Spell Binding Retreat to Pakistan

By Road Travel

Neelum Valley About 240 kilometers long the picturesque Neelum Valley is situated to the North & North East of Muzaffarabad. Running parallel to the Kaghan Valley, it is separated from it by snow covered peaks, some over 4000 meters above sea level. Excellent scenic beauty, panoramic view, towering hills on both sides of the noisy Neelum River, flourishing green forests, streams, high altitude lakes and attractive surroundings make the valley tour dream come true.

Gilgit-Baltistan is one of Pakistan’s most awe-inspiring travel destinations. Home to the Eight Thousanders — five peaks of more than 8000 metres including the legendary K2 — and fifty over 7000, this is an abode in the clouds for the adventurous! Gilgit and Skardu are the two main hubs for expeditions to those mountains and the world-renowned Deosai National Park. We can arrange everything you need from either city.

From rugged 4×4 all-terrain vehicles to tents, heating and provisions, plus experienced guides to accompany you on your trek, we can provide everything you need for a safe and exhilarating journey you will never forget. Truly a peak experience! Beneath the soaring mountain peaks, three of the world’s longest glacial formations outside the polar regions are found: the Biaf, Baltoro and Batura Glaciers. There are also several spectacular high-altitude lakes nestled in mountain valleys, their cobalt blue reflecting the azure sky. Sometimes steam rises off the surface of the water. Sust or Sost is a village in Gojal, Upper Hunza, Gilgit–Baltistan, Pakistan. It is the last town inside Pakistan on the Karakoram Highway before the Chinese border. Pakistan and China have opened border for trade and tourism at Khunjerab.
