In March April and May the valley is full of flowers, and Panoramic view across the Hunza and Nagar Valleys incorporate three snow capped peaks over 7,000 meters (Rakaposhi 7788Mtrs and Ultar 7388Mtrs), providing a contrast to the natural environments of Hunza. The view of Hunza from Karimabad in spring is incredible, though it remain spectacular at any time of the year.
For Himalayan mountaineer Eric Shipton, Hunza was "the ultimate manifestation of mountain grandeur" - the most spectacular country he had ever seen. Few would argue. It inspired James Hilton to write his modern fable, Lost Horizons, set in a land of peace and plenty, where people never aged.

There's some truth to the myth. Scientists discovered that, free from social stress and succored by a monotonous diet of apricots and low intake of animal fat, the Hunzakuts did enjoy longevity. Many centenarians still work their fields in Hunza.
