    I want to say a massive thank you to Ali (Pakistan Travel Market): goo.gl/VY6NjH Without him, this entire trip wouldn’t have been possible.

    Also, thank you to Hunza Serena Inn (serenahotels.com/serenahunza/en/default.html) for sponsoring our stay in Hunza Valley.

    The goal of today’s food tour was to uncover some of the secrets of the long life food of Hunza Valley. Especially traditionally, people were known to live very long and healthy lives - a combination of eating seasonally, lots of nuts, and apricots, and fresh mountain air - we also discovered a few dishes that must have led to long life.

    But we began our day in Gilgit, and first thing at daybreak, we drove about 20 minutes outside of Gilgit to start our morning from a strategic viewpoint. There’s a confluence where three of the highest mountain ranges in the world - Himalayas (Mount Everest), Karakorams (K2), and Hindu Kush, mountains come together. It’s a magical place, and we were literally the only people there.

    We then headed back to Serena Gilgit Hotel for breakfast before starting our day to Hunza Valley. The drive was spectacular from start to finish - you will literally feel your jaw dropping as you drive and you almost cannot believe the scenery will possibly get better… and it does.

    Chapshoro Point - Along the Karakoram Highway from Gilgit to Hunza Valley one of the most famous foods is chapshoro, a meat filled dough pocket. It’s a great tea snack - and we’d be having a few more of these today.
    Total price - 900 PKR ($6.74)

    Hunza Valley - We arrived to Hunza Valley and immediately checked in to Hunza Serena Inn, with an almost unbelievable view from our patio.

    Baltit Fort - We quickly hiked up to Baltit Fort, a spectacular and iconic fort within Hunza Valley and then walked down for a quick bite to eat.

    Hunza Food Pavilion - Just a small little cosy restaurant, yet so inviting and so many good aromas coming out of the kitchen. We ordered chapshoro again, and daodo soup, both of which were amazing.
    Total price - 630 PKR ($4.72)

    Osho Maraka - Hunza Serena Inn - We then headed back to the hotel where they wanted to prepare a local Hunza Valley food lunch for us. The food was good, a little on the plain side for me, but very fresh and local ingredients.

    Eagles Nest - Next we drove up one of the main mountains of Hunza Valley for the view. Although we were late for the sunset, the view was still spectacular.

    Traditional Hunza Valley food - In the evening is when the real authentic Hunza Valley food and cultural learning began. We were invited (thanks to the Gilgit Baltistan tourism ministry for setting it up) to a 400 year old home for a time of music and local Hunza Valley food. The old home was beautiful, and they immediately started playing amazing local music. The food was authentic and local - lots of whole grains, walnuts and almonds, and plenty of apricot oil. One of the dishes, a tortilla like bread filled with walnut paste and apricot oil was one of the secret dishes of longevity - so I was told! Whatever the case, the food, people, and experience, was outstanding.

    By this time I have to stay I was tired, cold, and ready to go back to the hotel to sleep, but they said, we need to stop at one more place.

    It was completely dark, and looked abandoned.

    But we stepped inside a home, and there were at least 20 people huddled in the house, waiting for us.

    I was blown away and humbled.

    They made us tea and a few local pancake like snacks. It was beyond special.

    Thank you to everyone involved, and to the families for their amazing hospitality and kindness. Another absolutely incredible day of food and people in Pakistan.

            Mark enjoys local food better than hotel restaurants. His eyes didn't roll back when he tasted the food. That's how you tell his food grading.... his eye roll 🤣

                          actually the people of Gilgat baltistan and Hunza are honest people, not greedy. You enjoyed cheapest food because we believe strangers or even every trans-passers are our guests. This is our tradition. Otherwise you might get such food anywhere at 1000 USD or more. But they demand only rightful charges from everyone especially if you tell them I am a foreigners, so treat you as our guests

                                              After the horrific attack on Indian Army by Pakistani Terrorist, I am stopping to follow you Mark. Been your ardent follower but hate to see you showing Pakistan as a peace loving country where it is just opposite. Sad to see you now going after sponsors and not caring for the truth.

                                                      A healthy lifestyle advocated by World Health Organization and Modern Medicine can only lower the risk of being seriously ill or dying early. Without complying with the core principles and prime evolutionary intents and purposes of Mother Nature as advocated by the revolutionary approach and holistic solution of isickless.com ,you will not remain youthful and vibrant ,absolutely healthy and biologically younger for life. So called long life food in Hunza Valley is purely by chance. YOU STILL UNABLE TO LIVE TO THE NATURALLY INTENDED AGE OF ABOUT 150 YEARS OLD.
