"Near Besham on the KKH." Besham Qila by jillikins

Besham Qila Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 7 photos

Over the Shangla Pass

Over the Shangla Pass, and what an experience, this is the winding road to beat all others. Besham is a transport junction, and has a main road choked with trucks and buses, a bit of a nightmare, glad we weren't driving

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A comfortable, peaceful spot for a break at our out of town motel.
  • Cons:The town is on the busy KKH, so don't find a bed there if you want to sleep.
  • In a nutshell:Worth a stop for some R&R.
  • Last visit to Besham Qila: May 1998

    Not many pages on Besham! But this one is brilliant! Keep up the good work. Brilliant pic of Motel Garden!
