Hunza…The Community

Hunza is a close-knit community and several programs are run for the benefit of the people. We visited a workshop where women learn the craft and make wooden furniture. The products are then sold. The women working there are also partners in the business.

Here are few shots:

Attabad Lake

In 2010, a massive landslide blocked the flow of Hunza River flowing along Karakurram Highway. Several people lost their lives and thousands were displaced.

Now a days, it is tourist spot and the water is unbelievably blue.
