Hunza Water and a Journey with Discovering Pakistan

Attabad Lake


Nestled in the heart of the majestic Himalayas lies a region shrouded in mystery and renowned for its remarkable longevity – Hunza, in North Pakistan. Among its many intriguing features, the Hunza Water stands out as a symbol of vitality and health. This glacier water, consumed directly by the people of Hunza, has captured the attention of researchers and health enthusiasts alike. Join us on a journey as we uncover the secrets of Hunza Water and learn how Discovering Pakistan can make your exploration of this extraordinary region even more unforgettable.

Unveiling the Secrets of Hunza Water:

In 1963, a chance encounter between Dr. Patrick Flanagan and Dr. Henry Coanda set the stage for a remarkable discovery. Dr. Coanda, hailed as the Father of Fluid Dynamics, shared his quest for the Fountain of Youth that led him to study the remarkable longevity of people living in mountainous regions worldwide. Among these regions, the pristine land of Hunza emerged as a standout. Dr. Coanda’s research revealed that the common thread among these long-lived individuals was the type of water they consumed – the Hunza Water.

What sets Hunza Water apart are its unique properties, attributed to the silicate minerals sourced from the surrounding glacial mountains. Dr. Flanagan’s research unveiled the water’s lower surface tension and freezing point, high zeta potential, natural colloids, and distinctive tiny silica particles. These properties mirror the water found around our cells, leading to enhanced cellular hydration and nutrient absorption. The legendary Hunza Water has become a beacon of health and vitality, a testament to the profound connection between nature and well-being.

Crafting Your Own Hunza Water:

Now, you may wonder, how can you experience the magic of Hunza Water without venturing to the remote Hunza Valley? Dr. Flanagan’s recipe provides a fascinating insight into the process. With Discovering Pakistan’s guidance, you can embark on a unique journey to create your version of this legendary elixir. Here’s a glimpse of the steps involved:

  1. Begin with a large, clear glass pitcher or vessel, symbolizing the purity of Hunza’s landscapes, and fill it with high-quality, filtered drinking water.
  2. Harness the power of sunlight by placing the container in a sun-drenched window for 24 hours, allowing the water to absorb the vitality of natural light, reminiscent of glacial melting in the Hunza Valley.
  3. Elevate the process by using chunks of Himalayan pink salt, a homage to the region’s mineral-rich environment. These crystals, placed in a non-metal mason jar, will interact with your “sun water” to create a potent elixir known as “sole.”
  4. As the water becomes saturated with the essence of Himalayan salt, a teaspoon of sole is extracted daily, symbolizing the connection between your journey and the life-giving waters of Hunza.
  5. A moment of mindfulness emerges as you savor your creation on an empty stomach, allowing the rejuvenating effects of Hunza Water to flow through you.

Embark on a Journey with Discovering Pakistan:

At this point, the allure of Hunza Water may have ignited a desire to explore the region itself. Here’s where Discovering Pakistan steps in, weaving together the magic of Hunza Water with the enchantment of a real-life journey. Imagine standing amidst the breathtaking landscapes, surrounded by the same glacial waters that have nurtured generations of Hunza residents.
