When To Visit Karimabad, Hunza Valley
The best time to visit Karimabad and the Hunza Valley is from Apirl to October, but avoid June to August if you do not like crowds. The Hunza Valley can get quite crowded during the midsummer months as both the locals and the Chinese tourists flock to the place when the temperature is nice and warm.
I was in the Hunza Valley in October and the temperature hovers around 15°C while the nights go a bit below. The temperature was very manageable, but I didn't have to deal with the crowds.
