I am currently in Gilgit. Speaking to local officals, cops and tour guides, the consensus isL
Apparently the convoys have ended and potential for violence has subsided, but the biggest risk is to buses. There are still lots of people stranded waiting to fly, but this is Shias, who were targetted on that bus attack, who are too scared to come back to Islamabad by bus.
Gilgit is swarming with checkpoints, at most junctions but feels fairly safe
Obviously this is a fluid situation.
Might see you going the opposite direction!
