Daintar Pass

Naltar Valley (75)

Daintar Pass

Daintar Pass is a mountain pass to the northeast of Mehrbani Peak in the northwest of Chaprote. This pass is at an elevation of 16,390 feet (5,000 m).
Hidden in the mountains a dramatic, barren gorge 19 km long is surprisingly green and lush valley of Naltar. Some climatic quirk gives Naltar about 410mm of rainfall per year, more than three times that of Gilgit and the valley is heavily wooded with pine, spruce, birch, rowan and juniper.


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.
