A Children’s History of Gilgit-Baltistan (English Version)

A Children's History of Gilgit-Baltistan is about the beautiful northernmost region of Pakistan—home to some of the highest peaks and plateaus, and the famous Silk Route—visited by two young children with their parents. Their grandmother's description of Gilgit-Baltistan, with its awesome landscape and fascinating history, leads to the trip to this region with their parents. They not only see and enjoy the sights in this wonderful part of northern Pakistan, popular with tourists and mountaineers, but also learn about the various personalities that contributed to its history as well as people who are helping to preserve its cultural heritage.
Beautifully illustrated, A Children's History of Gilgit-Baltistan, will inspire its readers to visit this amazing part of Pakistan and to experience and enjoy its culture and beauty.
