Key information: Hussaini to Zarabad

  • A fabulous loop over two perilous bridges across the Hunza River from the Karakorom Highway near Passu (north of Hunza proper), circling through rough fields, ravines and villages and traversing a cliff above the river, all beneath majestic mountain scenery.
  • The river crossings are hairy (widely spaced, loose planks in places). Absolutely not for those who are queasy with heights.
  • The area is sadly currently too dangerous to visit.
  • This walk and many others in the area all in Lonely Planet's Pakistan.
  • ANYONE GOT ANY GOOD PHOTOS? WE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO POST THEM!
