    Ride with uber or careem then.... since the journey from isb to Lahore is long and it's summer time as well.... you should consider air conditioned cars only...
    Else you can simply go to faizabad adaa and find rent a car or pickup service there.

        O railways ! I have so many fond memories. Tezro, Shalimar, Tezgam. Now I feel so lucky I got to experience them.

      My guess is Rs 12000/- round trip for a Family of 4, at least that is what I paid 2 years back for a two day trip plus food and lodging for the driver, and I also paid for the Gas.

      it is almost the same as what you pay on Daewoo Bus!

      In our case the driver was a family friend!

          Well, how many planes do you hear that get crashed in a year? Perhaps 1, 2 possibly 3? Do people stop traveling by planes? No. Similarly, how many passenger trains have you heard of that got derailed in Pakistan over the past year or so? 1 or 2? So lets just leave the derailment danger aside. More people get killed in vehicle crashes every month on Pakistan's motorways than on railways.

          Why am i defending the railways, no not cos of Saad Rafiq or Sheikh Rashid. I love traveling in train. I love the freedom it offers and i love the chugging sound of the engines. I have traveled via train many a times from pindi to jhelum and beyond. Yes the unhygienic pakoray at the Lala Musa station are to die for and the rustic, idyllic scenery that the PR offers as it travels thru the heart of Punjab cannot be ignored either.

            I know best I experienced in the 80's was Shalimar from Lahore to Karachi in 16 hrs, they serve you food in your seat!

            And also went from Jehlum to Quetta on Bolan Mail back in 1959, when it passes by Mach in Balochistan had to get the Steam Engine attached for the high torque going up hill! it was still so slow that the staff would walk along the moving train going from bogie to bogie serving fresh breakfast!

            Nothing wrong with the service, but the track between Lahore and Pindi needs fixing!
