Altit Fort (Gilgit Baltistan)

Altit Fort, a historical landmark almost 1100 years old, is located on a big rock in Altit town in the Hunza valley, Gilgit-Baltistan at a distance of 5 km from Hunza Valley on the bank of the Hunza River. It was the old residency of Rulers of Hunza before Baltit Fort and it is also considered as the oldest building in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Fort has been restored in 2007 by the Aga Khan Trust with the support of the Government of Norway. There are small rooms in the fort with wood carvings. Now it is considered as the best tourist place in Gilgit-Baltistan.
