From Hunza Valley we drove on our way to Khunjerab Pass, a high elevation mountain pass along the Karakoram Highway at the border with China. At 16,010 feet in elevation, it’s pretty high, and you start to feel a little dizzy.
Before getting to Khunjerab Pass, we first stopped at Attabad Lake, a spectacular lake in the mountains, a result of an earthquake that changed the course of the mountains causing a dam along the Hunza River. Boat ride and tea was amazing.
We continued driving and stopped in Sost, Pakistan, to eat a quick lunch, which happened to be my first vegetarian meal in Pakistan - including dal, beans, and mixed vegetables, all of which were delicious.
Another couple of hours later, passing herds of yak and flocks of sheep and goats, we finally made it to Khunjerab Pass. It was cold, freezing cold, and the elevation was so high that if you just walk for a little while you start to lose your breath. But the views and location were otherworldly.
From Khunjerab Pass we drove down to Gulmit Village, known for having a populations of Pamiri people, and therefore Pamiri food. Although similar to the food we had in Hunza Valley, it was also quite different, but again very unique, refreshing, healthy and wholesome, using lots of whole grains, nuts, and local produce.
It was my first time to ever eat Pamiri food and to learn just a little about Pamiri culture and people.
Another amazing day in Pakistan. The next day we traveled to Karachi!
