The Oldest Fort of Hunza
Altit Fort is 1000 years old, the very first fort and birthplace of the Hunza Kingdom, perched on a cliff that falls 300m sheer into the Hunza River. Altit fort is more authentic than Baltit and has been preserved in quite original matter. The walk to fort is also one of its kind passing through Altit village and Royal Gardens. A guided tour to the fort will fill you in with the ancient history of Hunzakuts people, significance of their Bruhshuski Language (a linguistic isolate) and transformation of architecture and culture since 11th century.
