These guys from Hunza made a huge replica of the Baltit Fort using just snow

This effort deserves to go viral

For the past three days, Pakistan has received tons of rain and snow. The Northern areas especially witnessed an unusual amount of snow this season. If you haven’t been able to visit the Northern Areas while it was snowing, you can imagine how much snow fell from the fact that even Lahore was covered white with hailstorm last night.

The unusual volume of snow triggered a local artist from Hunza to unleash his creativity. He arranged a session with the local youth of Central Hunza to teach them about the basics of snow-sculpting.

But his little class of snow-sculpting soon turned out to be pretty amazing as he and his team of aspiring artists created this wonderful replica of the historical Baltit Fort. Check out the images below and be amazed at the skill of these folks.
