Gabeen Jabba Camping Pods SWAT
In the month of September, 2021, I was researching over the internet for the places to go for my honeymoon to take my wife after my unique & affordable marriage. and I came across this beautiful place in the region of Swat, Pakistan that is called Gabeen Jabba or Gabin Jabba. If you ask me, the maximum 2 nights will be more than enough at this place, anything longer than that it starts to become boring & kind of a drag.
Introduction to the camping pods
The best part about this place that the KPK government has created really beautiful camping pods in a meadow of Gabin Jabba & those pods serve very well as a little upgraded version of camps. These camping pods are are equipped with the basic amenities that are required like fan, adequate beds, alright blankets, lights, hot water in the washrooms and etc. You can have a look at the detailed review of Gabin Jabba camping pods in the video below.
The road to the top
You will leave your vehicle at the bottom & hire many 4X4s & local vans taking you up to the top at the camping pods site as normal vehicles can’t be taken to the pods because of the road’s situation. These vehicles will charge you anywhere from RS. 1000 to RS. 2000 depending upon your negotiation skills. I gave Rs. 2400 both ways.
Condition of Pods & amenities
There are a few things that I would like to mention here that since the camping pods with 2 beds will cost you only Rs. 3000/night & the room with 4 beds is for 5000/night, so don’t expect much out of it. The place is established to give you a sense of camping without the usual problems or issues that a camper faces when doing it the traditional way.
As for the amenities at the Gabeen Jabba camping pods, you will find sufficient enough to make your stay a memorable one. The place has a kitchen with cooks, who’d cook on order. You can choose anything from their limited menu which includes, veggies, rice, meat, chicken and fish for lunch and dinner & omelets, fried eggs and parantha for the breakfasts.
Whats to explore & which Sim card to take
There are certain hiking spots over here where you can work some cardio at but the USP of this place is its serenity & calmness. It’s a great place to unwind if you want to get away from your daily life completely as the only mobile or cell phone signals you will get in gabin jabba is of Jazz, that too at some spots.
