      Earlier the PIA operated 11 flights a week from Peshawar and daily one flight from Islamabad but now the number of flights from Peshawar has been reduced to six while Sunday’s flight from Islamabad has been diverted to Gilgit-Skardu route. Besides, the only one flight on Saturday from Peshawar has been shifted to Peshawar-Kabul route

      the only way to reach chitral in this time of the year is by road through "lowari-tunnel"

      Waleed bhai your right.

      Road trip is better, it works out cheaper and while the way is not as safe as it used to be, you can still make it before some of the passes are closed.

      Beware though sometimes the passes can freeze and leave you stranded in valleys almost lost in wilderness... but for me back in the day that was the most magical thing.

      Trust me if you want to see valley Kalash by air your best off doing it in the summer.

      In winter it's suicide... if aything the Winds will tear any craft to pieces or drive it into the rocks.... you might as well.

      Besides you'll enjoy it more if you walk in.

      Okay a simple question.....can I travel by air during summer? Travelling by road gonna take up too much time and with kids I guess plane is safer coz I've heard the roads make you feel dizzy and giddy.

      Sure travel by air is best during May-June period it's hottest time of year in Pakistan but it will be a cool relief for you if you head north.

      Waissay you can travel anytime after March right up till August but after that the winds get sharp as razors and the winter is too dangerous for air or even road travel... only the very toughest should go by road in winter and even then you can get caught up in storms or worse.

      Allah bless you, i'm sure you can make it with providence and good fortune but it's best to go around May-June.

      ^I'm planning for my next visit to Pak and this time I'm taking my kids with me....may be next year around mid March inshallah. I plan to go to China from Uk and then from China to Islamabad and then Kalash and then Lahore.....I always had this desire to visit Kalash valley. I hope everything goes according to the plan.

      Insha Allah it will all be great.

      Wow thats not bad at all... how are you going to China and where abouts?

      I recomend southern China if it's your first trip there... Western regions are more sparse and lawless but still exceptionally beautifull.

      I love the area around Xingjiang and also further north as well.

      If you travel to Xingjiang area let me know i have a lot of knowledge about that area....

      Since you say that you want to go from China to Islamabad doubtless you'll be making your trip via Karakorum Highway right...

      And I wish you all the best, who knows i might even make the trip myself again theres some unfinished business....

      Thanks for the info.....

      Right now I was only checking the ticket prices and through China it doesn't cost much ...may be extra £200. One of our friends married a chinese girl and we are planning to travel with them so I guess they'd be a lot helpful but if they drop their plans out I'm definitely getting your help inshallah.

      Cheap flights: search and compare airfares at JetRadar

      I flew from Islamabad to Chitral last October (2011) for a project . Flights are open these days and close only for 2-3 months in winter. Flight was breathtaking as snow was accumulating in hill tops.

      I again tried flights in April this year but they were cancelled after issuing boarding cards. Flights are usually cancelled due to less passengers than weather issues. I had to take cab from Islamabad to upper Dir and then the company I was working with for which provided a 4X4 to take me to Chitral. It took 11 hours from Ism to Chitral. Return flights were also cancelled and I had to take same road route again. Weather was pleasant in April with no warm clothes needed at that time. So no guarantee of flights taking you to Chitral and coming back as per ones plans.

      I went to chitral this year, though i went by road but checked for flight availability for any future trips
      there is one flight every day between peshawar and chitral, reaches chitral in the morning, and returns after noon, takes 45 minutes

      I took this picture of chitral airport on the way to Birmohlusht.
