Khunjerab Pass Routs from Islamabad
There are two routes to get to Khunjerab pass from Islamabad via road.
This route is used to get to Hunza, Khunjerab pass, Astore, and whole Gilgit Baltistan in winters. The road is under construction and quite bumpy from several areas. The driving distance from Islamabad to Khunjerab Top Pass via the Besham City route is 855 km and it takes around 17 hours. Additionally, this route has fewer steeps than the Babusar top route.
Islamabad to Khunjerab pass top via Babusar top is accessible only during summer. This route has many touristic destinations, such as Shogran, Naran, Kaghan, Saif-ul-Malook Lake, Dudipatsar Lake, Ansoo Lake, Lulusar Lake, and Babusar top Pass. On the other hand, the road gets quite busy in Naran, also the road faces traffic jam in Naran near Jheel road. The road is much steeper than the Besham route and less bumpy after Naran. The driving distance from Islamabad to Khunjerab Top Pass via the Babusar top pass route is 770 km and it takes around 16 hours. The engine of your car must be in perfect condition, as there are several road steeps near Babusar top road where cars get heat up and stop working.
Enjoy the stay and lush green Naran and Kaghan Vally. You can roam around and do the shopping at the Naran Bazar. Moreover, if you want to hike and enjoy the best view of the valley, it is also possible. The distance from Naran to Khunjerab pass is 488 km, it takes 5 hours and 42 min via road.
However, it is open only in summer, so if your tour is in summer (April-Oct) then we’ll use the Naran route if we’re traveling via car. Otherwise, we’ll be using the Besham route with KKH (Karakoram Highway).
Babusar Top is a marvelous tourist attraction point, with 4,170m height above sea level. However, it is open only in summer, so if your tour is in summer (April-Oct) then we’ll use the Babusar route if we’re traveling via car. Also, the distance from Gilgit city to Khunjerab pass is 270 km, it takes 5 hours from Gilgit city to Khubjerb pass. However, we will be making a stay to relax, so the next day we could continue our journey.

Since you’re staying in the Nagar Valley under the Rakaposhi glacier, it’s time to visit the Khunjerab Pass. It is better to leave early in the morning around 9:00 am in our private car. It takes around 4 hours to finally arrive at the Khunjerab pass. We will be passing through Aliabad, Hunza Valley, Passu cones, Attabad Lake, Sost.
