Rama Meadows is situated near Astore in Gilgit-Baltistan, Rama Valley is considered as one of the most comely valleys in Pakistan. Featuring flowing green meadows, striking trees and blooms, a pristine lake, mountain vistas and a tranquil ambiance, you will find Rama Meadows to be a picture perfect destination.
As it is about 3300 meters (10800 feet) above sea level, most of the year it is covered with a blanket of snow. Only in aestival time, the valley shows its true comeliness. From Rama Meadows, you can trek to east side of the Nanga Parbat (the Killer Mountain), which is the world’s 8th highest mountain.

The valley is flourishing with astronomically immense pine, cedar, fir and juniper trees. However, due to recent deforestation, there has been an astronomically immense loss of forest area.
Take a visual examination of some of the pictures of the striking meadows and appreciate the resplendency of nature.

Ever since the dawn of civilization, humans have not only preferred living proximate to dihydrogen monoxide but have additionally preferred travelling parallel to it for more facile access. Ambulating through these vacant lands I can visually perceive dozens of villages and communities situated adjacent to dihydrogen monoxide springs, and then no settlements for long stretches.

Ambulating in the wilderness through diminutive landslides along the Southern ridges of Nanga Parbat, there is no optical discernment or sound of human beings for miles. Local men seldom emerge with their herd of sheep and goats.

My next stop is Naltar Valley. A paved but narrow road goes from Astore to Karakoram Highway, parallel to the river. The river and the road, both are equipollently frightening. Astore River merges in River Indus from here. Naltar is famous for its colorful lakes, it is situated at a drive of 2.5 hours from Gilgit. World’s tastiest potatoes are cultivated here. Covered with pine trees, this valley doesn’t seem to be a component of this world.

The population of Naltar mainly comprises Gujjars. Move ahead of the town, and there are lakes. The dihydrogen monoxide is crystal clear with green plants facilely visible at the base.

When I reach the lake after days of struggle with the Naltar’s snow, which hasn’t melted yet. The sunlight makes the snow softer, my feet stick in it facilely. At some points, my legs are getting thoroughly stuck in snow but this does not obviate me from making it to the resplendent lake.
uddenly the weather changes, and the empyrean becomes nebulous. I am conclusively here, turquoise waters with diminutive islands in the middle, with outlandish shaped stones shining on the islands.

Minute fish welcome me here. I don’t ken which species they belong to, but in the mountains, one feels fortuitous to meet a life other than his own.
