Visiting Northern Pakistan has become a must for many intrepid travellers as it is beautiful and flights to Pakistan from the UK have made it easy to travel to.


Although Pakistan is a country which can be enjoyed most of the year, you’ll probably want to avoid the Winter as snow can cause attractions to close and temperatures can drop quite rapidly.


Whatever the season, you will definitely encounter incredible views, sights, scents and people.


Day 1 – Islamabad


Flights to Islamabad are available from Southall Travel. Approximate travel time from London is from 8 hours with a non-stop flight.


Take it easy on day one by soaking in culture and history at the Cultural Museum, ready for the adventure that awaits you. Tickets to Pakistan unlock a world of possibility – where could your two weeks take you?


Days 2 – 4 Islamabad to Skardu


The busy international airport offers daily flights to nearby Skardu with a travel time of just one hour. Why not rent a car and enjoy everything that Skardu has to offer? You’re spoilt for choice for wonders to see from the plains of Deosai to vast areas of lakes. Why not take a relaxing boat ride at Upper Kachura Lake or cool down with a dip in the water? Let your mind, body and soul relax while taking in the sights and sounds of this peaceful open water area.



Day 5 – Skardu to Karimabad


A six-hour drive from Skardu to Karimabad dominates the schedule on day five, but the Karakorum highway is a fascinating route and is the highest paved international road in the world – not something you get to travel every day! The full length of the route also connects Pakistan to Western China.


Day 6 -7 Karimabad, Hunza and exploring the villages


Located in the Hunza region, you’ll find Karimabad. The mountainous landscape dominates the whole area, with all the mountains being over 7,000 metres high. Karimabad is very liberal in comparison to other areas of Pakistan and you’ll enjoy the laid-back feel. Tourists can be found visiting the two historical forts of Altit and Baltit. If you enjoy hiking, day hiking routes are available to scenic spots such as Passu Village.



Day 8 and 9: Minapin to Gilgit


Just over an hour’s drive from Karimabad, you can find Minapin, a lovely small village which has breath-taking mountain views like Karimabad. Minapin also offers the opportunity to hike to Rakaposhi Mountain’s base camp.


From Minapin, Gilgit is a further 51 miles away (just under a two-hour drive) and will act as a gateway to Fairy Meadows.


Day 10 – 11: Gilgit Valley and Fairy Meadows


Fairy Meadows is just divine and visiting Gilgit opens up the opportunity to visit this area of thick, beautiful grassland and spectacular mountain views. In fact, in this area, you will be spoilt for choice for views with so many areas to explore on foot. You could easily spend two weeks in this area alone, but why would you when there is just so much of Northern Pakistan to explore?


12 – 13 back to Islamabad


Internal flights to Islamabad are available via Gilgit and when you arrive back in the city, take in some sites in this bustling area, such as the Shah Fasal mosque and Pakistan monument.



14 – End in Lahore


After a whistlestop tour of Northern Pakistan, end your trip in the cultural capital of Lahore via another internal flight.


Rich in history and art, unwind and reflect on your two weeks by visiting famous landmarks such as Badshahi and Wazir Khan mosques, refuel with fantastic cuisine available on the Mall Road food street before heading back on a direct flight to the UK.
