Valley Of Gold – Hopar Valley – Best Places to Visit in Pakistan

Hopar Valley

When one talks about Pakistan’s tourist attraction, you usually hear names like Gilgit, Hunza, Swat or Skardu. But today I am going to tell you about one of the most beautiful places in Gilgit Baltistan. About 10 km’s ride from Nagar Khas, one arrives at Hopar to behold this picturesque view encompassing the natural beauty of Pakistan.

In Hopar, the mornings start by sipping fresh hot tea as you witness the magic of Pakistan’s beautiful scenes unfold right in front of you. Then one can take a stroll through the village and observe how the common folks go about their daily lives while enjoying freshly ripped apples or Khubanis (apricot).

Hopar is home to some of the most beautiful mountains in Pakistan: Golden Peak, Miar Peak, Rush Peak, and Kapal Peak to name a few. Just a several minutes’ walk from your hotel would take you to the Hoper Glacier.

Here one can experience the pleasure of walking on ice and if you get thirsty, you can always treat yourself by drinking from the sparkling mound of nippy fresh water formed by the melting glacier. Another reason why Hopar would count as one of Pakistan’s points of interest is that it is an ideal spot for trekking and camping. If you are an adventurous sort of a person, a five-hour trek from Hoper glacier would take you to Hispar.
