Hunza is very famous for its local eateries, which are served at most of the restaurants located in the Karimabad market area. Some of the names of the traditional foods are Sharbat, diram-fete, davdo, muleda, amongst many others. These dishes are cooked with pure butter and downed them in oil, but are prepared on occasion as they are expensive.
There are at least 50 shops, restaurants and hotels located on Karimabad’s bustling streets. One of the biggest attraction in this area are the variety of precious and semi-precious minerals and gemstones. Many tourists visit the Gilgit-Baltistan area for this reason.
Hunza is very safe and the people are known for their hospitality. Similar to all Pakistan cities, it is is best to dress modestly. Women must cover their shoulders and knees, and couples should avoid public displays of affection.
