Pakistan: Hindu Kush Festival Adventure

Pakistan is a country close to our hearts - and for good reason. Home to some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world, thriving cities, colourful markets and warm hospitality, a trip to this part of the world is bound to excite even the most worldly travellers.

Having run trips here for more than a decade, we understand the political complexities of travelling to this fascinating country and our paramount consideration has always been the safety of our clients. Despite the negative images painted by the press, we believe that most areas in Pakistan - particularly around Chitral and the mountains of the north - pose little or no danger within the current climate.

On this amazing journey along the Northwest Frontier you will drive up from the capital Islamabad, through some stunning scenery up to the ancient kingdom of Chitral. Here we will spend two days with the Kalash - witnessing the amazing festival of Joshi - before heading on over the Shandur Pass to one of the most beautiful places on earth, Hunza. We will then continue our circuit to Gilgit and back to Islamabad.

Please note that the itinerary and overnight stops may vary on the different departures so please see the individual dossiers for details.

Highlights:

  • Spend two nights with the Kalash and enjoy the Spring Festival
  • Watch a game of frontier polo in Chitral
  • Relax on top of the world in Hunza surrounded by giant peaks
  • The spectacular mountain scenery of northern Pakistan
  • Travel over the Shandur Pass


Tour Includes:
  • Full services of a Wild Frontiers Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
  • 15 breakfasts, 14 lunches, 14 dinners (typically in local restaurants where viable)
  • Drinking water throughout
  • All transport (minibuses/coaster buses, jeeps and domestic flights if they are operating)
  • 15 nights' accommodation (12 in hotels, 3 in a local guesthouse)
  • All entrance fees, sightseeing, excursions and activities as per the itinerary
  • A carbon-offsetting contribution to Carbon Clear (if booking international flights through WF office)

Carry something warm over the Shandur Pass - it can snow even in July.

Make sure you take a torch - power cuts still happen fairly regularly.

Take a bandana, the landscapes are unreal but the roads can be a little dusty.

If travelling by jeep ask the driver to take the roof off - you'll see a lot more.
