Hispar is a village in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, located two kilometers below the snout of the 49 kilometer-long Hispar Glacier. It can be reached from the Karakoram Highway by the road that leads south of Hunza towards Nagar (Nagir), Hopar (Hoppar) and Hispar, though in August 2006 this road was washed out at the confluence of the Hispar and Hunza Rivers, eliminating all vehicular access to the valley for a month or two.
