Today, my sister returned from a 7-day trip to our village, our hometown, in the extreme north of Pakistan, leading a 5-member Chinese delegation.
Here’s a little about this area so close to my heart before I dive into the pictures. Sandwiched between the South and China, the Hunza Valley is a remote mountaneous valley in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. With a literacy rate of over 90%, this former princely state is considered to be the most beautiful place in Pakistan and one of the most beautiful places in the world. The valley is also popularly believed to be the inspiration for the mythical valley of Shangri-la in James Hilton’s 1933 novel Lost Horizon.
My sister had gone there for a project with her Chinese colleagues and while they didn’t get much time for leisure and pleasure, she did manage to steal a little time and took some great photos that I’d like to share with my blogging family-everyone and would like to show a beautiful side of my country as well.
Drum Roll please!!!
