The Naltar Mountains, north-west of Gilgit, have dozens of 5000m summits. Although not high by Karakoram standards, many are impressive. Naltar receives more rainfall than other areas in the HunzaValley, and its alpine forests are a refreshing respite in the otherwise arid Karakoram. Naltar was a British hill station and has some military facilities, including a Pakistan Air Force winter survival school.
Naltar Peak is a mountain in Naltar Valley in the Gilgit District of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It lies to the southeast of Mehrbani Peak (5,639 m). Naltar village at 2800m has an army ski-training resort and is a good place to chill out and take a short easy trek around the valley. It is also starting point for two longer treks, one across the Naltar Pass 4600m to Ishkoman and the other across the Daintar Pass 4636m to Chalt.
The trek involves walking through flowery meadows, lakes and spectacular greenery. The route also passes through a lush forest of cedar, pine and birch. It therefore offers something more diverse in terms of landscape and has more than the usual share of scenic beauty without being too physically demanding. An excellent option of beginners as well as experienced trekker.
