We have visited this place in July.They charge 400/- per head for guide and ticket service.You can see beautiful veiws of glaciers from one side entrance of fort.
This fort that is around 800 years old. You'll walk through an alley to reach this fort. The entrance fee will take you in. That fee include a guided tour. You might have to wait for that. But the guide is informative and can speak both Urdu and English. The architecture is 'relic' type and the history is rich. From the wooden carvings on doors and windows to the pottery and the views from top of the fort are worth watching.
Excellent place. Loved the views and history of the place.
Oh boy! It was a 900 meters walk from our hotel. Slope angle was around 30° to 45°. But it was worth it. Great view. But the history they tell you is a little bit different from what they tell you at Altit fort. Indeed, a great effort to maintain the cultural affiliations and rebuild forts representing old civilization ❤
This Fort is approximately 900 years old and one of the best sights to see in Hunza
