You were right Afzal

I like this one too. I really like having these trees in the forground. The grenn from the forest and blue sky and puffy white clouds all add to the real beauty of the mountains.

Re: You were right Afzal

Thank you very much for your kind words about my photos. The Hunza valley is situated in the northmost part of Pakistan and encompassing the north-western-karakoram. Hunza is, according to Eric Shipton, "The ultimate manifestation of mountain grandeur". The Hunzavelly is about 240km long and is surrounding by high peaks, like Ultar and Rakaposhi. Before the construction of the Karakoram Highway, Hunza was one of the most remote place in the Karakoram. Now the KKH, formerly known as the Kashgar-Gilgit Caravan Route, winds its way through the precipitous mountains along the Hunza River, linking Pakistan with the Chinese Turkistan.
Thank you vety much for your valuable comments to my photos.
Best regards, Afzal
