Getting there & around
At least two or three passenger jeeps leave Gilgit’s general bus stand each afternoon for Naltar (Rs 60), but be sure yours goes to Upper Naltar or be prepared to hike up from Lower Naltar. Gilgit to Upper Naltar takes two to 2½ hours by jeep. A special hire was Rs 2500 return at the time of research. Most Gilgit travel agencies have Naltar packages.
At Upper Naltar you may be able to hire a horse for a day trip or overnight trip to Naltar Lake; ask your hotel-wallah.
