Smile Pakistan

Although the western media wants you to believe this is a very dangerous place loaded by terrorists, go there and make out for yourself. I beleive there's much more dangerous places in the world in terms of criminality for instance. Yes, there are some assaults, but like in the rest of the world these are caused by a small group of people. Just listen to the locals who will be happy to tell you where you can go and where you better shouldn't go. We felt safe everywhere we went and felt very welcome. There's areas where people depend on tourism, so help them by going there, you won't regret.
Pakistan is an yet undiscovered gem with most hospitable and friendly people, and the north is simply magnificent and great for motor riding. A real adventure!

There's some great places to stay:
500 roepies for a double
safe parking and first place after Iran serving cold !

Regale Internet Inn
200 roepies per person
very friendly and helpful management
WIFI, rooftop terrace
secured parking 5 minutes away

Aashiana Hotel
600 roepies for double (low season)
the best hotel we had, with all conveniences in reach
parking, WIFI, heater and hot shower!
very friendly staff

Madina guesthouse
490 double / 190 dorm
again very nice and interesting people who run the guesthouse
internet and safe parking

Karimabad Hunza
World Roof Hotel
400 roepies
safe parking and a balcony to your room with a mindblowing view on some of the mighty peaks of pakistan!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
