    AA.

    In my views, the best time would be early July. I was there after Mid July last year. The pass was open. You can keep your bike in the boat to cross the lake.

    And End august/ September will also be good. rains are unpredictable.

    October can again receive snowfall at Pass and would be cool in Hunza and so on.

    Its better you go before moonsoon. Usually rains come after Mid-July. Rains can block ways in the lower part of KKH e.g. Mansehra to Bisham like year 2010. Its better you come back before mid-July to remain on safe side.

    The Khunjrab Pass opening time is 15th June every year.

    Day1 Islamabad-Bisham

    Day2 Bisham/Gilgit
    (daily 10-12 hour drive)


    Day3 Gilgit-Hunza

    (5 hour drive)


    Day-4 Hunza to Passu/Sost

    Day-5 Passu/Sost to Pass and back

    Day-6 Passu to Hunza/Gilgit

    Day-7 Naltar and back to Gilgit (optional)

    Day-8 and 9 . Way back

    .. You have to keep 10 days in your pocket and Rs. 25K minimum.

    Dear Blue horn,

    Are you planning on going alone or with a group of friends?
    I'm asking as a friend of mine and I were also planning on doing a road trip to China a few days ago.

    you have been MOST helpful
    I agree that it would be better to visit before monsoon season as rains may wash off parts of the road. But due to some problems early september would suit me more, should i go. And thanks for telling me about the lake as well.
    I was also thinking of having minimum 30K budget and keeping around 12 -14 days for the whole trip.
    And thanks a lot for giving a detailed plan brother

    Dear brother hamids. I am at the very initial stage of this trip. At the moment I am just gathering info and trying to make a provisional plan.
    At the moment nothing is final for me.

    .

    Obviously you have to load on boat as the cars can't run in the water

    This may help you in understanding the time to reach there (also keep in mind the atta abad lake hurdle ).
