Autumn Tour – Northern Areas

The North Pakistan, especially Gilgit-Baltistan is blessed naturally with luxuriantly green orchards (mostly of cherry, apricot, apple, pears, peaches), streams full of dancing waters, roaring rivers, and meadows stretching in the quietude like that of heavens at a height which, is a unique feature of Pakistan’s Northern areas. The juniper, pine and Deodar are the trees that, in their trunk rings, have recorded the cycles of rainy and snowy seasons of centuries.

The blue of sky, the emerald of flora and the turquoise of water add to the palette, nature has used to paint this landscape full of mountains, trees and flowers with a divine composition of colors and the brightness of the rising sun, worshiped by the whiteness of the snow which, on some peaks, have never melted for millions of years. Spring in Hunza has a myriad of colous, shapes and hues.
