Something remarkable is taking place around the Shigar and Khaplu forts of Baltistan. Immersed in the breathtaking scenery of the Karakoram Mountains – some of the highest in the world — and steeped in four centuries of folklore and legends, community heritage and culture are being revitalised. Remote communities are reviving ancient construction techniques. Buildings and public places are being restored. In the process, these villages have become showcases for the culture of the area, for dignity, and for hope.
