The flight to Gilgit is a 1-hour flight but it always depends on the weather condition it does not operate in bad weather. The drive to Chilas is 12 hours on the 8thwonder of the world Karakoram Highway an interesting journey. The other best option is10 hours via beautiful Kaghan and Naran Valleys over Babusar Pass 4170 m. This is possible ( Mid-June to Mid-October).

Finally, if you are short of time then you can go straight back on Karakorum Highway to Islamabad and your home destination. My suggestion is to take the road on the back if you have flown on the way up. Above all, There is history on the road you will learn about Pakistan and its past. On the other hand, there are mind-blowing highlights along the Indus River. The ancient rock carving was left by the pilgrim, conquerors, travelers, and many more.
