Photographer's Note

Naltar is a wonderful valley just about 2 hrs drive from Gilgit in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Trekking on an easy trail and crossing a forest and shepherds settlements en route is a hidden paradise known as, Naltar Lake, a crystal clear emerald green lake. This is an ideal place for camping. It has green fields and lush green alpine trees. The green and forested Naltar Valley receives more rainfall than other areas in the Hunza Valley, and its alpine scenery is a refreshing change in the arid Karakoram. The Naltar Valley runs north-west from Nomal village, on the west bank of the Hunza River 25 km north-east of Gilgit. Naltar was a hill station for the British and has some military facilities, including a Paki­stan Air Force winter survival school. There is also a ski-lift at Naltar Valley and there are a few Naltar lakes higher up in the valley.
