The Karambar has its origin in the Karambarsee at . The Karambar initially flows through the Ghizer district in an easterly direction, later it turns gradually to the south and south-west. From Ishkoman it flows south for the last 40 km before it joins the Gilgit near Gahkuch (this is called Ghizer above the confluence ). The Karambar has a length of 120 km. The river valley forms the border between Karakoram in the east, Hindu Kush in the north and Hinduraj in the west. The course of the river is fed by the rivers Bara Gah (from right) and Phakor (from left) by numerous glaciers, including the Chhateboi glacier on the right and Chillinji glaciers and Karambar glaciers on the left.
