“Explore the valleys of Hunza, Shigar and Khaplu via the renowned Karakoram Highway,” Sara Barbieri, a specialist working with luxury travel website GeoEx, suggests in the article.
Khaplu (Khaplu is a town that serves as the administrative capital of the Ghanche District of Gilgit-Baltistan, in northern Pakistan).
Hunza (Hunza is a mountainous valley in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, situated in the extreme northern part of Pakistan, bordering with the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan and the Xinjiang region of China)
Shigar (Shigar is a district in the Baltistan division in the north of Skardu in northern Pakistan. The town is a popular site for tourists and trekkers and contains many his torical buildings of architectural significance associated with the all communities).
Karakoram Highway ( The Karakoram Highway is a national highway which extends from Hasan Abdal in the Punjab province of Pakistan to the Khunjerab Pass in Gilgit-Baltistan, where it crosses into China and becomes China National Highway 314. The highway is a popular tourist attraction, and is one of the highest paved roads in the world, passing through the Karakoram mountain range).
“This little-visited region in the far northeast of the country offers the kind of startlingly striking scenery that compels you to gaze from the window without blinking, for fear of missing a moment of the majesty of the landscape — or one of the astounding suspension bridges that cross the surging rivers filled with snow melt,” she further writes. “Add to this the warm welcome of the people, the glacial blue of Attabad Lake, the centuries of history, the juxtaposition of granite to greenery, the chance to walk through an age old-apricot orchard along water channels cut by hand, and the blazing snow-covered glory of Rakiposhi and you must acknowledge there is a grand adventure to be had.”
Other countries that made it to the list were:
Bhutan, Colombia, Mexico, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mongolia, Rwanda and The Turkish Rivera.
