Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best time is May if the way is not closed.
when i reach there while going to Gilgit there was a lil snow fall and view was mesmerising. Ice on the peaks is melting and every year scenes are different
Once upon a time it was a vacant spot with natural beauty but we humans are making it worst continuously

The Babusar Pass connects Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with Gilgit Baltistan. It is one of the most dangerous routes in Gilgit-Baltistan. Babusar Top was originally known as Babur Top, originating from the fact that the Mughal emperor Babur used to pass through this area in the early 16th century. Nowadays, however, it is commonly referred to as Babusar Top

The road to Chillas from Naran goes above the mountains and passes through the highest point in Kaghan Valley, the Babusar Pass also known as Babusar Top, which is the highest peak in the Kaghan Valley (13,700 ft.). The route to Babusar is on the Mansehra-Naran-Babusar-Chillas highway toward Chillas, the drive is mesmerizing in itself as the marvelous River Kunhar is flowing along the route on the left and the mountain covered with Alpine Forest is on the right. The road till Chillas is paved and smooth, except for some bad patches. Babusar is the highest peak of this route at the height of 13,700ft, and then the road toward Chillas starts ascending. While travelling upward on the mountain the weather starts getting colder & colder. Riding for almost 5 hours, from Naran one can reach the Babusar Pass. This place has frequent snowfall and rain all around the year, except for winter when it is completely blocked and in summer the weather can be sunny and windy. The road to Babusar is open from the middle of July up to the end of September. At the Babusar Top the lush green plains, the clear water streams and the snow covered Rakaposhi along with the Karakoram Ranges can be seen. For those visiting Naran, I recommend them to must visit Babusar Pass. Do remember to bring the camera to have remarkable photography at this place.

Babusar pass is basically a peak of a mountain having height of 13,700 ft which is almost half of Mount Everest. Located just in the beginning of Gilgit. It is almost 35 to 40 km from Borawai. The roads is very well made but you should prefer to go early in the morning to avoid traffic and crowd on the pass.Do look out for the whether, do not travel in rainy conditions as it is extremely dangerous and deadly because of sliding and slippery road conditions. l visited the place with my family and have found it completely celestial..!. The cold chilly wind and fresh air with an extraordinary scene of tremendous mountains covered with light snow and clouds just before the eyes, mesmerised me.! I couldn’t take my eyes off of such a beautiful and heavenly scenery. The top is all clear there are no houses or hotels, just clear ground maybe a suitable place for camping. Some of the areas were covered with snow and rocks, which should be watched out for because they are slippery and may cause severe injury. One must definitely think of visiting the place and experience the mightiest forms of creation of Allah, there is nothing made by humans there, every single area and scene of that place echoes the greatness of Allah. I didn’t wanted to go back as the site had me completely captured but after all one has to reach back home.
I assure you that your effort to reach Babusar pass will be fruitful and you will be dazzled by the amazing scenes there.
I hope my review would be helpful.
Regards

At 13,700 feet it stands high above sea level and gets cold towards the evening. Babusar top point has many stalls selling unhealthy food options. The views are amazing and you can go for a walk. There is not else to do except walks and sightseeing of mountains.

This place has some amazing views of the valley. If you have small kids, don't stay here too long, otherwise enjoy tea/coffee and pakoray here. The winds are really strong and freezing and there is a lot of snow.

From Chilas one leaves the KKH and goes toward Babusar Pass. This is a "short cut" to Islamabad. Given the twisting road and sometimes large pot-holes it is an amazing trip. I think once was enough for me, but maybe I would consider it again if stopping to sleep somewhere. Otherwise, it was a marathon 19-hour drive from Gilgit to Islamabad - might have been less without three landslides. Stop at the pass and try the salt cooked maize, but make sure your blood pressure is okay. Glaciers, glacial lakes, incredible scenery - amazing trip!
