Nagar (Urdu:نگر) is a town near to the Gilgit Valley in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of northern Pakistan. The town is located in Hunza–Nagar District and was the capital of the former State of Nagar. The town is located at 35°24'0N 73°48'0E with an altitude of 2688 metres (8822 feet).
The Nagar valley is situated at an elevation of 2,438m (7,999 feet). Nagar Khas is the main town and the capital of the former state of Nagar. Ghulmet, Minapin, Chaprote and Hopper Valleys are popular tourist attractions in the Nagar region because of the spectacular scenery of the surrounding mountains such as Rakaposhi at 7,788m (25,561 feet), and Diran, and Spantik peak (Golden peak.) It is situated at front of Hunza.
Following the Hunza-Nagar Campaign of 1889–1892 (known locally as the Anglo-Burusho war) the area passed under British control and then as a vassal of the Kashmir Durbar, but was ruled by the same royal family. In 1974, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto dissolved the Princely States of Nagar and Hunza and gave democratic representation to the Northern Areas Council, now known as the Northern Areas Legislative Council.
