In Chitral District, Chitral Gol National Park is located. The park is situated beside the Chitral River, which is at a distance of two hours drive from Chitral town. The park has three valleys and many glaciers lie in the park through which several springs make their way and form a stream of 18 kilometers. The stream has cold water, which flows towards the east into the Chitral River. The drive to the park features a winding, rocky dirt road, so be prepared for a bit of a bumpy ride. That said, the rising altitude affords spectacular views of a sweeping landscape. From Chitral City nestled in the lap of the surrounding range (keep an eye out for the airstrip!) to the grandeur of rolling mountains reaching towards shockingly blue skies - scenic is the word I'd use.
