Gilgit-Baltistian is rich in culture and heritage with its own local dress, traditions and music.
A white, round and soft hat, called Shaati, is part of the local dress. It is worn by people as a symbol of pride as it resembles a crown. The hat is made from wool and decorated with peacock feathers.
Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Hafiz Hafeez-ur-Rehman hosted a ceremony at Chinar Bagh, a park in Gilgit, to celebrate the area's culture.
