On the other hand, Bagrote Valley is an experience for peak lovers who wish to exercise their trekking muscle. The valley also houses the Danyore Valley Suspension Bridge constructed over a century ago, leading into the tunnels constructed by Gilgit District's locals. Gilgit District is strategically nestled between Chilas and Karimabad just off the Karakoram Highway. The valley is home to many cultural and historical memoirs that are testament to the existence of the Silk Route in the district.
The Silk Route opened doors to not only the trade of goods but also to a deeply enriching melange of cultures, ideas and skills which makes modern day Gilgit District a junction of civilizations and religions. It was immersed in Buddhism centuries ago and travelers can still hear echoes of its religious influences all over the valley. Just 10 kilometres from Gilgit is the Kargah Valley that boasts a statue of Buddha intricately carved into a mountain dating back to the 8th century.
