      Transport- pakistan

      by spudiemcmurphit Online Now Mar 11, 2015 at 3:12 AM

      So the time is getting closer to travel to pakistan (two weeks). I have all my paper work in order but unfortunately there are no tours that I can find. Does anyone know how I can get around the North west region (Gilgit and Baltistan) without a tour or if there are any other reliable tour companies besides snowland that offer tours North of Islamabad. Is there reliable, safe and cheap public transport? Your help is much appreciated.

      Safety in Gilgit Area?

      by wooodman Online Now Apr 9, 2008 at 12:33 PM

      I am thinking of doing a mountain bike trip through Gilgit, Hunza Valley, Naltar, Ghizer Valley, Buni, and Chitral with a well established tour company and was wondering just how safe this area is? I am from the USA and all we here is the negative side of what is going on in Pakistan. I know there can be problems anyway in the world, but I’m just trying to put my mind at ease. So any info would be greatly appreciated.

    • 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

      No question just thanks!!

      by DavidRose79 Online Now Jun 23, 2004 at 6:06 AM

      Many of you who read this forum might have noticed my questions in the last few weeks. Well I thought I would just write and thank you all for your help! I am now in Tashgurgan and am very sad to leave Pakistan. We had some excellent small treks in the Hunza valley, and met load of really friendly people, I have to say it has been the best bit of my travels so far (2 months in Pakistan and India!). Everyone was extremely kind, helpful and interested in us and it is very sad that there aren't more people going to the area... but I will spread the word!! Looking forward to going home now and updating my travel pages!!! Regards, Dave

      Recent Troubles in Gilgit and Hunza Valley

      by DavidRose79 Online Now Jun 8, 2004 at 2:18 AM

      Hello, I am currently sat in Lahore about to travel north along the KKH but have just heard about the Shia demonstrations in Gilgit including the road blocks that they have made. The British Foreign Office have now upped their warning to all 'non-essential travel' in this area. Does anyone know what is actually going on, or maybe been there recently. Is it wise to avoid for the time being? Thanks! Dave

      China into Pakistan or the other way round? I'm considering to cross the Kunjerab pass on the Karakorum highway around Mai 1st. Now the last big constaraint is the possible snow cover and pass closure. Anyone knows some reliable sources where to enquire about the last few years, when the pass was repopened and what exactly are the criteria? Some insight would be great, thanks.
