Duykhar, a village on the top of hills watching over the Hunza valley, is a green and busy village in summer, when people come to cultivate the land and hotels are full of tourists. The area is called as Eagle’s Nest, from where people can view the whole valley, resembling an eagle in its nest. But in winter, the village is totally deserted. The wind is very harsh and the temperature is extremely chilling. There is no electricity and no business from tourism. During the winter months, all the inhabitants move to their warmer houses downhill. They just left the houses here like that, without worrying that anybody would trespass or steal anything.
