“An astonishing piece of ancient history!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Located on the top of a hill in the beautiful Hunza Valley, in gilgit BALTISTAN, the most beautiful province of Pakistan. This ancient fort is one of two located in this valley and its foundations date back 700 years. It has been restored and is being maintained by the Agha Khan Trust for Culture. The climb to the fort can be tough esp for the city slickers who have the healthy habit of smoking. The weather is very pleasant and the people are friendly and helpful. Over all the best place in all of pakistan, a must see for all Pakistanis.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Getting there will be a challenge for those out-of-shape individuals -- take the climb slowly -- but it is definitely worth the hike. Magnificent!!
