It is in human nature to travel to different places and learn different things. The need for adventure is in every human being. The Northern Areas of Pakistan are full of natural beauty, thousands of tourists visit the Northern Areas of Pakistan every year. For those that want to travel to the Northern Areas of Pakistan Hazara Motorway provides a great and safe path to them. Taking the famous Naran-Babusar road is also another option but the down side is that it is only open for 4 months while the rest of the time it is closed due to adverse weather conditions. So when this road is closed taking the Hazara Motorway is your main option.
You can also take the Karakoram Highway but be ready for traffic. Instead you can save a lot of time by taking the Hazara motorway.
