Gilgit

Gilgit District is one of the areas of the Gilgit–Baltistan domain in northern Pakistan. It was shaped in 1970 when the government controls Gilgit-Baltistan as the "Northern Areas", limited by the Wakhan Corridor (Afghanistan) toward the north; Xinjiang (China) toward the upper east and east; Skardu, Astore, and Diamer toward the south; and Ghizer District toward the west. The town of Gilgit is the capital of Gilgit District. As indicated by the 1998 enumeration, Gilgit District had a populace of 243,324. The locale incorporates Gilgit (the capital city), the Bagrot Valley, Juglot, Danyore, Naltar Peak, and the Normal Valley. The most noteworthy top in the locale is Distaghil Sar 7,885 meters (25,869 ft), which is the seventh-most remarkable top in Pakistan and nineteenth most noteworthy on earth. Just a piece of the bowl of the Gilgit River, for example, Gilgit Valley, is incorporated inside the political limits of Gilgit District.
