Shandur road opens after winter closure

Shandur road opens for 4×4 vehicles

BOONI (UPPER CHITRAL): The road between Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan, which remains blocked in the winter, is now open but only for 4×4 vehicles.

The office of the deputy commissioner of Upper Chitral stated on Wednesday that two jeeps arrived in Mastuj from Gilgit-Baltistan. However, it added that there was still heavy snow on the road and only 4×4 vehicles could be used to travel between the two areas.

The snow on the road on the 10,230 feet high pass is melting, making the road slippery.

Shandur pass connects the Laspur valley of Upper Chitral with the Ghizer district of Gilgit-Baltistan.
