Best Time to Visit Hunza & Skardu

Best Time to Visit Hunza and Skardu

Despite Hunza Skardu size, weather patterns are largely the same across the Northern areas of Pakistan with defined seasons similar to those in Kel, Sharda, Toabutt, Kalam and Murree. While there are variations – mountain ranges attract higher rainfall and snow in some areas than others – it’s cold everywhere in winter and warm in most locations in summer. The summer months are most popular, offering sunny days and pleasant temperatures. Springtime starts in late April through to early June and can be a delightful time of year to visit, with gradual snow melt revealing forests and wildflowers and a re-emergence of Karakorum’s wildlife from the long winter hibernation. September’s considered the peak of the salmon run, attracting large numbers of bears. It also marks the start of autumn, with spectacular fall foliage lasting into October.

Month-by-Month guide to travelling in Hunza & Skardu

Visiting Hunza & Skardu in January – March

The weather is unquestionably cold at the start of the year, but if you’re prepared and have packed appropriately you can enjoy the many activities and festivals that take place during the Hunza & Skardu winter. There are popular cultural and sporting events and some incredible wildlife experiences, but perhaps best of all is the amazing phenomenon illuminating the dark winter skies known of course as the Northern Lights.

Visiting Hunza & Skardu in April

A good time to travel to Hunza & Skardu, with improving weather and longer days. The west coast in particular feel more pleasant. High up in the Rockies, the ski season is at its best with sunny days and blue skies. Elsewhere in the country, the chill of winter starts to disappear but weather can be unpredictable – be prepared for a variety of conditions.

Visiting Hunza & Skardu in May

Warmer weather, fewer crowds and lower costs make May a good time to visit Northern areas of Pakistan. There’s still some chill in the air, but with the snow largely gone and spring flowers blooming many lodges start to reopen and national parks become more accessible, allowing visitors a chance to explore in relative solitude before the peak season starts. This time of year is also perfect for Snow Peaks sightseeing and spring blooming.

Visiting Hunza & Skardu in June

June is, for many, the ideal time to visit Hunza & Skardu. The full peak summer season hasn’t quite started, but the days are warm and long. Hiking trails are open, the lakes and rivers have thawed and wildlife is increasingly active. In the north of the country, parts of the Naltar, Deosai and Northwest Territories that have previously been inaccessible because of snow open up to uncover mountain ranges, forest valleys, lakes and glaciers waiting to be explored.

Visiting Hunza Skardu in July – August

The long summer days offer opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors through the wonderful hiking, boating, camping and fishing opportunities available across the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Summer festivals, including Cultural Day of Hunza and the Sports event, take place, and outdoor dining is popular in towns and cities.

Visiting Hunza & Skardu in September – October

The weather is comfortable in autumn, and the changing colors of the fall foliage are spectacular. Most outdoor activities can be enjoyed and temperatures, though cooler, are still pleasant. It is a great time to visit Altit Fort in particular; with fewer crowds and the stunning autumn colors along the Baltit and Shigar Fort. September also sees the start of the salmon run and is consequently a good month to witness bears fishing for migrating salmon at Deosai National Park. October starts to get colder still, but offers the chance to spot polar bears as they make their way back from their summertime habitat.

Visiting Skardu & Hunza in November – December

The days are darker, snow may have started falling and the temperatures drop with the onset of winter. Despite this, November and December are still lively months, with holiday season festivals.

Road Conditions of Hunza & Skardu 

From January to March snowfall expected in most parts of Gilgit Baltistan so do check weather forecast before leaving for Hunza & Skardu. Babusar Top opens at end of June or in Mid of July so you required to travel through KKH which could be tiring Journey if you not enthusiast of long roadside travels.

How could we help Pakistan?

In era of communication and social sharing’s, media is in hand of every single citizen and English is the common writing and understanding tool all over internet. Let’s help Pakistan! How it is possible? Let me discuss.

Blogging.

Write about Pakistan’s inspirational stories, current affairs, political situation, health, entertainment, sports and travel. Bring a positive image of Pakistan and promote your national interests.

Photography:

Every city of Pakistan had some possessions which are good to share like if you are in Lahore then share monuments, historical places, and cultural things. If you are in Karachi then share sea ports, buildings, hopes, smiling faces. Share beautiful things.

Charity Services:

Work there focuses primarily on enhancing livelihoods, improving access to water and sanitation and responding to emergency situations. Have some time for charity services, organize events to promote hygiene, child welfare, counselling, education and disaster management. Some of Pakistani’s already working on this but every Pakistani should been part of it.

Entrepreneurship:

Promote entrepreneurship rather to go for jobs, do what you want and make it profession. Promote local products, go for solutions and manage everything in a better way.

 

Religious thoughtful:

Study Quran and Hadith so you could understand the true version of Islam. You could decide what is good and what is bad. No other narratives which are bogus could make your minds dirty. Spread religious harmony.
