Haseeb Saeed is a photographer, professional quadcopter operator and founder of Aerovision from Karachi, Pakistan. Sit back and enjoy and he takes you to this jaw dropping journey of Hunza valley through a spectacular footage captured using DJI Phantom quatcopter. Did you ever experience The Hunza Valley like this before? We believe you didn’t!
I probably shouldn’t say this but Pakistan certainly took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting anything half as handsome as what it turned out to be. The Northern Areas of Pakistan, specifically Gilgit-Baltistan, are majestic. If you happen to visit Gilgit-Baltistan, you could easily compare it to Switzerland we often gawk at during Yash Chopra movie sessions.
The contemporary society of Gilgit is undergoing an existential crisis begotten by drastic changes and ruptures caused by the forces of modernisation. For the last four decades it has been exposed to a medley of forces which are exogenous, but which have given birth to trends endogenous to the society. These changes have enabled people to get rid of a few institutions and actors that were impediments to progress.
