The Astore Valley has an area of 5,092 kmĀ² and is at an altitude of 2,600 metres (8,500 ft). The valley has approximately 250 square kilometres (97 sq mi) of glacier cover. The nearest glacier after entering the valley is the Harcho Glacier and the most accessible glacier is the Siachen Glacier.

In the past, due to rough modes of transportation, there were some negative perceptions about travel in the Astore Valley, but nowadays there are paved roads connecting Islamabad and Gilgit by way of the Karakoram Highway. However, landslides and rockfall may still be issues in some areas of the Indus Valley. There is a permanent road to Gilgit, as well as seasonal road access to Skardu via the Deosai Plateau. It's now possible to obtain several types of vehicles (jeeps, SUVs, taxis, and wagons) and to hire jeeps and SUVs at affordable prices. The most used vehicles are jeeps and SUVs, with a local preference for Pajeros and Landcruisers.
