The Mystique of Hunza Valley

The best time to visit the fabled Hunza Valley at the northern tip of Pakistan is during autumn. At that time of the year, the leaves turn yellow and the fruits have ripened. However, spring is still an amazing time. The lush green foliage is soothing and some of the best cherries I have ever tasted can be eaten right off the trees.
