Hidden in the mountains north of Gilgit - up a dramatic, barren gorge 19 Kms long - is the surprisingly green
and lush valley of Naltar. Some climatic quirk gives Naltar rainfall three times that of Gilgit, and the valley is heavily
wooded with pine, spruce, birch, rowan, and juniper. Areas: Naltar Pass, Ishkoman, Daintar Pass, Chalt.
