You can get a bus there from Peshawar but have to pay a few rupees to bribe the policeman. you might want to check out Veronique de Viguerie’s story on it on the WpN website. www.worldpicturenews.com and search for “Pakistan Gun Village”

its a pretty cool place though!

Hi Thomas

I have worked in that area just after 9/11 the best place to go is it the tribal areas outside Peshawar I got a fixer to take me there on the side roads as it is not legal to go there on your own.
But I did it with a local fixer so it is possible we made an interview with the Mayer of the town and then he got some of his staff to show us around the town and shops and it all ended up with us standing on top of a house shooting an AK47 at the mountains great fun ….
If you need more info please let me know
The man I used there was :
Sammi Yousafzai his e-mail is sammiyousafzai@hotmail.com if it still works.
and phone nr may be :03204974385
or 03204294626

All the best
