Assalam o alailum everyone
It is highly appreciated that you guys take time to answer the queries of people who want to enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of Pakistan. Hats off to all of you and keep contributing (Y).
This year I am planning to visit Naran, Shogran and Kaghan. Unfortunately, I have the time slot between 25th April and 5th of May and have to plan accordingly. I will be traveling from Karachi to Islamabad and then further north.
Almost all of my research on northern area has been done on internet and you guys have been significantly helpful. However, still I have some queries which are listed below.
1. An obvious question, will the road to Naran be open by end of April keeping the current weather condition in mind? I am planning to go with PTDC transport and they are not sure yet they can provide transport at end of April.
2. Is there any place online from where I can check the road conditions of Naran regularly?
3. PTDC motel Naran and Aracadian hotel seems to provide better service and atmosphere. Is there any drawback in choosing these hotels other than price? And are there other better options.
4. What are the activities to do in Naran during end of April to 1st week of May? Will Babusar top and lake saif ul malook be reachable or not? Will the way from Babusar- Chillas- Gilgit open during this time frame.
5. What are the best/comfortable options to travel from Naran to shogran and from Shogran to kaghan and from Kaghan back to Islamabad?
6. If Naran tour is not possible in my time slot (25th April- 5th May) then what you guys would suggest for northern tour? Gilgit-Hunza , Swat-Kalam, Murree-Nathia gali etc
Waiting for your replies.
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.
Assalam o Alaikum guys
I have to plan a trip to northern areas with about 8-10 people for 10-12 days. My target destinations would include Murree/Nathiagali, Shogran (including Siri Paya) and Naran (including Saif-ul-Maluk, Lalazar, Babusar if possible and Dudipatsar if possible.).
I need your expert guidance whether I should visit in second half of May or second half of August which would be better considering the cost and weather?
I'm from Lahore and will leave for Islamabad on Saturday afternoon Nov 1st with my partner. but I can't find any local transport or bus service for Naran from Islamabad/Rawalpindi on 2nd of November. Please if anyone know of any bus service that can take us from Isb/Pindi to Naran on 2nd November please share the contact details thanks in advance .
How long does it take from Islamabad Airport to Nathia Gali and Murree and how much do they charge for transportation?

We have selected the dates of end September.
Will it be feasible?
