Hello fellow Pak Wheelers,
we are planning for a vacation in mid may with my family to a nice hill station. 4-5 other families are also accompanying us in this tour. we shall have kids with us, out of them some are infants. it would be a 4-5 days trip. presently we are planning the following.
Day 1: Lahore to Rawalakot and stay there.
Day 2: Rawalakot to Banjosa Lake and back
Rawlakot to Toli Peer and back
Day 3: Rawlakot to Nathia Gali
Day 4: Nathi gali to suburb areas (pathriata, bhurban, muree etc)
Day 5: Nathia gali to Lahore
I need suggestion from the experienced Pak wheelers with respect to above mentioned program. i have been to Nathia gali and suburbs many times but Rawalakot etc is new to me. need more suggestion about that part of trip. I am told its less crowded there as compared to Muree etc and is no less in natural beauty. I would appreciate any tips, suggestion and advice from members who have "actually" been to Rawalakot, banjosa and toli peer in near past.
Some points to note:-
1. We would be traveling from Lahore to all these places by cars. every family is in his own car. Mine is Suzuki Liana LXI-sports 2007. others are city 2007, coure 2008, mehran 2008, alto 2006 and Santro 2000.
2. we Will be in the company of at least one infant with 3 families
