Lets start this most amazing of adventures - the north of Pakistan. Let‘s cross the Islamabad toll point and continue on a journey that changes all perceptions of this wonderful country.
Before leaving Switzerland, I did a lot of research on the north of Pakistan. I wanted a tailored tour which would allow me to relax and yet not to miss some amazing sights. I came across @baydaartravels and contacted them. Once I got the itinerary, I was pleased and opted to go with them. The response was quick, my questions were answered, but on the downside, the lack of certain logistical information and the frustration which came with the transfer of cash due to lack of communication did irritate slightly. If you are coming from an European “all organized” mindset, this might be slightly annoying, but one needs to take into mind, this isn’t Europe and things are done differently here. I would advice the group to add into their itinerary, the duration, the distance, so that the organized Swiss can breathe easy. It is hard just to go with the flow sometimes. Maybe it is also my nature, and I like being informed about everything step by step.
The communication was always friendly and prompt, so, definitely I went with the group, with an open mind. That meant, if there are unforeseen plans, if the Pakistani fellow tour travellers sleep in and there is a delay of one hour to leave, if there is no hot water in certain places, lack of heating, wifi not ideal; then just go with it. It will not be different elsewhere. Put your music on, smile and look at the views. That is only what I was here for - the breathtaking beauty of Pakistan
We were heading to Chilas, left around 3am and would reach there almost 15hours later, in between we made a stop first at Besham city for much needed spot of breakfast.
