Description:

KHUNJERAB NATIONAL PARK

Khunjerab National Park was established in 1975 with the prime aim of protecting Marco Polo sheep (Ovis ammon polii) in its natural habitat. The park lies in the extreme northern part of the former Hunza state known as Gojal. The writing and carvings on the scared rocks of Hunza tell that the this valley has served as a link between China and Gandhara (modern NWFP) and eastern Afghanistan. These inscriptions also reveal that area was ruled by a local prince named Dera Sri Chandra Vikramaitya durng the Gupta period.

Studies reveal more then 100 birds, 25 large mammals, 7 small mammals, 3 reptiles, one amphibian and 150 floral species. Some of the globally threatened and endemic mammals like snow leopard, Himalayan Ibex, Marco Polo Sheep, blue sheep, brown bear and Tibetan wild ass, make the park biodiversity hot spot in the cold desert region of Pakistan.
