Very interesting fort, on top of the hills, and the best view of Karimabad is from this fort. The guide is knowledgeable, and if you travel alone, he will be happy to take your photos and posed you in the same place like the picture in the entrance ticket.

A good walk up the cobblestone road up to the fort. I got a nice view of Hunza Valley and Karimabad and the villages below. And you get to take a photo with the famous guard at the fort. You won't miss him. He had a thick facial hair. I interacted with some family villagers as I walked up and... More

It's bigger than Altit fort and holds the majestic views of five largest mountains of Pakistan such as Rakaposhi, lady finger etc. The 200 years old carpet and the gowns... More

One of the best kept historical monument in Pakistan. Kudos to Agha Khan Foundation. Guides are excellent. Very hard work done by all to preserve this asset, hats off to all of the team members. Bit of a hike to reach there but manageable in the end. Take your time in the fort and don't rush through it if you... More

The view from the city is stunning. The architectural style is quite unique and interesting. It is a steep 15 minutes climb through karimabad to get... More

Baltit is a 700-year-old fort and belongs to Mir of Hunza and is counted as World Heritage by UNESCO. Fort is situated at the tip of a... More
