Arrive and check-in, have some rest, enjoy some food and explore some famous vantage points of the city

To reach Gilgit we take a ride and drive through the scenic wonderland of Kaghan and Naran Valleys and climb upto the famous Babusar Pass (13,691 ft). Gilgit is a famous city along the ancient Silk Road serving as a corridor to spread Buddhism in the Asia. Being one of the busiest cities of this area, it offers some beautiful views with the buzz of modern life in Karakorams

While learning and enjoying nature, we will be exploring and photographing HUNZA and NAGAR Valleys,. Early morning starts, light to moderate walks along the trees and capturing the romance of clouds, mountains and river against the deep blue sky. People of this area are very much welcoming with beautiful smiles.

Sunrise and sunset experience from top of the valley fruiting trees, terracing fields, beautiful faces, a life full of fun, food and lots of pictures

(Passu Cones with Cascading Hunza River in the basin is such a unique place that one can experience ‘’eye to eye’’ contact with towering peaks of Passu

we will slowly move towards Gilgit and then to Islamabad, either by road or by air depending on the ground situations. Our tour ends here in Islamabad and you will follow your next plan

WHAT TO BRING

We do our best to keep you comfortable but let us know if there is something that you can’t eat, please let us know. Weather in these mountains is unpredictable. During the day it ll be pleasant but the nights can be really cold so you need to bring warm clothes and a light jacket. A comfortable pair of shoes, a good hat, warm gloves and sunblock is recommended.

CAMERA EQUIPMENT

In terms of camera kit you can bring your kit but a light and sturdy tripod with some lenses for landscapes and general photo opportunities such as a 24-70mm for landscapes is the favourite choice. I would suggest a macro lens of some sort and then maybe an intermediate zoom (70-200 or 100-400) so that you don’t miss anything in terms of opportunity. During the evenings we will have a chance to critique and look at participants’ work.
