Ask Pamir hotel nearby for the key to the fort. the guide will show you around and explain what each room is. the history is fascinating (need to read online about it as there is no local brochure unfortunately). check the letters in the prince's office sent to and by the British to the local princes.

During my visit to Pakistan and Chitral Valley, I visited the fort with my friends. Chitral fort is a historical sight but due to a lack of proper maintenance and care, the fort looks like a deserted place. If properly managed it can become a great tourist attraction.

Chitral Fort
Please bear in mind that the weekly holiday is on friday and you may find places closed.
Rated as average because with care and restoration it can be a 4 star.
We visited at 5 pm and the caretaker told it was now closing time. He was kind enough to allow us to look at the outside area. The view of the river is fantastic. Three guns of about 3 inch bore facing the river. Here again with guidance, Placards, historical record this place can be made much more interesting.
The Owners live in part of the fort. It needs maintenance. We have to protect our heritage!

Prior permission is required fain access to this fort. The fort has three segments, including barracks of the troops called guards in the past, secretariat, and residential area annexed to the garden on the riverside with an exclusive gate. The outer and major part of the fort is in dilapidated condition as repairs have never been done in recent past.

Chitral fort is located on the bank of river Chitral and visible from the town.
Chitral was a princely state in the olden days and merged into Pakistan in 1969 so the rulers of the state were known as Mehtars, Chitral fort dates back to those days and still standing there telling the tales of those days.
It was under siege in 1895, the famous siege by an invader from Afghanistan, Umra Khan.
The fort is adjacent to Chitral royal mosque.

I have had the chance to visit the fort ad I was staying in the hotel just in the vicinity and the staff concerned at hotel were good enough to give me a guided tour of the forte. The fort however has not much to offer as it has not been prepared a tourist attraction.

The Chitral fort is situated on the banks of the Chitral River. The fort was built by Raja Nadir Shah in the 14th Century. It was restored in 1774 during the reign of Shah Afzal II and again in 1911 by H.H. Shuja-ul-Mulk . The Fort was used as a residence for Mehtar Family and for military purposes as well.

After the merger of Chitral state in 1969 with Pakistan it was declared personal property of the last ruler of chitral. . It is now occupied by the current ceremonial Mehtar, Fateh-ul-Mulk Ali Nasir who has renovated the old Darbar Hall and state rooms following damage sustained during the earthquake of 2015.

The travelers & Tourists are not allowed to visit this fort but on special request a visit can be arranged.I have been to this fort once.
