Sir cant tell much about route from karachi to lahore but from lahore onward you can use the M2 till islamabad. or the oher option is you can use M1 and turn towards abbottabad. then you will reach mansehra, balakot, the journey till balakot is perfectly fine. road condition is good.
from balakot onrward the real steep uphills start. depends on weather, if its raining then u might gonna come across landsliding.
God be with you, Best of luck!!!

@Waqas1 sureee. no problem. :slight_smile:

Karachi to Lahore is covered in 18-20 hours.
Karachi to Rawalpindi in 22-24 hours.
If you want to stay at lahore then go there or else direct to Rawalpindi.
I went to lahore from karachi and my route was…
Karachi-Hyderabad-Sukkar-Sadiqabad-Bhawalpur-Multan-Lahore

Jbtw the road condition is excellent till Naran.
drive safe, wear seat belt, belts & tool kit for the car.
