A day trip to Nathiagali - Galiyat from Abbottabad

Hits: 653

Nathiagali is a popular destination from Abbottabad because of its proximity and excellent road conditions. The driving distance is about 25 km that can be covered in one hour. Late February summons the beginning of spring in Pakistan. The snow starts melting on the mountain tops and days become warmer.  The nights, however, can get very chilly with temperatures dropping below zero degrees. The road between Abbottabad and Nathiagali is well maintained and snow is removed from the roads on regular basis.

Visiting Multan in Punjab, Pakistan

Hits: 732

Multan is probably the second-best location to visit in Punjab after Lahore. With rich cultural history, amazing foodie adventures and beautiful shrines, Multan is definitely a destination to be explored in late Autumn and winters. I planned a trip to Multan in January 2022. My focus on this trip was to explore the foodie joints in Multan as well as visit some historical locations in the city. For foodies and road trippers, Multan can be an amazing destination for a weekend break.

Driving from Lahore to Fort Munro

Hits: 984

I came across an interesting video of Fort Munro this year and added this amazing destination to my travel list for 2022. With international travel restrictions relaxing towards the end of 2021 I planned a holiday to explore southern Punjab in Pakistan. The weather in most parts of the county in winters (November to February) can be very cold. With cold winds blowing from Quetta (Baluchistan) in December, the mercury drops substantially and most of the hilly locations in Baluchistan and Southern Punjab experiences sub-zero temperatures.

Hits: 1173

Camping and Glamping are becoming a popular way to explore amazing locations in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. With easy access to most places of interest due to improved road conditions and public transport, camping offers adventures and an alternative way of enjoying the beauty of some great scenic locations in Northern Pakistan. In the past, most of the camping-related activities were a group organized by adventure clubs and societies. 

The trend for camping and outdoors has picked up in recent years with several solo travellers exploring remote locations of the country on their own. Travelling a small group is always is a good idea as some of the locations are very isolated and not easily accessible the rescue services in case of emergency.

Fairy Meadows Gilgit Baltistan

The drive to the Fairy Meadows is a treacherous one. As we approached the clearing through the alpine trees, we got our first view of the 8125m high fortress of rock and snow-clad Nanga Parbat (9th highest peaks in the world), the pain of the bumpy ride and trekking through the burning sun vanished in an instant. The fresh mountain air and breath-taking views explain why this stretch of land is called The Fairy Meadows.

Visit to Skardu ,Upper Kachura Lake and Basho Valley

In late April 2019, I decided to explore the Skardu area with a few friends. The weather is still cold in the North as the month of March marks the beginning of spring. The snow on the mountain tops thaw and feed little brooks and rivulets which join the major rivers in the region. Early spring is a great time to explore this region, as the tourist season has not started and you find only commercial traffic on the roads. Most roadside hotels offer off-season rates and you get great services at the cafes and restaurants.
