HOW TO REACH:
Location of Ayun Fort Inn:
Half an hour short of Chitral town, on the road from Lowari is the diversion to the Kalash valleys. At this junction you are looking across into the lush green Ayun village. To enter Ayun, you cross the main river on a cantilever bridge, the road then moves through parts of Ayun village and the you start driving along a big irrigation channel this is a sign that you are near Ayun fort turning . As you drive along the channel for a 100 yards you take the first road on your right going up to Ayun Fort Farm and a panorama of the village. If you have missed this turning you will reach a Petrol Pump in 2 minutes who will give you direction.
The Road to Chitral:
By road the journey takes you aprox 9/10 hrs from Islamabad on the motorway . At Rashakai Mardan interchange on the motorway you branch towards swat where at Chakdara you divert on the Dir Chitral road. All through its a good recently laid surface road till Dir aprox 5 hrs , then the next 2 hrs on the Lowari pass its a truckable road through lovely alpine scenery . Once you have descended the Lowari pass 3118m into the main valley you are back on hard top road. The road journey could be long but its very interesting mostly along rivers and streams then climbing up the pass through forests and waterfalls not like the motorway. People use cars, suzuki all kinds of vehicles
