    Trip to Chitral and Northern area

    by imranthetrekker Written Jun 23, 2010

    Favorite thing: Bonjour from Peshawar,

    Isb-Chitral, Idea bura nahin hai.

    There is a coaster service leaves at 9:30 PM daily for Chitral from Pirwadhai bus terminal, arrives in the morning in Chitral, over Lowari pass, road is fine.

    Chitral, Stay at
    Hotel Terichmir view (Mumtaz Hussain, manager) you could use my reference.
    It is a mid-range one.

    For budgeted options
    Hotel City Tower
    Hotel Al-Farooq

    Take a trip to Kalash valleys like Bamborate, stay at
    Hotel Benazir, excellent place, they know me very well.

    From Chitral, take a car to Mastuj, 4 hrs and next morning take a NATCO bus to Gilgit or hire a car start early towards Shandoor pass and stay at
    PTDC Motel Phandar, that takes some 7 to 9 hrs.
    Excellent place.

    For Chitral 2,3 days are enough.

    Happy travels..

    by sarwar2004 Written May 22, 2008

    Favorite thing: are u going alone or with family i means ladies and kids with u???tha is important to add in ur question please.
    If u are going with family i prefer that why u not plan to go to Islamabad, murree,khandyani,abbotabad. I had visit once with family in kagan naran but it was long time ago about 10 years and at that time it was not earthquake problem but we actually not much enjoyed there because there was no fun after sunset.after that i only go with family at murree islamabad each year.

    Baltit Fort of Hunza

    by imranthetrekker Written Mar 21, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Bien venu au Pakistan

    It is one of the monuments of Hunza, located on the top of Karimabad, almost 10 minutes walk from Karimabad to Baltit fort, bulit by one of the Mirs ( Rulers) of Hunza,
    800 years ago.
    Karimabad is located at the distance of 110 Km from Gilgit or 3 hours drive on the left side of Karakoram Highway.
    A detalied briefing would be given by the guides inside the fort with the help of slides about its history and the its periods.

    200 Rs entry fee would be charged at the gate.

    Enjoy the marvels of Pakistan

    Fondest memory: The Mountains of Pakistan

    Pipeline Track Pass

    by Fudge Written Mar 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Pipeline Track is a 4 kilometre walk in nathiagali and along the way, besides witnessing fabulous views, you also get a up close and personal account with wildflowers, butterflies and the sweet incadescent sounds of tiny mountain birds that you can hear but not necessarily catch a glimpse of. They are tiny!

    Do carry ample water and wear a hat as it gets really hot sometimes.

    Easy - Moderate walk, anyone can do it, as it's a paved walk. Just dont be afraid of heights :)

    Fondest memory: I miss Nathia Gali as it was beautiful and the weather changed so many times it was amazing.

    Stunning views at every turn

    Fondest memory: Travelling the Karakorum Highway is always an adventure. Along the road we had to stop because of a landslide. Big stones came down the mountain. We lost almost one hour because of this landslide.

    Fondest memory: When the landslide stopped, local workers cleared the road with a heavy bulldozer. After the cleaning up we could continue our journey.
