Baltit Fort, Hunza Valley, Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan.

The ruling family in Hunza originally resided in Altit Fort in the valley, but a conflict between the two sons of the Mir of Hunza forced one of them to build the Baltit Fort, which is now close to 800 years old. Several alterations have been made to it over time, and it is currently a tourist attraction after being renovated by the Agha Khan Trust for Culture.
