The Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. The Hunza is situated north/west of pakistan. Hunza was formerly a princely state bordering Uyghurstan to the northeast and Pamir to the northwest, which survived until 1974, when it was finally dissolved by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. The state bordered the Gilgit Agency to the south and the former princely state of Nagar to the east. The state capital was the town of Baltit (also known as Karimabad); another old settlement is Ganish Village. Hunza was an independent principality for more than 900 years. The British gained control of Hunza and the neighbouring valley of Nagar between 1889 and 1892 through a military conquest. The then Mir/Tham (ruler) Mir Safdar Ali Khan of Hunza fled to Kashghar in China and sought what would now be called political asylum.
Nanga Parbat (8125m) is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. It has three main faces known as Rupal,
Diamir and Raikot, which are totally different in appearance and shape and their routes start from different valleys.
For Rupal Face, we start from Gilgit or KKH to Tarashing, a green alpine village at the head of jeep trek. It takes another two days to arrive at Rupal base camp.
For Diamer base camp the trek is the most lengthy as it needs three days to reach and the last is Raikot, where we go up to Raikot Bridge on KKH to switch over to local jeeps for Jail, a small place in Tato Valley at the foot of Fairy Meadows.
This program includes a visit to all three faces crossing high passes en route. This program can be shortened according to available time, as we have given different options to finish trekking at several points.
