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 beer!

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!
