Sakwar is small town and gateway to Gilgit City on the bank of the Gilgit River. Sakwargah Nallah is merged at Sakwar with the Gilgit River. Karakoram Highway is turned toward Hunza from here and Gilgit Road moves toward Gilgit City, Ghizer and Shandur National Park.
Gilgit is splendid place for tourists, situated at the altitute of 4800 feet in the southwest of Karakorum Range in Baltistan Province, an administrative territory of Pakistan. The weather condition of Gilgit is normally dry and hot due to the blockage of moonsoon wind and rain by Nanga Parbat Mt. Due to this climate effect, it shows an entirely different scenery in the mid of snow covered mountains and green fields.
