Amazing Place and Amazing People of Pakistan

This trip exceeded all my expectations - guides, the scenery, the difficulty, the camaraderie, the people and the pure awe of the Hunza Valley. Pakistan is rich in tradition, humanity and pure beauty. The Pakistanis are so very generous and showed their kindness every day. The guide “Karim” and driver “Gul” made sure everyone had the best experience. They were always supportive, engaging and encouraging. This was definitely an once in a lifetime experience I will never forget.” I’d highly recommend Hunza Explorers for your trip in Pakistan.

Many memorable things with Hunza Explorers

As early as we have a plan for a trip to visit Hunza valley, we contact many agents in Pakistan to find a suitable itinerary, and Hunza Explorers offers an itinerary that is sensible. The reason I choosing Hunza Explorer is they are willing to tailor the trip and help we can cook by ourselves so we really appreciate it. Besides, the guide Sultan and the driver Rashi is really really great. Sultan is attentive and takes care of us very well during the trip. Even though when we want to go to another place, not on the itinerary but he is willing to take us to go. We also have a chance to stay at Karim's homestay so we have a lot of exposure with local people. It is a unique experience and brings to us many unforgettable memories. Thank a lot and hope to see you guys soon.
