    My friends and I are planning a trip to Hunza next month .I want to know whether or not Babusar pass is accessible by cars other than 4x4 now because last year they were making a road there .So i want to inquire which road to take to reach Chillas en route to Hunza.

    P.S i have never been to Hunza so where is the last place i can reach on my non 4x4 car

  • Shouldn't I go to Pakistan through China if I'm Chicken?

    by blue_risingsun Online Now Jun 4, 2013 at 7:16 AM

    I'm planning to cross border from China to Karimabad, Pakistan and back to China. But I've made some research and found I have to pass Khunjerab pass which is 4600m high (might be high altitude sickness), terrifying roads, occasional road closing due to landslides, boats which might stop due to rain and wind... I'm thinking that it'll be so tough for me...But is it actually easier than I think? I'm kind of chicken guy but Shouldn't I mind and just go?

    I have been wanting to visit Hunza Valley since the 60's.
    It is on my bucket list. How do
    you suggest I get there from Gilgit? Do I rent a jeep,car or is
    there a bus? Should I stay in Gilgit before coming to Hunza? Or should I come di-
    rectly from the airport? What is the warmest time of year?
    I'm from the States. What do
    I need to get into the country? Pls. email me back
    with information. Oops! Is there a booklet available?

    Thank you so much.
    Or should I just come directly from the airport

    Lahore to Hunza by road...via KKH. Guidance needed.

    by Sabiqoon Online Now May 20, 2007 at 9:17 PM

    I need to seek advice and comments from those of you who have been to Hunza by road.

    I am planning to go to Hunza from Lahore with my family by car on Karakoram Highway on 2nd june inshallah.Since no night time driving is in our plan, our first night stop shall be at Besham where we expect to reach in 10 hours...leaving Lahore by 7 am and travelling on M2, reaching Islamabad interchange within four hours, Abottabad in another three hours and then Besham (three hours more) before sunset inshallah.
    My original plan was to spend the second night at Chilas but I have learned that Chilas is 5 hours from Besham and Gilgit is another three hours from Chilas.So now I assume we can reach Gilgit from Besham before sunset even if we don't stop at Chilas and after spending the second night at Gilgit, we can drive to Karimabad the next day inshalah.Does it sound workable?

    How is KKH in the month of June...landslides?
    I have learned there are bandits robbing cars and other private vehices in Kohistan region...any idea of current state of affairs regarding that?

    It is not possible to drive our cars in to China but can we drive past Sost and upto Khunjerab Pass? Or we cannot drive beyond the customs check post at Sost?

    Any hotel recommendations in Karimabad?---neither the budget class nor a five star...just a good, moderate one.

    We plan to leave our car at some place in Gilgit and fly to Skardu and back.Any comments?

    Flying to Gilgit from Islamabad and back could be less time consuming but that way we won't be able to experience KKH.

    I will be grateful for any guidance that anyone can provide from their first hand experience.
