Survey the scenery from the upper terrace of Baltit Fort, an ancient clifftop fortress. In 1996, the fort became a museum, exhibiting artifacts belonging to Mir of Hunza and providing an overview of the historical heritage and culture of Hunza. On the ground floor, see the fort's storage chambers, then proceed to the large open hall on the first floor. Continue to the second floor, which contains an audience hall the quarters of those who used to live here. From the fort's terrace you can enjoy sweeping views of Rakaposhi. You have to climb up to the fort by foot, taking a path which will lead you along cobbled streets lined with old houses and stores, giving you a taste of the local lifestyle. The shops sell local crafts, embroidery, jewelry, and handmade items.
