Tourists visit this valley mostly in summer. The valley is about half an hour's drive from Gilgit city. This valley is known for its fruits and vegetables, also for the glaciers and high peaks. Vegetables, fruits, and other seasonal crops and Ice from the Glaciers during summers are transported from the valley to the capital Gilgit, so far no ice factory in Gilgit is working in region.

Ice is brought from the Glacier of Karakoram range. The villages of Hamaran, Sinaker, Datuchi, Bolchi, Chirah, Farfu and Hopay lie here and are interconnected by an unmettalled road. Villages on either side of the valley are linked via cable cars (allowing for easy transport of goods and livestock) and the river passes underneath which comes from glaciers of Karakoram Range.
