Aliabad (Ali Abad, Urdu: علی آباد ‎) is the administrative and commercial center of the Hunza–Nagar District of Gilgit–Baltistan, Pakistan (formerly in the State of Hunza, Northern Areas).

Location[edit]

The town is located in a relatively wide section of the Hunza Valley, in the northeastern corner of the Karakoram range, between two forks of the Hunza River. In May 2010 government officials warned that the nearby Attabad lake was close to flooding the area.[1]

Like most localities in Hunza–Nagar, Aliabad lies along the Karakoram Highway, which crosses this mountainous district.
