Origin of Hunza

A 1000 years old village is folded in an S-shaped bend on the KKH as it snakes down to cross Hunza River; a strategic position on Hunza River. For centuries Hunzakuts earned their livelihood by taxing the caravans along this branch of Silk Route between Gilgit and Kashghar. Ganish feature a central swimming pool, three of the original 11 watch towers and seven richly carved mosques about 500 years old. Through this very fortified village, Hunza remained impregnable for centuries.
