Hunza Valley

The Hunza Valley is valley situated within the Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan mountain range, about 124 miles (200 km) east of Pakistan’s Gilgit River. Please note that while there are no designated stargazing areas, the valley is accessible by locals and tourists year-round, and also provides ample opportunity for hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and more, as well as camping opportunities for visitors who connect with a local concierge or nearby resort. One EarthSky reader calls this area “an epitome of beauty, serenity and wilderness … one of the best places to view Milky Way and millions of stars is Hunza in the Himalayas.” The area is free from pollution both light and smoke.
