“Life Time Experience”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We missed our flight from Islamabad to Gilgat. So we have to go by road. We really enjoyed the travel. At the end we are very much happy that we missed the flight. We started at 07:00am and reached Gilgat at 10:00pm.The travel time can be reduced depending how you are exploring the KKH. The every inch on the KKH is full of beauty and adventure. You can easily find the best restaurants and tea shops on the way. Our first phase was from Islamabad to Gilgat. The second phase was from Gilgat to Hunza. That part of KKH start with the bed of river Indus. That part is full of fruit trees. The fragrance you enjoy, will remember for the life time. Plan your visit in the last weeks of May or the first week of June. You will enjoy fresh cheers. People are friendly and helpful. We want to go again by road.
