Our 9 days Fairy Meadows and Hunza tour package is one of the top-selling products in which travelers can enjoy both tastes of adventure and beauty. Pakistan’s northern areas once again emerged as one of the most beautiful destinations in the world after a long break. These places offer unusual beauty and landscape with kind people of the areas who care for the tourists as their guests.
Fairy Meadows trek is one of them that offers unforgettable adventure alongside spectacular views of the Indus River and mighty mountain Nanga Parbat (8126m). The tour starts from Tattu village and takes around 3 hours with short hikes.
There are mainly three ways to reach Fairy Meadows, and the first one is to reach Fairy Meadows via Naran Kaghan, then take a Jeep from Raikot Bridge to Tattu village, and then three-hour trekking to reach Fairy Meadows. This route considers one of the most practical in exploring and witnessing the beauty from Balakot to Feary Meadows.
The second option is to travel via Karakoram Highway. This route may take more than 14 hours from Islamabad. Tourists opt for this option during the closure of the Babusar pass because, in winter, heavy snow closed the road of Naran and Babusar pass.
The third way to visit Fairy Meadows is to take a flight from Islamabad to Gilgit (1 hour) and travel by road from Gilgit to Chilas and then Raikot Bridge. The best and recommended time to do this trek is April to September. Click Pakistan offers various services to arrange fairy meadows trips for locals and international clients.
