Chitral is widely considered to be the safest areas of Pakistan. Pakistan dealt with the several challenges which made situation in KPK a bit uneasy, however it has improved a lot lately and road trips are safe. The outset of Lowari Tunnel brings little relief to commuters. Foreigners can go to Chitral from Islamabad and now enjoy the scenic route. Sky is usually clear from May to September which minimizes the chance of flight cancellations. Be aware of street crime and always protect your belongings.
We wish you safe and happy travels!
