Hunza was a princely state and it touched the border of China to the north-east and at its north west is Pamir. Its status of state was dissolved by Bhutto in 1974.


Hunza provides the short route to Swat and Gandhara, if a person wants to travel on foot. But one has to take permission from the locals to do so. The temperature in May touches to 27 degree at maximum and on the low side it remains  at 14 centigrade. Tourists often come between May to October, because in winter the Karakoram Road is prone to be blocked  by the snowfall.

Peshawar is one of the most important cities of Pakistan from the Strategic and Geographical point of view. It is the capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province and it is also the center where all the administrative and economic activities are performed linked with FATA or Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Khyber Pass or Darra e Khyber is also a hallmark of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province near the city of Peshawar. The location of Peshawar City linked with Central Asia and South Asia makes it a most actively accessed and visited city of Pakistan. Kabul River irrigates much of the area of the city, The Kabul River's right tributary also irrigates its most part.

It also plays its role as a link for the trade activities between Afghanistan, South Asia, Middle East and the Central Asia. Central Asian states find Peshawar the favorite route for their access to Sub-continent and South Asian countries.
Peshawar's history has been shrouded in mystry as it is historically linked with the empire of Gandhara under the rule of Kushan King Kanishka whose period of rule is after 2 or 3 BC, . It was also ruled by the Greek Bactrian King, Eucratides whose period is from 170-159 BC). So it can safely be called the oldest city of South Asia. One more evidence of this fact is the Archeological site  of Gorkhatri, where excavation work is going on, and it is believed to be the widest and deepest site of the world. It has also been under the rule of Afghan and Moghal rulers for a long time.
