Exterior View of Hunza  Serena Inn


The Shimshal Valley is approximately four hours drive from Hunza.The road to Shimshal leaves the KKH at the Batura Glacier, and crosses the Hunza River on a suspension bridge and then enters a narrow gorge. To the east of Shimshal lies China via the Pamir Pass, and Baltistan to the south. During the years that Hunza was a princely state, the valley was used as a penal colony. Highlights of a visit to the valley are the Destaghil Sar peak (7885m), Mulungutti Glacier, Adver Sar / Shimshal Whitehorn (6400m) and Shimshal Lake which is famous for its natural beauty.
