Women in Pakistan’s northern Hunza valley are breaking taboos and training for jobs traditionally done by men, including as carpenters and climbing guides on the Himalayan & Karakoram peaks.
A group of young girls sit on a carpeted floor listening as their teacher writes on a whiteboard, preparing his students for the rigours of climbing some of the world’s highest peaks.
Without any uncertainty, a fact have been derived that Hunza is nothing but a heaven on earth which makes this God’s green earth beautiful. The Hunza valley has worth watching lovely sights which come as the greatest amusement for the tourists.
Professional groups of musicians, musical instrument makers, blacksmiths and metalworkers are losing their language because of the stigma attached to it.

The Hunza Valley is one of my favorite places on earth. The mountains are mysterious and almost mystical. I like going there in August or September to eat fresh apricots just harvested, drink the spring Hunza water from the glacier, taste the Tumoro tea to heal my body and soul. And above all sharing moments with the amazing Hunza people.
Across the Hunza river near the border between China and Pakistan, there lies a series of towns known as the ‘oasis of youth’, and for more than one reason: people here live on average around 120 years old, rarely get sick and appearance is invariably young.
The Hon pass in The Hunza Valley has recently became a great place for both local and foreign adventure lovers. The view of the valleys of Hunza and Nagar, Ultar Peak, Lady Finger (Bublimuting), Rakaposhi, Diran Peak, Golden Peak (Spantik Peak) and other peaks from this place is truly spectacular.
This is a bit out of chronological order, but whilst in Northen Pakistan, I dragged myself away from Gilgit long enough to visit Karimabad in the Hunza Valley.
