Bagrote Valley is a valley in the Karakoram Mountain range in Gilgit–Baltistan. Shina language is spoken and understood in all villages of Bagrote. The river flows through this valley that is Bagrote River, supplies water to Jalalabad and Oshikhandass and merges with the Gilgit River.

Tourist visit this valley mostly in summer. The valley is about half an hour's drive from Gilgit city. This valley is known for its fruits and vegetables which it supplies to city Gilgit. Ice from the Glacier is supplied to Gilgit city in summer from this valley, as there is no ice factory in Gilgit. The ice is brought from the Glacier of Karakoram range. The villages of Hamaran, Sinaker, Datuchi, Bolchi, Chirah, Farfu and Hopay lie here and are interconnected by an unmettalled road. Villages on either side of the valley are linked via cable cars (allowing for easy transport of goods and livestock) and the river passes underneath which comes from glaciers of Karakoram Range.The means of economy is agriculture. However with the recent construction of the Karakorum Highway, the area has been exposed to western civilization, with small cinemas, retail outlets for mountain equipment and apparel, and small hotels opening to facilitate visitors. However the area is completely Muslim, and tourism rates dropped dramatically after the events of September 11. The people here also grow wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, apples, pears, apricots etc.
