Getting there & away
If you’re planning to come to DI Khan by road from any direction, you should first check with the PTDC, the deputy commissioner’s office or the police in the nearest large town, as there is little government presence in this area. Travel after dark is especially not advised.
The road from DI Khan to Quetta (630km), via Zhob (15 hours by bus), Qila Saifullah and Ziarat, is recommended. The road passes near the Waziristan Tribal Area, and permits are required. Peshawar-bound buses leave from the bus station at the corner of Topan Wala and East Circular Rds. PIA has a daily flight to Peshawar.
