Driving to Hunza via Karakoram Highway is a wonderful experience for someone who is keen to explore. Driving this route, one experiences the diverse nature the country possess. Among the many, there are Plain lands of Hassanabdal, Pine jungles of Chattar Plains, Tea gardens of Shinkiari, Green Hills of Kohistan, Fresh springs in Shangla, Rugged mountains of Chilas, Snowy mountains of Hunza, The Mighty Indus River, the Attabad Lake, Glacier of Passu and a lot more which I can not mention here.
A trip to Hunza had always been on my (never ending) wishlist. But honestly I had no idea that it will be this beautiful. It was an achanak trip, with little planning and very little publicity. We didn't invite all our friends for the event, it was just a sudden plan to go on a car and before the rest of our group knew it we were on our way to Gilgit-Baltistan.
Akifa is truly an inspiration for all of us. Her life story can touch anyone and here, I would like to share the overview of her life and her eager and love of traveling to the north of Pakistan. The story of touch a lot was selected the best among people choice. So let's get started!
