Safety in Pakistan's northern areas

by Bart » Sun Dec 21, 2008 12:05 pm

Hi all,

A couple of friends and I are looking into the possibilities of heading to Pakistan's northern areas next summer to attempt some climbing there. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me something about the security issues that Western travellers in that region might be confronted with. Our foreign ministry's website issues discourages non-essential travel to Pakistan and warns for possible shia-sunni violence in the Northern Areas.

Any additional information would be more than welcome.

Thanks in advance,

The Northern areas are the safest regions for foreign tourists. The current situation is quite normal and hopefully it will remain normal in the coming summer as well.
