Ayun Fort, Ayun
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Guesthouse
Home to Prince Maqsood Ul Mulk, this charming seven room guesthouse sits on the site of the old fort of Ayun, at the entrance to the Kalash Valleys, an hour south of Chitral Town. Surrounded by a stunning garden with epic views of the towering Tirich Mir, the highest mountain in the Hindu Kush, you couldn’t wish for a more relaxing place to stay. All the rooms are stylishly decorated, with decent en suite facilities, there’s a lovely balcony from which to take in the views, and a charming dining room in which traditional Chitrali food is served. An old friend of Wild Frontiers, Price Maqsood is a wonderful host who can regale you not only with stories about the history of his family but also about the many variety of roses in his garden, not to mention over 60 pines and a peaceful fruit orchard.
