Geographically it has Rakaposhi ( Raki poshi) and its glacier from where people from Gilgit fetch Ice for commercial purposes.

Now 2/3rd of the road is metalled and the rest is in a condition that even a small car can travel on it. The valley blessed with numinous springs, gushing rivers, lofty peaks, glaciers and best part is organic fruits and vegetables. The last village is known as Sath Gasunar (also known as Gasunar valley, must visit point). It has jumping point for trekkers to traverse Haramosh Valley.

As per story tellers, the actual fairy-meadows lies in this area. In local language "Daiayal" , a male/female selected by fairies, after sniffing smoke of junipers tree leaves starts talking to the fairies. Fairies tell "Daiayal" future and also give solutions to the problems of people.

Tourism and economy

Tourists visit this valley mostly in summer. The valley is about half an hour's drive from Gilgit city. This is the nearest tourist destination to Gilgit. The side of the Rakaposhi mountain towards Bagrot valley is better for camping due to the lush green forests and less crowd. This valley is known for its fruits and vegetables, also for the glaciers and high peaks. Vegetables, fruits, and other seasonal crops and Ice from the Glaciers during summers is transported from the valley to the capital Gilgit, myths suggest this ice has healing powers. So far no ice factory is working in Gilgit region. Ice brought from the Glacier of Bagrot is even transported to Ghizer District .

The villages of Hamaran, Sinaker, Datuchi, Bulchi, Chirah, Farfu, Hopay, Ghosonar, Sat, Gargo and Sililii lie here and are interconnected by an unmettalled road. Villages on either side of the valley are linked via cable cars (allowing for easy transport of goods and livestock) and wooden bridges, the river passes underneath which comes from glaciers of Karakoram Range.The means of economy is agriculture. However, with the recent construction of the Karakorum Highway, the area has been exposed to western civilization, with small cinemas, retail outlets for mountain equipment and apparel, and small hotels opening to facilitate visitors.

Locals grow Wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, apples, pears, apricots etc. in the valley.[5][6]
