Getting there & away
Get here from Gilgit on any Karimabad-bound transport. Minibuses leave Aliabad for Gilgit (Rs 90) and Sost (Rs 90) all day, starting as early as 5am and leaving when full. Suzukis go all day to/from Ganish (Rs 5) and Karimabad (Rs 10). To catch northbound transport, Aliabad is a better choice than Ganish as minibuses tend to leave Aliabad when full.
Natco (50111), with an office and depot at the north end of the bazaar, has minibuses to Gilgit (Rs 100) departing at 8am, 1pm and 6pm; the service to Sost (Rs 100) via Gulmit (Rs 30) and Passu (Rs 35) leaves at 11am. If there are seats available, you could hop on the bus to Kashgar (Rs 2700) at about 8am, which originated in Gilgit.
