Safely in the hands of well-vetted guides, we venture off the main road into the Hunza Valley for Silk Road history, the Karakoram Highway, and lively bazaars, exploring the rich borderland culture along the western frontier between Pakistan and China. Monuments, mosques, and Buddhist manuscripts are some of the treasured finds, but it’s also the amicable people and their work and play that make us hungry to spend more time watching polo matches, dancing, and carpet making. Notable visual feasts are glacial peaks, verdant villages, and romantic castles. We’re enchanted.
