Photographer's Note

This photo is taken at Zero Point of Rakaposhi Nagar on way to Sumayar at Mr. Sharafat weeding ceremony from Chalt Nagar.

Rakaposhi is notable for its exceptional rise over local terrain. On the north, it rises 5800m in only an 11.5km horizontal distance from the Hunza River. There are magnificent views of Rakaposhi from the Karakoram Highway on the route through Hunza. A tourist spot in the town of Ghulmat (located in the Nagar Valley) called "Zero Point of Rakaposhi" is the closest convenient view point of the mountain.
