Glacier.

main access points into the Upper Hunza Valley (also called Gojal Valley) from the north.

Pass (or Lowari

high mountain

pass that

connects Chitral with

pass to enter Chitral,

jeeps cannot cross so men must travel by foot. This is dangerous, as there are high
mountains on each side of Lowari Top, and a deadly avalanche can come at any moment
without warning.
Nevertheless, Lowari Top remains popular because it is the shortest route from Chitral to
Peshawar. The other way would be down the Kunar River to Jalalabad through hostile
Afghan Territory or the much longer route across Shandur Top to Gilgit.

Pass is

a mountain

pass in Malakand

Malakand Pass to the plains around Mardan.
