Pakistan is naturally blessed with many beautiful places. Tourists from around the world love to visit and enjoy its mesmerizing beauty. Pakistan has a lot of beautiful sceneries, lakes, mountains, cities with beautiful architecture and most beautiful valleys. But the most beautiful three northern areas of Pakistan you must visit this summer are mentioned below.
Hunza Valley is a beautiful mountainous valley located in Gilgit Baltistan, which is an area under the Government of Pakistan. The most beautiful town of Hunza, Karimabad (formerly known as Baltit) is the capital as well as the most popular tourist destination of Hunza. As famous as the valley is for its beauty, the people of Hunza are also well-known for their friendliness and hospitality. Unlike most places in Pakistan, Hunza valley has a very high literacy rate of more than 97.6%! Isn’t it amazing? Highest in Pakistan!!!
This summer all you need is to pack your bags and visit this beauty of nature. A dream place and obvious heaven on Earth. If you haven’t visited this place then you are really missing big fun from life. If you ask from me, this place is on top of all places in Pakistan due to its natural beauty. It can’ be described in words. This summer if you are planning to visit this you should know that Hunza’s tourist season is generally from May to October because in winter the Karakoram Highway is often blocked by the snow.

Swat Valley is located in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is among the most beautiful places in the world. This can be best place to visit this summer. This valley has a lot to offer for tourists. Every year thousands of tourists visit this amazing valley and enjoy their time at different places in Swat Valley. However, many of the tourists are not familiar with the different options they have when they are visiting Swat Valley and hence, they don’t visit some beautiful place there due to less knowledge about this valley.

The Kalash valleys of Chitral are located in the southern gorges of the Hindu Kush mountain range in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. The valleys share a 380 km border with Afghanistan in the north & west and the Central Asian states of Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kirghizstan are easily accessible from the area. To the east lies Gilgit, from where one can reach China’s Xinjiang Autonomous Region along the legendary Karakoram Highway.
People of Kalash hold a distinctive tradition and civilization. People are so sweet and friendly. Their hospitality is remarkable and if you visit this place in summer it’s going to be an amazing journey for you.
There are three theories about the origin of the Kalash. Some historians believe that the Kalash are descendants of the soldiers of Alexander the Great, while the second group believes that they are indigenous to Asia and came from what is now the Nuristan area of Afghanistan, and according to the third school of thought; the Kalash ancestors migrated to Afghanistan from a distant place in South Asia, which they call “Tsiyam” in their folk songs and epics. However, it is established that the Kalash migrated to Chitral from Afghanistan in the 2nd century B.C.
In the end, I’ll say that Pakistan is full of beauty of nature and words can’t describe its beauty. I tried my best to describe these places in the least possible words. Must visit these places and you’ll remember these memories for the rest of your life.
