Autumn Photography in Gilgit Baltistan - Saltoro Summits

God has bestowed on Pakistan four seasons, Winter (November to February), Spring (March and April), Summer (May to September) and Autumn (October). Autumn is more attractive especially for photo safari in Baltistan and Hunza. During autumn the landscape of Baltistan and Hunza looks like a painting, the trees throughout the valley seem to be on fire as their leaves turn gold, red-orange and bronze, contrasting sharply with the barren mountains, their tops covered with snow and emerald green waters of the river snaking through the valley,it is a photographic dream come true.
