Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (abbreviated as KP; Urdu: خیبر پختونخوا; Pashto: خیبر پښتونخوا) is one of the four administrative provinces of Pakistan, located in the northwestern region of the country along the international border with Afghanistan. It was previously known as the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) until 2010, and is known colloquially by various other names. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the third-largest province of Pakistan by the size of both population and economy, though it is geographically the smallest of four. It comprises 10.5% of Pakistan's economy, and is home to 11.9% of Pakistan's total population, with the majority of the province's inhabitants being Pashtuns, Hazarewal, Chitrali, and Kohistanis. The province is the site of the ancient kingdom Gandhara, including the ruins of its capital Pushkalavati near modern-day Charsadda. Originally a stronghold of Hinduism and Buddhism, the history of the region was characterized by frequent invasions under various Empires due to its geographical proximity to the Khyber Pass.

Connects Kaghan Valley with Chilas via the Thak Nala
Babusar Pass/Top is the highest point at an elevation of about 13,700 feet at the border of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Baltistan provinces of Pakistan. The road is fully carpeted, wide and useable for all kinds of vehicles. Very beautiful sceneries on both sides of the top are waiting for the visitors with cold breeze even in chilled summer.

Have done this several times Hike is 2-2.5 hours and should be fine and doable if you are fit. Make sure you wear good study shoes, preferably hiking shoes and take a jacket along even in summer. Hike starts from near KP Governor House and goes up around 2,000 feet. You go through some very dense forest and some of the hike particularly at the end is steep. Pack a light meal and biscuits and water. A hat or a cap and sunblock will come in handy because at the height (2900 metres) the sun can be harsh on a summer day. The weather can change all of a sudden so be prepared. A walking stick can also be very useful for support. On a clear day you can see as far north as the majestic Nanga Parbat (which is some 90-100 miles to the northeast)
