Stak valley

Stak Valley, situated to the north of Nanga Parbat (8,125 m), is a wonderful, spectacular and breathtaking valley. This valley is located in the middle of the Skardu and Gilgit city on the Gilgit-Skardu road and right bank of the Indus River.

The valley is the biggest valley in the "Subdivision Roundu" with an around about population of 15,000. It takes about two and half hours to reach here from either Gilgit and Skardu city. 

The valley has been one of the very main regions of the area in terms of history and of geological formation as well.

Geography of Stak valley

On the right bank of the Indus River and the Gilgit-Skardu Road, the Stak Valley is located in the midst of Skardu and Gilgit City. The Askore Valley and Thwar Valley are located east of the Stak Valley.

The Tooklano and Chamachoo are in the west. Indus River and Ganji Valley are located in the south, directly across the Indus River from the Stak Valley. Haramosh and Kutia Glaciers may be found in the north and northwest, and Goropha Glacier can be found in the northeast.

The Stak River rises from the Stak-La, joins the Goropha, Kutia, and Tooklano Streams, and after roughly 30 kilometres of flow, empties into the Indus River. 

The Stak Valley is divided in two by the Stak River. Starting from Khirzang to Tookla on one side and Rgialmokaza to Skangbudas on the other. The final town of Stak, Tookla, was substantially devastated by a devastating flood that struck the region in 1999. 

This flood completely destroyed Gamba Tookla and partially demolished Gongma Tookla. Although the valley is one of the fertile valleys of the Roundu Subdivision, geologists claim that the majority of the villages are built by the moraines.

Tourist attractive places

One of the gorgeous and panoramic locations to visit is called "Broq of Stak Nala" in the local dialect. It is a high altitude place where sheep, goats, and different animals are cast-of for grazing.

 Natural waterfalls that are 100 metres high, a beautiful, green forest filled with alpine, conifer, and juniper species, wide, lush green plains, and a sizable portion covered by the "Kutia Lungma Glacier" may all be found in one location.
