Bamboret Valley Road
Bamboret Valley Road is a rocky access trail across the mountains located in the Chitral District of Khayber Pakhtun khuwah, in northern Pakistan.
The admittedly narrow and often dilapidated road is gravel and rocky. This is definitely not a Sunday drive. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. Winding along the Bamboret river and skirting around the the Hindu Kush mountain range, the challenging road is pretty steep. It’s 7.9 km long ending near a town called Batrik, at 2.082m (6,830ft) above the sea level. 4x4 vehicle recommended. One day the road can be ‘smooth and easy to drive’, the next, it can be full of washboards that will bounce you right over the edge if you aren't careful. The road was built in the 1970s. It’s usually blocked due to flash floods.
