Gilgit Baltistan Atractions

Pakistan is a paradise for tourists.Some of Pakistan's great attractions are Gilgit beauty.
Gilgit has been a historic place and has remained a hub of all activities from the ancient past. The monument of liberation (Yadgar) from British Raj reminds us of the wonderful sacrifice of the local people who fought with bravery and annexed Gilgit/Baltistan to Pakistan in 1947.
Another attraction is to visit hydel power station and fish hatchery. There is one of the tallest waterfalls of NAs near the suspension bridge of Kargah. The place offers superb views and can serve as a picnic spot, in the vicinity of Gilgit town. Danyor, located on KKH is also connected with Gilgit town by a suspension bridge followed by a drive through a narrow tunnel, a really thrilling adventure. At Danyor, a rock listing the carved names of Tibetan kings, who ruled the area in the 7th and 8th centuries is interesting while another place of importance is the memorial graveyard of Chinese workers, who lost their lives while building the KKH.
