NATHIA GALI mountains Pakistan

Nathia gali is an area situated around a beautiful street. Kalam Valley is a beautiful valley near Swat River in Swat, in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa state of Pakistan. Kalam Valley is known for its gorgeous waterfalls, stunning lakes and lush green mountains. This valley is a 274 kilo meter away from Islamabad. It is a popular destination for international tourists. At 29 kilometres (18 mi) from Bahrain and about 2,000 meters (6,800 ft) above sea level, the valley opens out, providing rooms for a small but fertile plateau above the river. In Kalam the Ushu and Utrot rivers join to form the Swat River. Here, the metalled road ends and shingle road leads to the Ushu and Utrot valleys. From Matiltan one gets a breathtaking view of the snow-capped Mount Falaksir 5918 meters (19,415 ft), and of another unnamed peak 6096 meters (20,000 ft.) high.

 


 During early nineteenth century, Hunza resented Kashmir's attempts to gain control and its rulers periodically expelled Kashmir garrisons, threatended Gilgit, and politicked with the rulers of Kashgar to the north where the Russians were gaining influence. Fearing Russians infiltration into their northern frontiers, the British took over direct political control at Gilgit in 1889. Incesant fratricidal intrigues in Hunza and Nagar made the areas doubly insecure. This, coupled with the Mir of Hunza's consistent intransigence induced the British to march on Hunza in December 1891, where they fought a decisive battle at Nilit, 60 km beyond Diaynor Bridge. After this the British garrisoned Aliabad until 1897 when Hunza became a princely state protected by the Government of British India. After the Pakistan was created in 1947, the people of Hunza also gained liberation and the princely state was merged in Pakistan.
