Bordering China, the Northern area of Baltistan is astonishing in its beauty of rugged, remote mountains. Connected by the Karakoram highway — a feat of engineering forced against all odds — one is constantly in awe when presented with the immense beauty of the Hunza Valley or the snow-capped summit of Nanga Parbat; and best of all, nature is complemented by the wonderful, welcoming hospitality from the locals. Riding a motorcycle in Pakistan through this rough, remote terrain made it a truly memorable adventure that I’d highly recommend.
