    As you are trevlling from Isl/pindi, better go to piwadhai and get an economical transport to Mansehra. From there get to Balakot, there are hiace in the general bus stand. In Balakot, hop on another hiace (next to balakot petrol pump) to Naran.

    Owing to off season, there is low chance of getting a direct haiace from balakot to Naran but you should check.

    There are plenty of hotels in Naran, you should not worry during this time of the year.

    Do share your experience when you are back.

    the above post said it all.

    i'd add two cents: before leaving, also check (with Naran hotels) if the road is not blocked, as do at times in this time of the year.

    Bonjour from Islamabad,

    Pirwadhai or Karachi company bus terminals run transport to Mansehra, where-from you could get the coaches to Balakot and then upto Naran.

    Keep some warm gear with you the weather forecast is bad for a couple of days, for the travelers to Naran these days.


    Bon voyage..
