    • Visiting Chitral in winter/ February

      by ahad9211 Online Now Feb 4, 2015 at 3:04 AM

      Me and my friends are making a plan to visit Chitral in next week. I want to ask if the weather conditions are suitable? Can we travel by a car which is not 4WD? Places to visit in Chitral? What are the views about KAFRISTAN valleys during this season? Where should we have our main stay? What is the best route? What are conditions of road and is the tunnel open or should we take the pass?
      Thanks in advance.

      July Visit / Chitral

      by besal Online Now Jun 1, 2014 at 1:57 AM

      I have been asked to lead a group of families with Children to Chitral. This group is one which does not like long travel, will prefer good lodging and food, comfortable travel.

      Now Chitral had been in my list to visit for a long time, and now I need to know some basics:

      1/ transport: Is the Lowari tunnel open for business, or one still has to go over the pass.
      2/ Safety: What is the situation on ground?
      3/ Lodging: Good places to stay in Chitral, and in the Kalash Valley
      4/ Places to visit, and July weather condition

      If I had been travelling on my own, some of the above questions would not be asked, but have been asked to find out before a final decision is made by this group.

      Dear traveler,

      Can we use other vehicle than land cruiser jeep?
      Can we use a car like Ford Ranger 4x4 passing through high passes like Shandur or even Khunjerab pass?

      Thanks in advance,
