Northern Areas – Reservations/Hotels – Bookyara

Pakistan is a nation of genuine regular excellence, home to some fabulous mountain tops, lavish green scenes and archeological destinations for the really inquisitive. There isn’t much else you could want from a definitive experience objective yet tragically (or luckily for those fortunate few) because of the measure of negative press Pakistan gets, it is as yet immaculate by western the travel industry.

Wild Frontiers have a profound association with Pakistan. It was here, in the Northwestern Frontier, that our Founder Jonny Bealby incubated the arrangement for the organization in the last part of the 1990s. From that point forward we have made a trip to the uttermost districts of Pakistan looking for new undertakings and encounters.

From those various voyages, we have arranged what we believe are the best places to visit in Pakistan.

CHITRAL:

Settled inside a fruitful valley underneath the powerful Tirich Mir – at 7,700m the most noteworthy mountain in the Hindu Kush – Chitral Town is a comfortable spot, possessed by warm and inviting individuals. An energetic market, a considerable lot of the slows down and cafés run by Afghan evacuees, leads through its middle to the little airstrip toward one side and the polo field at the other. The old mud fortification, scene of the popular British attack, actually lay on the banks of the Chitral River close to the Shahi Mosque. From here the underground aquifers of Garam Chashma, the Kalash Valleys, Mastuj and the Shandor Pass are on the whole available.

Deosai National Park
Prestigious for its rich greenery, the Deosai Plains lie along the elevated steppes of the Karakoram-West Tibetan Plateau. Throughout the spring, these prolific fields are covered in large number of brilliant wildflowers that draw in a tremendous multitude of butterflies to their amazing sprouts. The most elevated level on earth, spread across right around 3,000 square kilometers, it sits at the limit of the Karakoram and western Himalayan reaches and its striking biodiversity has acquired it the honor of a public wild park.

FAIRY MEADOWS:

Pakistan is blessed with areas of matchless beauty and Fairy Meadows can easily be considered one of the most beautiful locations in the region and is an absolute must on the list of places to visit in Pakistan. 

It requires a hike of approximately three hours but the views of Nanga Parbat, the 8,000m plus Killer Mountain, are very rewarding. You will have the best views of Nanga Parbat from Fairy Meadows sitting comfortably in a cost log cabin.

GILGIT:

Gilgit, found inside Gilgit Baltistan area, is unquestionably no postcard town. Enclosed by distinct dark mountains it conveys the harsh sensation of a spot cut off from the remainder of the world. Notwithstanding, since the launch of the Karakoram Highway and the Kunjarab Pass, the old shipping lane among China and the subcontinent has prospered leading to an abounding marketplace loaded with weird merchandise, creatures and individuals. It’s anything but a heavenly spot to watch outskirts polo, a wild form of the dynamite sport where hardly any, rules apply.

HUNZA:

The area known as Hunza lies on the ancient Silk Road to Kashgar and today the Karakoram Highway follows the same route, with Karimabad being the region’s main town. This small, mountainous region was, until recently, a semi-autonomous state but is now fully unified with Pakistan. It is named after Prince Karim Agha Khan, the spiritual head of the Shia Ismaili Nizari community and is one of the most beautiful areas of Pakistan. Cricket, Pakistan’s national sport, is often played in the streets and as the people are famed for their friendliness and hospitality you might be asked to take part in a few overs.

Pakistan is a beautiful & Colorful country having the greatest northern areas of Pakistan. Tourists love to see the natural beauty of our country. May our country be blessed always ameen

Gilgit-Baltistan

From Naran to Khunjerab pass this trip was not only full of scenic beauty, but what made our stay truly memorable is the hospitality of its people and the fun we had on our way as we set out on our road trip. We sang along, laughed and shared amazing moments together.

It was 31st of October, and a bright sunny day, we set trip to the northern areas of the country.
We made our journey across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to Gilgit Baltistan (GB) all the way up to Khunjerab Pass.
It was a bumpy ride to Naran but I had the most amazing experience of drinking pure canal water. Finally when we reached our hotel parhena cottage in Naran the next morning as I woke up I was totally mesmerized by the lake view cottage parehna covered by the beautiful green mountains which looked like a slice of heaven on earth. Our group comprises of journalists were all playing and enjoying there as we all needed vacations too badly
After spending a day in Naran
We left early to reach Chilas on time,
On our way, we stopped at Lulusar Lake, a beautiful body of water at a distance of around 40 to 50 kilometres from Naran.

I salute our Pakistan Armed forces and intelligence who safeguard and maintain a peaceful environment for us to explore the exquisite beauty of our country by fencing our borders in extreme weather conditions and sacrificing their lives at borders to protect our homeland.
