Most visitors only see the Bagrot valley's broad alluvial fan across the Gilgit River. 15 km downstream from Gilgit. Its narrow, lower reaches are desolate, but above Sinakkar it's a cultivated and settled valley. From Bagrot, the stunning south faces of Rakaposhi (7788m) and Diran (7266m) peaks, as well as the lovely twin summits of Bilchar Dobani (6134m) are visible. Phuparash (6785m), Malubiting (7458m), Laila (6986m) and Haramosh (7409m) peaks tower over the Haramosh valley, which lies east of Bagrot and branches north from the Indus River. Treks in these valleys, seldom on trekker's itineraries, are readily accessible by road with mostly easy trails and superb views.
