Hussaini Village is situated in Hunza valley at an altitude of 2556 meters in Gojal (Upper Hunza). Hunza River flows in to the east while the Karakoram Highway (KKH) passes to its west. Hussaini glacier is located to the west with famous Shisper peak, 7611 meter. It is situated on the both banks of Hunza River. The old main village is on the western-bank and at the lateral moraine of Hussaini glacier and below Borith Lake. Bridge is used to get to the other side of village from one end. This rope bridge is both long and poorly maintained. Many planks are missing, and strong winds shake the bridge as you cross it. It does little to ease nerves that a previous, older, broken bridge hangs in tatters next to the "new" one. Despite its dangerous looks, however, the Hussaini is is a relatively safe bridge and has become something of a tourist draw, with hikers testing their nerves as they carefully work their way across.
