Karakorum Highway (A wonder on the earth)

In the north of Pakistan lies a mountainous region containing some of the world's most incredible scenery and mountain reaching the extreme altitudes like 7000 - 8000 meters & above. Between 1966 to 1978 it was for the hard work of Chinese and Pakistani engineers that a road was built above the shoulders of these gigantic mountains. More than five hundred lives are buried under this marvelous road which is known all over the world for its beauty and variation in terrain and culture. The highway runs along the river Indus and later continues to Gilgit and Hunza valleys. Each stop of this highway will definitely force you to admire it.

One can take a tour of 7 days going across KKH visiting the worlds most beautiful areas like Kohistan, Gilgit, Hunza, and Skardu. There are nice PTDC motels on main points and cities of the Highway A typical tour will take you from Islamabad to Besham overnight at PTDC motel Besham located on the Bank of Indus river. Later you continue to Gilgit staying there for a night and than spend two days in the Shangri-la ( Hunza valley ). It is recommended that you take the same way back revisiting this wonderful street. though there are flights available from Gilgit to Islamabad but depend on weather, hence usually are cancelled.

Testimonial:-I would like to commend your role in timely arrangements of my visit to shogran & Naran. I felt deeply satisfied having this arrangement through your company; it was far far better than what I had thought of. The things promised & reality on ground matched with each other which adds beauty to your arrangements. I have not experienced any better tour organizers(than your company) in Pakistan.
