Pir Chinasi Muzaffarabad sits at an altitude of 9,500 ft above sea level. What is most impressive about this mountain is its paved road that makes it easy to reach the summit. You can easily move your car if you have a powerful engine. However, if you take the amazing work of hiking, you will be able to experience the beauty of nature and amazing sights.

Remember that when you start a journey, you are actually going around a mountain. In some cases, it requires strong direct movement while noting the edges.

Road to Pir Chinasi form Muzaffarabad

The road to the summit, also known as Pir Chanasi, is paved. The road is called Pir Chinasi road. This road is usually open all year, but can be closed whenever the access road is blocked by snow. It is a twisting collection of hairpins (more than 30 tan) with very high sections. 

Named after the famous Saint Shah Hussain Bukhari. At times, the road is extremely narrow, with enough space for just one car.

As the road curves and turns at the edges, the nooks and corners produce lush green vegetation that seems almost pure. At each angle, you get a different view of the Muzaffarabad district; its people, and the lives they live. Pearl Continental Muzaffarabad, which sits on top of the entire remote village, is also clearly visible from the highlands of the valley.

In some places, the mountain is very wide. This means a lush green and natural picnic area. Here you can sleep for a while to get some rest. Dense pine trees are a natural barrier to pollution of all kinds. As the temperature rises, the temperature drops and the air becomes thicker and clearer. 

High altitude presents many opportunities to appreciate the environment and the clean environment it creates.

During the colder months, from October to March, the top of the mountain and the trail are covered with thick snow. If you plan to travel during these months, it is best to wear thick snow boots, and warm clothing, and walk slowly as the snow makes the road slippery.

As you climb to the top, you will see that there is only one point of the main line going to the Neelum Valley. The peak is also covered with thick snow most of the year but due to the well-paved road, there is no shortage of tourists. 

The mountain peak has a small canteen and, where you can find one of the most delicious pakoras (tempuras), with a spicy sauce, which when combined with a cup of tea serves as the best food ingredient one can ask for. Some drinks can also be easily purchased here.
