Duiker

Duikar is a charming hamlet above the village of Altit which is situated next to Baltit, Karimabad. Karimabad is the capital of the former state of Hunza. The state of Hunza was ruled by the same family for over 960 years, with their seat being the Baltit Fort. Both Baltit Fort and the even older Altit Fort are worth a visitor before you come up to Duikar or on your way down.
One of the main attractions of Duikar is the viewpoint (2900 m) which is a 5 minute climb up behind Eagle’s Nest Hotel. Here you have the best views during sunrise and sunset, if you have the chance come to Eagle’s Nest Hotel at full-moon. Starting from Eagle’s Nest Hotel it is a 1 ½ hours climb up to Hosht (3600 m). From the Hosht viewpoint you have great views of Ultar Mountains and Hopper glacier. The Hunza panorama is wider and dearer here.
The Ultar glacier trek can be done as long day trek or one can camp for a night at Ultar meadow. It is a pleasant hour stroll to the Hazrat Abbas shrine near Shabbat village. From here there are spectacular views down to Karakorum Highway and an awesome views of Golden peak, Rakaposhi, Ultar and Lady's Finger mountains.
