Nagar Valley

Nagar Valley Tours

Nagar (formerly State of Nagar) is a district with namesake town as district’s headquarter, in north most 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 meters (8822 feet)

Today, the famous Karakoram Highway crosses Nagar, connecting Pakistan to China via the Khunjerab Pass. The road follows the Hunza-Nagar River for some distance through Nagar and into the hunza region.

 

The Nagar valley previously known as Broshal, 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 and the most intimidating high mountain peaks on earth such as Rakaposhi at 7,788m (25,561 feet), and Diran, and Spantik peak also known as (Golden peak) and several others to be discovered.

 

Following the Hunza-Nagar Campaign of 1889–1892 (known locally as the Anglo-Burusho war) the area passed under British control and then as a vassal of the Kashmir Durbar, but was ruled by the same royal family. In 1974, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto dissolved the Princely States of Nagar and Hunza and gave democratic representation to the Northern Areas Council, now known as the Northern Areas Legislative Council.The British wanted to expand their trade to Russia from here, but the states wouldn’t allow them to.
