Previously I was planning a family trip to Murree in Eid holidays but when I heard that traffic and hotel situation is worst during Eid holidays so I have changed my plan. Now I am planning to visit Azad Kashmir specially Rawalakot and Neelum Valley region.
I know there are different threads already running either for Rawalakot or Neelum Valley but as I am making plan to cover both so want information regrading this. As I would be coming from Lahore so I would prefer entering to Rawalakot first from Rawalapindi-Kahota side. It would be great if you can answer the following questions:
1- What is road condition from Riawalpindi-Kahota to Rawalakot - a couple of years back when I went with my office staff road was under construction
2- How much time it would take to reach Rawalakot from Lahore (I want to reach there early morning)?
3- Is it good season to visit this region?
4- In Rawalakot I know the following places:
(a) Banjosa Lake
(b) Toli Pir
(d) Poonch River
(e) Tatta Pani
Any suggestions which places are worth seeing and which should better be dropped (as I want to cover this in same day or max half of next day) to save reaching and visiting time for Neelum Velley
5- What is route from Rawalakot to Neelum Valley and how much would it take to reach there?
6- What are road condition if moving from Rawalakot to Neelum Valley?
7- I would be with my family on my Vitz 2004 - is it good car for this trip?
8- Which places from Neelum Valley should I cover in 1 to 1.5 days?
I hope experts here would help me to plan a good trip for my family as we are going for such a trip for the first time so I want good information in advance to avoid issues after reaching there. Any suggestions/recommendations would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
