    From Baltit Fort, we went towards Eagels Nest Point. It was highest place there in Karimabad as I know. Views of Valley were great. This point is great opportunity for photographers at morning and evening, but I was there at mid day.

    No, on the day we were to depart just a half hour before loading the bikes received a call that one of our cousin's has been admitted to hosp due to liver failure. So we canceled the trip. This was a week and a half back on Sat. And on this Monday (three days back) he finally succumbed to his illness and passed away. So our trip has been canceled / delayed.

    Last night during the Soyam we were discussing our plans to now leave after Eid, just after the Chelam. But since they are not fond of cold temp they feared that in mid Oct it will be very cold up North so most have dropped out.

    BUTT .... Only one said he is still keen on keeping the tour NOW since he had already booked this month off for the trip and there is still time.

    So now just one of my relatives is ready to leave as early as Saturday, by road on our bikes, just the two of us from Karachi to Khanjerab and back. I have not as yet agreed entirely although all our luggage is still packed and ready but that was for 5 ppl and now needs to be reduced for 2 ppl. But I think we may make a decision by tomorrow (Fri or Sat) at the latest and just GO. InshAllah

    Sir gee, program final karain oor nikal parain.

    But for now I would say, you need to hold for some time. It started rains here and its worst rainfall continuing for 2-3 days. This will ruin your joy. So better, kheer thandi kar lain

    Anyways, keep me updated about your plans, we had some conversation about this before via PM

    Amazing trip and extraordinary photography.
    I have been in Gilgit 5 years ago but always used to travel by Heli never seen by road. We are planing a trip to Khunjrab next year just want to ask which season is good to visit and how is the condition of road overall?
    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

    Thanks Bro,

    It really depends on your taste. KKH is open all the year in normal conditions. If you like greenery, then visit between mid of July and its end.
    Road condition is excellent ahead of Raikot and you can compare it with any excellent carpeted road in big cities or motorway (though not that wide). Before Raikot, its also great, just not carpeted, you can compare it with normal GT road.

    AND believe me, this route worth to travel with your private vehicle
