Visit of Carghah Valley
The valley is located on the road to Basin, tourists from all over the world come to Gilgit-Baltistan to visit this valley. A Budha Statute had been built on Tibeteen style on a high rock by the Buddhist and historically reported it was inscribed in fourth or fifth century. It is said that the rulers of Kashmir and a group people came to teach and learn Buddhism. This Buddhist Gandharara is quite different from the architecture of civilization and is also a rock-maker in such a Buddhist era.
