Autumn is more attractive especially for photo safari in Hunza –Nagar Valley and Baltistan region. During autumn the landscape of Hunza-Nagar valley and Baltistan region looks like a painting, the trees throughout the valley seem to be on fire as their leaves turn gold, red, orange, and bronze, contrasting sharply with the barren mountains, their tops covered with snow and emerald green waters of the river snaking through the valley. It is a photographic dream come true.
