Sher Ali from the Hunza valley is in no way lesser than a Bollywood movie that is filled with all the thrills of ups and downs. Lucky enough for Sher Ali and his admirer from India, the story has a happy ending; something we have been seeing in most of the desi movies for decades.
Packing up his underwater gear, Matthieu Paley says goodbye to the sea-dwelling Bajau.
