North Pakistan Tour
With Hunza Valley
Embark on a North Pakistan tour with Original World.
Start with arrival in Islamabad. Onward to Peshawar before heading to the mountains.
Visit several UNESCO World Heritage sites and excellent museums in Islamabad and Peshawar. Appreciate the glorious Mughal architecture.
Visit remote mountain villages in the Hindukush Mountain Range. Travel over the Shandur Pass to Gilgit–Baltistan region and the much renowned Hunza Valley, enveloped in the grand Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges.
The villages are incredibly isolated and built into the cliff side. Some villages are more than 1,000 years old.
Enjoy friendly interaction with various ethnic peoples we encounter in several villages. Soak up the spectacular scenery of surrounding mountains.
There is no trekking or extensive walking. No camping! This is an easy comfortable tour with excellent hotels. Only in Phander the hotel is clean but basic with western facilities.
The drives are relatively short. There are two long drives, 7.5 and 7 hours. These cannot be avoided. The landscapes are pure untouched beauty and we visit villages along the way.
Please note, day time temperatures will be pleasant but may require light jackets. Early mornings and evenings will be cold and require fleece jackets, and maybe gloves and hats. The air will be clean and brisk. The visibility is remarkable!
Depending on the season you select, you can add South Pakistan before (Spring) or after the tour of the North (Fall).
