Hotel Terichmir view (Mumtaz Hussain, manager) you could use my reference.
It is a mid-range one.
For budgeted options
Hotel City Tower
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.
For Chitral 2,3 days are enough.
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.
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
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.
In Pakistan,U absolutely must visit Northern Areas of Pakistan.By the way,most of tourists come to Pakistan only to visit the Magical Northern Areas.
Pakistan has rich cultural heritage and contains some historical cities as Lahore,Multan,Peshawar etc.
Visit Kafiristan, situated in the North of Pakistan, this is the place where its said that Alexander the Great left part of his army. Ever since they have settled there and have very interesting customs and a very unique lifestyle.
Fondest memory: Hanging around with my friends in Lahore, the most livliest of cities of Paksitan.
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.
