seeking advice for hotel accommodation

by cairoteachers Online Now Jan 19, 2007 at 2:29 AM

My husband and I are planning on visiting Gilgit for a few days in Jan. We are wondering if you can recommend a clean, warm hotel for five days stay. Also, any advice on day trips, things to do, etc, will be greatly appreciated. My husband is somewhat familiar with the town of Gilgit. He lived and worked there on a student assignment ten years back. I am sure much has changed since then. Your updated information will be really helpful and we will be much obliged for it.

Thank you

    Two well know hotels in Gilgit are PTDC and Serena. Plus there are a lot of other accomodations avaiable.
    There are a lot to do depending on your taste:

    from Gilgit: Naltar Valley, Shandur Pass; Hunza all the way to Khunjerab.

    I would suggest get Footprint Pakistan's KKH handbook which will provide you with a lot of info about this region, and visit other VTer's pages; see link below:

    Bonsoir mes amis,

    If you're looking for expensive and nice places then I'd recomend to go to

    Riveria hotel
    Chinar bagh, Gilgit.
    ph: 05811 54184

    Mid range

    Park Hotel
    Airport Road

    Budget

    Tourist Cottage
    Chinar bagh

    Medina hotel
    Close to NLI chowk.


    Karimabad, Passu, (Hunza) freezing these days, even Gilgit so you can go and enjoy the snowy weather conditions, on the other hand, it's not the time to go to Naltar or Shandoor pass 3127 m, because it's closed due to excessive snow.

    I wish you all the best in Pakistan.

    If you want something nice, clean and comfortable try Lost Horizon Guest House. It was about13/night when we last visited in September.
