Hunza Valley

Pakistan is abundant with naturally beautiful green lands and pastures that increase its position as a tourist spot. Hunza Valley is a valley of mountains located in the northern part of Gilgit Baltistan in Pakistan. It is formed by the Hunza River that borders Ishkoman on the Northwest and Shigar on the Southeast.

Hunza valley is known as the Heaven on Earth and is surrounded by many high peaks, including Hunza Peak, Rakaposhi, Ghenta Sar, and Ladyfinger Peak. This valley comes with many beautiful natural sights that are the main attractions for all tourists, among these main attractions including Altit fort and Baltit fort.

Baltit fort has received its renovation and has been turned into a heritage museum. The Bazaar here in Karimabad is ideal for its local handicrafts, traditional embroidered caps, handmade rugs, hand-woven cloth, shawls, and gemstones that are famous worldwide, mainly Ruby. The Ruby mines are the main tourist attractions.

HYDRATION

There is a correlation between daily fluid intake and successful acclimatization and you must pay particular attention to hydration during trekking at high altitudes. On treks to 3000 meters and above most people will need to drink between 4 and 6 liters each day to achieve suitable hydration levels and you must adopt a responsible approach to achieving this target.

ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS

Before embarking on a trek to high altitude it is important that you familiarize yourself with the signs and symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and that you report any illness to your tip leader straight away. See the links at the bottom of this page for further reading on AMS.

DIAMOX

There are a number of untested herbal remedies which claim to prevent mountain sickness. However, only one drug is currently known to have a useful role in preventing AMS and to be safe for this purpose: acetazolamide (Diamox). We recommend that you carry Diamox in your first aid kit for treks where you spend an extended period above 4000m. Diamox can only be obtained from a medical professional on prescription and it is important that you first consult your own doctor so that you know there are no contra indications with other medicines you may be taking and that you do not have an allergy to acetazolamide. Diamox commonly causes some minor side effects, such as tingling fingers and toes, or a metallic taste in the mouth, but more severe reactions are rare. On trek, the decision whether or not and when, you should take Diamox as with any drug, will rest solely with you. If you intend to take Diamox, you must familiarize yourself with the appropriate dosage and regime prior to coming on the trip. The links at the bottom of this page will provide further information on the use of Diamox as an aid to acclimatization.

Travelling to high altitudes is not something you need to be scared of. Every year thousands of people enjoy the most amazing experiences in the world's greatest mountain ranges. Altitude sickness is entirely preventable if you follow very simple rules and procedures. Please make sure you are aware of these before you travel.
