Nagar Valley


Nagar is a district with namesake town as district's headquarter, in northmost autonomous territory of Gilgit–Baltistan. It was created in 2015 by subdividing the Hunza-Nagar District.
It is located at 35°24'0N 73°48'0E with an altitude of 2688 metres (8822 feet).
Today, the famous Karakoram Highway crosses Nagar, connecting Pakistan to China via the Khunjerab Pass. The road follows the Hunza river for some distance through Nagar and into the hunza region.

The Nagar valley is situated at an elevation of 2,438m (7,999 feet). Nagar Khas is the main town and the capital of the former State of Nagar. Ghulmet, Minapin, BAR, Chaprote and Hopper Valleys are popular tourist attractions in the Nagar region because of the spectacular scenery of the surrounding mountains such as Rakaposhi at 7,788m (25,561 feet), and Diran, and Spantik peak (Golden peak.)
