Chitral Forst is a wonderful historic treasure, but unfortunately has been neglected. Recently, the interior of the fort has been renovated, but due to certain restraints is not open for the general public.

Chitral Fort is has greater attraction for visitors given its unque architectural style from defensive and administrative point of view. The fort was constructed by the 'Mehtars' or princes of the Katoor dynasty. The fort is stretched on an extensive area on the bank of roaring Chitral river under the cool shadow of centure old huge trees of Chinar.
