one of the most poignant places to visit. the history of this 700 palace is astounding. From bringing a bride from Tibet, to the jails, and to the execution tower. the palace tells of waves of conquests from hindus to mongols to the british. Unbelievable.

If you are in Hunza then you must visit both Altit and Baltit fort- they are both very different with equally great views of the area. Adventure Planners Pakistan arranged a trip to the fort and surrounding area. The guide at the fort had brilliant English and was very knowledgeable about the history of the region, very interesting!
