Lord Curzon, a former viceroy, said, “The little state of Hunza contains more summits of over 20,000 feet than there are of over 10,000 feet in the entire Alps.” Visitors to Hunza are deeply overwhelmed by the rugged charm and the fragrant breeze singing through graceful trees and the lushious green attractively carpeted fields all set against a background of snow-covered mountains, Situated at an elevation of 2,438 metres, Hunza Valley’s tourist season peaks from May to October. The temperature in May is 27 C maximum and 14 C minimum. While the October temperatures range from: 10 C maximum to 0 C minimum.
Hunza is a remarkably peaceful and beautiful place situated at an elevation of 2,438 metres, it is situated 112 km of north of Gilgit on the west bank of the Hunza river. The Hunza Valley is composed of “Hunza Proper” (as Hunzukutz call it) in the midvalley, while the upper valley region is called Gojal and is populated by the Wakhi-speaking ethnic Wakhi. Nagar, another former state, is located in two areas, and you will visit its narrow glaciated canyons as you proceed up the valley. The Nagaris speak Burushaski with their own accent. Practice your Burushaski, with those you meet; people will enjoy it, and you may be asked in for a cup of tea. Burushaski is a complex language with four genders, and it is a “isolated language,” unrelated to any other tongue.
