We Are Gilgit
We have been born as twins in Pakistan identically but having different cultures and traditions, sharing some historical memories of diversification with an example of pluralism.
We live in the north, obscured in the heights of the mighty Karakoram.
The beauty, which knows no precincts and we are not even deprived of any introduction, the natural majesty we hold gives us a sense of uniqueness.
We border ourselves with one of the highest mountain peaks and plateaus of the world; we own one of the most inimitable wild lives present in the region. With some of the most mesmerizing views and breathtaking sceneries, we attract people from not only Pakistan but from all over the world.
Gilgit-Baltistan is one of the top destinations for tourists, because of the fact that it is home to eighth wonder of the world, and consist of world’s three largest glaciers outside the Polar Regions.
Tourism is mostly in mountaineering and trekking, and this is one of the main reasons for which, the area is gaining much importance.
Natives have a fine-looking blend of living standards and mindsets, no matter how confused other people get about their culture and customs, the locals of GB will still manage to preserve the old customs and traditions in an astonishing manner.
The preservation of its rich culture and traditions has been done brilliantly.
However, the world around them is changing rapidly, but they have held on their traditional norms. We can still witness the old family oriented setup, where generations after generation people living together, everyone can observe more than two generations living together under one roof.
Five different type of languages are spoken in all over Gilgit- Baltistan and more than five types of ethnicities are living in the region; each having beauty of blended requisites and traditions.
Which gives the viewer a flash back to the commitments and preservations of their ancestor’s folklore.
The youth is biggest influential force they have there, we can perceive in every part of country that young natives from GB are enrolled in pinnacle universities not just in Pakistan but in foreign countries as well.
With tremendous results and amazing achievements in their academic career, they have been a great source of pride for the whole nation contributing the best in armed and civil services.
