About this activity

Fall arrives on the lowlands in early October, and in the mountains even earlier in mid-September. In the highlands, there is no other type of weather but cold winters. Fall is a mellow and pleasant season, and it is the greatest time to see the countryside. If you want to make the most of Autumn Season in Pakistan, visiting Hunza is a good idea. Hunza Valley looks the best during fall. Because of its moderate climate, a journey to Hunza Valley is always preferred by tourists. Hunza is best visited between April and October when the temperature reaches a maximum of 27°C during the hot summer months. Moreover, during the Autumn season, the valley has trillions of colors with the beautiful high and snow capped mountains in the background.

Thank for your service

Hunza Explorers team did a great job to introduce us about their homeland Shangri La. The owner, Mr Karim, was always quick in answering our emails with 1008 questions. Thank you very much for that. They also recommended the best itinerary for us to fully enjoy the scenery and Hunza lifestyle. And not only Hunza, we also went to Phandar, Gupis which is really beautiful. During the trip, Mr Karim also contacted us frequently to update and make necessary changes upon our request. Our guide Saleem was very kind with us. He was always willing and eager to show us everything, even out of his working hours. Lastly, I would like to recommend all my friends to go to Pakistan before it becomes more open and touristy. We will come back soon for sure.
