This piece of script is a story about the magical experience of one of the fabled places on earth, Hunza Valley and Fairy Meadows. From the lush green kaghan valley to the snow-capped mountains of Gilgit Baltistan the journey got all, that it takes to be adventurous and enjoyable at the same time.

Trip Preparations

It all starts from just planning a trip, well you don’t plan it yourself team Exploria plans it for you and free you from all the hustle that one must bear while going on such a long journey. I was fortunate to have my trip arranged with Exploria. It was a new experience as I was boarding the train alone for the first time but thanks to social media the boys were already got gel up on the Whats App group set up by the organizers so it was just a matter of meeting with each other and to get along on a memorable trip. The journey from Karachi to Islamabad was not much to discuss as it was nothing compared to what lies ahead yet a delicious dinner with a mesmerizing view of Islamabad from Monal restaurant is worth mentioning at this juncture.

Naran, Kaghan Valley; our guide said, it’s the trailer

The next morning the call to the north awakens all of us as we prepared to move to Chillas from Islamabad. On the way along the beautiful sceneries soothes our eyes. As we were passing by lush green valleys on a smoothly paved road with melodious music playing in the background which was just enough for me to help myself indulge in love for these mountains but suddenly I realized I as being into the heavens, it was the majestic kaghan valley, the beauty of which cannot be described in words. lush green mountains with snow-capped peaks at the backdrop were certainly picturesque. We had a brief stop at that place and continued over journey along the valleys which were ready to surprise us with their growing beauty as we move further upwards towards the north.

Fairy Meadows, heaven for real

Up till now, the journey was enjoyable yet the adventure feature was still missing and it was smartly figured out as our next destination was Fairy meadow. A place with heavenly beauty at the heart of Nanga Parbat the killer mountain. As it is one of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet so the stakes were also high and reaching there was not an easy task. It took a 2-hour long jeep ride on the world’s second most dangerous jeep track which was followed by a 3-hour trekking.

The journey is not for the faint-hearted but it is surely bliss for adventure lovers and once you reach that stately place you get to realize that there is always something beautiful waiting for you if you work hard. In my opinion, no words can ever describe the exquisite beauty and charm of that place, no wonder it draws nature lovers from around the world. The serenity and peace at that place just make u feel closer to your inner self, the beauty of that gigantic dove white mountain i.e. Nanga Parbat soaring into the sky in front of you feels indescribable.

 

Hunza Valley, Heaven on Earth

After spending a day so close to nature it was time for us to experience the lifestyle of nature-loving people as we moved to Hunza valley, a place which is renowned nationally but also internationally for its high literacy rate and peace-loving people who are always there to welcome you and makes you feels at home. The food, the culture, the organic fresh fruits which you can directly pluck from trees, everything was wonderful and we had a splendid time exploring the city and the camping at the Duiker valley was an unforgettable experience. A musical night under the full moon with local musical instruments, nothing can get better than this. I must recommend a camping night at Duiker valley for every tourist who is going to read this.

As our trips call for an end. Our last stop was Khunjerab Pass Pakistan-China border. The world’s highest border crossing in freezing temperature is situated in Khunjerab national park.  It can present you with an opportunity to see snow leopard hunting ice backs in the mountains. Our trip ended as we moved back to Karachi with lots of memories and new friends.

I should say to every aspiring one who wishes to tour to the north. I have never found time spent amongst nature to be a waste of time.

  1. Hunza Valley really enrich the beauty of Nature. The only one thing that comes into mind is that you are in Heaven at this time, it’s lush green mountains that peaks are covered with snow, its really a lovely and unforgetable scenes of Nature. Attabad Lake is also located in the Hunza Valley. I personally recommend to you that if you go to visit the Hunza Valley again, don’t forget to visit it.

    From the lush green kaghan valley to the snowcapped mountains of Gilgit Baltistan the journey got all, what it takes to be adventurous and enjoyable at the same time. The magical experience to one of the fabulous places on earth, Hunza Valley and Fairy Meadows. The journey is not for faint-hearted but it is surely a bliss for adventure lovers. As this journey includes some jeep rides on the world’s most dangerous roads. “The voyage is not for the timid, but it is undoubtedly a paradise for adventure seekers”.

We were a group of friends traveled with Exploria to the heavenly Northern Pakistan. The company made sure our tour experience goes smoothly. Accommodation, food, and the vehicle was the best. The trip was quite a challenge for Exploria due to the weather fluctuations however, the company made sure all things go smoothly. Thanks Exploria for an amazing tour experience. I would certainly recommend Exploria to all my friends and family.

Had a great experience travelling with Exploria! Their entire team is natives of the beautiful northern Pakistan. Everything was so well organised from the accommodation to the food to the tours. The management was nice and looked after all our needs, making sure everything was perfect. I will certainly recommend Exploria to everyone visiting Pakistan. Best tour operator in Pakistan.

I messaged Exploria in WhatsApp and got into contact with someone who introduced himself as Ashraf, one of the owners. On a Friday night I secured a booking for Monday for a day tour of Islamabad. I signed off with, "I'm looking forward to meeting you. See you Monday." On Sunday night I got a message asking if I was still interested in the tour because "I haven't heard back from you." I messaged back late night/early morning because of the timing of my flight and surprisingly heard from Ashraf. When I arrived in Islamabad, I messaged Ashraf at our appointed meeting time that I was in my hotel room and ready to meet when he was ready. I heard nothing back. I sent a brief query then took a nap. When I awoke, two hours after our scheduled meeting, still no response. So, I contacted the manager of the hotel and asked if he could suggest a tour for me. I was staying at a 5-star hotel (1st night only), so the manager took it upon himself to try and sort the issue with Exploria first. After several phone calls to both Ashraf's phone and the company's landline, I got one message from Ashraf stating he thought I didn't want the tour. At this point, the hotel manager had been contacting both numbers asking if someone was coming for my tour -- clearly I still wanted the tour! When I messaged that fact to Ashraf, he went radio silent again. Meanwhile, I had my tour of Islamabad with a guide the hotel set up -- at a much reduced rate. That evening I had a couple back-and-forths with Ashraf about how he thought I didn't want the tour because I "never got back to him." He kept doubling down that the communication issue was my fault despite my clear messaging and calls from the manager of a 5-star hotel! The cautionary tale is this: Mine was just a one-day tour, so my trip to Pakistan wasn't ruined. However, imagine if I'd secured their services for one of those multi-day, multi-location tours, and they left me stranded that way after I'd already arrived in the country. In short, I would be very leery of a company that has no problem ghosting a customer on the very day of a scheduled excursion.

Still in awe after watching picturesque sights at Hunza It was our company (Cricingif) trip managed by the cordial staff of Exploria. The AC coaster bus was in good condition and we didn't experience any problems in our journey to Gilgit Baltistan from Lahore. The hotels that they booked for us were good and I really enjoyed the indigenous music performance at Heavens Lodge hotel. Food was fine too as I was concerned about the hygiene, but it all turned out fine in the end. They can improve in the realm of guiding tourists at the spots that they take us to and share interesting insights about all those spectacular places in the beautiful Hunza valley. Nanga Parbat, Rakaposhi, Husseini Bridge, Forts, and Attabad Lake are all worth watching. I see Exploria becoming a top-notch company very soon if they continue to focus on providing immaculate services and keep customer satisfaction high. Thank you for a memorable trip!
