Naltar is a valley near Gilgit, Hunza and Nomal in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. Naltar is about 54 kilometres from Gilgit and can be reached by jeeps. Naltar is a forested region known for its dramatic mountain scenery. Ski competitions are held at Naltar ski resort.One of my most favourite place in Pakistan.
There are three lakes in Naltar Valley known as Naltar Lakes or Bashkiri Lakes at altitudes ranging from 3,050–3,150 metres (10,010–10,330 ft). In one of the three lakes colour of water is green (due to grasses grown inside the lake) while the second has blue colored water and the third has azure colored water.The road up to the lakes is a dirt road alongside a stream flowing down the valley.
The lakes are surrounded by dense pine forests. The best time to visit the lakes is from May to October.
During the winter, it becomes almost impossible to reach the lake by vehicle due to the heavy snowfall in the Naltar Valley.
