I would like to thank all those without whom this video would not have made it from vision to reality:

* The staff at the spectacular Shigar Fort residence; Baltistan, the place that inspired the idea; and the peace-loving people of Gilgit-Baltistan. www.serenahotels.com/serenashigarf/default-en.html
* This video is a true labor of love for every member of my brilliant team. Especially Shafqat Amanat Ali who wrote these beautiful lyrics based on information and local mythology provided by the dedicated team of architects at AKCSP working on conserving the Khaplu Fort. The artistically formidable team of director Soheb Akhtar and cinematographer Usman Malkani who awed me with their talent and dedication. Shafqat, Soheb and I had a close call on the road heading back from our recce trip. I am grateful that they stuck to this project despite the dangers.
* The management team at the Serena Hotels, especially Mr. Aziz Boolani's vision and support of this idea from inception to completion, Mr. Azam Jamil's excellent suggestions, and Manizeh Kamal's welcome sense of humour when I was stressing about glitches.
* My family, especially Najeeb Ali Khan, whose support allowed me to make this dream a reality.

LYRICS:
YAHAAN
Manzar mile ga na yeh kaheen pe
Dekhna ho jannat ko zameen pe
Aa jao
Dekho yahaan
Qudrat ke karishmay yahaan

THIS PLACE
This idyll you will not find anywhere
If you want to see a piece of heaven on earth
Heavens open their doors right here
Come
Experience this place
Nature's wonders dwell in this place
Chorus:
Ek baar jo aye
DIl yahaan reh jaye
Jana chahe na phir
Yahaan se

Chorus:
He who comes here once
Leaves his heart behind
And never wants to leave
This place
Phoolon ki shahzaadi
Muskuraye yahaan
Angrayi leti bahaarein
Bhi mileingi yahaan
Tum aao, chahe jiss se milo
Rehta hai har mausam yahaan

The fairy princess of flowers
Smiles upon this place
The seductive turnings of Spring
You will (also) find in this place
Come , and meet everyone who lives in this place
Every season in nature (too) lives in this place

Raat ki kya kahein hum
Taaron [e rakh ke qadam
Badlon ki shaal orhe
Vadi mein ho jayein gum
Chalte rahein, buss chalte rahein
Le jaye yeh rasta jahaan

And what shall we say about the night
Stepping on a sheet of stars,
Wearing a veil of clouds.
We can disappear in the valleys
Let's walk away and keep on walking
To wherever these paths lead us

Jitni haseen vadiyaan hain
Dil bhi utne haseen
Aise dil, aise chehray
Na milenge kaheen
Chehray haseen, manzar haseen
Aur pyari si hain boliyaan

As beautiful as the valleys
Is every heart beating here
Beautiful hearts, beautiful faces
You will not find (this) anywhere else
Beautiful faces, beautiful sights
(And) the soothing beauty of their sounds
