Early Booking of hotel in Naran / Balakot
What is the road condition from balakot to Naran as I have travelled last year in June-12, and there were some bridges under construction, and road at few places was damaged
Hi Guys I am planning a trip to Naran, Kaghan etc from Karachi. We are family of 7 adults. We plan to take a Karakoram train from Karachi to Lahore and then may be take a Daewoo bus from Lahore to Islamabad. I have figured out this much however I have no idea how to get from Islamabad onwards. I was hoping the experts here help me plan this trip and recommend places to visit and stay. We plan to do 5 - 6 days trip. I would appreciate your help choosing the best sight seeing that we can do in these days. I have seen pictures of Naran, Kaghan, Shogran, Saif Ul Malook etc but I have no idea how geographically dispersed these are from each other and even if it makes sense to do all these in one trip. Your help figuring this out would be highly appreciated. Note that we have never done this before and probably never will after this trip. So we want to hit the maximum spots possible. Regards Nabeel

Could someone please refer me hotels suitable for families in Abbottabad, Naran & Shogran. I have mentioned some points below that might give an idea of what I am expecting: * Suitable for families with a safe, decent and friendly environment. * For 3-4 people per room (extra mattress is acceptable). * The rooms should be neat and clean. * Neat and Clean washrooms with Commode & hot water available. * Restaurant with good food. If possible then please provide the tariffs or rates for the hotels too. And also if someone has pictures of the hotel rooms, then that will be of great help. Another thing, there are kinda rest houses, lodges, holiday homes, etc also present in these areas. If anyone knows about any of these which is suitable for a family group consisting of 20+ members, please mention that too (rates, pictures). I am very much interested in that option as well.
