FAQs - Booking Quetta flights
The city centre, mainly, is flat and easy to traverse on foot. There are plenty of magnificent and historical buildings in that area that the tourist would enjoy exploring. Going beyond downtown Quetta would require you to have a car of your own. It is best to hire a driver and a vehicle from a company of good repute. The driver would demand around £2 per day for his services. The tri-wheel rickshaw can zigzag and zoom through the city’s congested roads, so opt for one if you are in a hurry.

The airport in the city and its namesake is the Quetta International Airport (UET). Every year half a million passengers are using this airport in Northern Balochistan. Quetta Airport is in the northwest of the main city centre, approximately 15 kilometres by road, which takes 40 minutes to travel due to traffic congestion, so plan accordingly.
As far as the weather goes, the ‘Goldilocks range’ of average temperature is from 20°C to 30°C, and Quetta experiences these temperatures twice in a year. The first good weather phase is from March to May and then the second is from September to November. Rain is never really a problem in Quetta. Tourists and Pakistanis settled abroad also tend to visit the city in these times as well as in the height summer season even though the temperatures in June sometime go beyond 40°C.
Quetta is strange in the sense that, while the mountains on all four sides of the city are dry and barren the town itself is surrounded by fruit gardens and fields. The karez system of underground channels supplies Quetta with water, making it an oasis full of nature’s bounty.
- Hanna Lake is about 20 kilometres northeast from the city centre of Quetta. Mountains and trees surround the lake. Since the lake is a popular tourist destination, there are plenty of makeshift hotels and stalls selling Baloch regional delicacies right on the edge of the lake. The Hanna Lake is a favourite for Kayaking when the waters from the snow melt replenish the reservoir in early spring. A lonely island floats in the middle of Hanna Lake, which turns white with the wildflowers in April.
- Not far from Hanna Lake is the Loe Nekan peak, which is the highest mountain in Balochistan. Not only does the mount catch a massive bulk of snow but when the snow melts the waters irrigated the fields and the wild vegetation at the base of the mountain. The wildlife and birds that call Loe Nekan a sanctuary attract birdwatchers and nature lovers to the area as well. Loe Nekan is at an altitude of 3575 meters from sea level.
