Gilgit-Baltistan is home to some of the world’s most jaw-dropping landscapes, with more than fifty mountains over 7,000 metres, and 5 over 8,000. For millennia ancient trade routes have snaked their way through the verdant valleys which lie between these high peaks, carrying goods, ideas and influences between south Asia, Afghanistan and nearby China.
Travel with Matthieu Paley
We will be exploring northern Pakistan with National Geographic photographer Matthieu Paley. Matthieu knows Hunza intimately, speaking Urdu and having lived in Gilgit-Baltistan for a number of years. Matthieu will open our eyes to this unique region and help us capture what we see on camera.
Over the last 15 years, Matthieu has been on assignment across the world with National Geographic and Time magazine, from the base camp of the highest unclimbed mountain in the world (Bhutan) to the smallest republic in the middle of the Pacific ocean (Nauru). Matthieu has published numerous photographic books, including ‘Pamir, Forgotten on the Roof of the World’.
