The road to Brithawari Gali: 35 hairpins to the top
Brithawari Gali is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.995m (9,826ft) above the sea level, located in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan.
The road to the summit is unpaved and dangerous. Not recommended to newbies. Along the way you’ll have to deal with some dangerous dropoffs. It’s called Leepa Vally Road. It’s a narrow single road with uncountable curves and blind curves so takes some time.
The drive offers stunning views into the forest. Starting from Srinagar - Muzaffarabad Road, near Hattian Bala, the ascent is 34.2 km long with 35 hairpin turns. Remember the rain can start at any time and will not stop for hours. The road is dangerous so be careful in rain and don’t go in the evening. The winter season lasts from November to March. The valley also experiences the rainy season from April to June.
