Posted on at

Gilgit-Baltistan with its six districts is home to some of the most beautiful places that man knows, that were created by nature. Full of lush green valleys and enormous trees, that lends to the feel that you have stepped out of reality and entered a fantasy realm that people read about and can only imagine.

For those who have seen the world but not our beautiful country, they might be mistaken, thinking that these stunning images are from somewhere else.

Here are just a few of those sensational pictures that take us to the fantasy realm of Gilgit-Baltistan.
