If you are not an experienced driver in snow, then we definitely recommend you to hire a car rental company.
In case, you are pro at driving then snow chains are a must to tackle the situation. Snow chains or tire chains are devices attached to vehicle tires to provide maximum traction when driving on icy and snowy roads.
The snow chains are installed on the steering wheel of the vehicle or special systems that can be automatically deployed on the snow chains that swing under the tires.
No matter where you go to the snow, whether it is Swat, Kalam, Murree, Naran Kaghan, Skardu the weather will be good, but it is difficult to predict when it will go bad. Changes in conditions, including fog, high winds, and heavy snow, may happen very quickly, and visibility may drop to close to zero, putting you in a potentially dangerous situation.
Always get advice on weather conditions from the resort staff and pay close attention to local forecasts and their forecasts for temperature and snowfall-snow quality tends to improve coolness and vice versa. Pay attention to any sudden temperature drop. When this happens, it may herald a change in the weather.
If you experience bad weather while on the mountain, it may happen very quickly. Start going to the nearest guestroom to get off as soon as possible.

Driving in winter is dangerous, so it is important to be prepared for driving in icy conditions. Visibility may be restricted and the road surface may become very slippery.
Check your car before you go out. Is the battery good? Are the tires inflated enough? Does your windshield wiper work? If I need to remove deposits on the windshield, will the air conditioner work?
If you have rented a car, please ask the hirer for information about mandatory winter road regulations. Should you drive in low light conditions? Do I have to use snow chains or specific tires?
Always drive according to conditions. There may be black ice on the road, so avoid sudden acceleration or braking. Turn and turn smoothly, and keep a sufficient distance from the driver in front of you in the event of sudden braking.
Give yourself enough time to move from one place to another. Driving in snowy conditions means driving slower than usual.
In the snow season, if you are not driving an ATV, you need to use snow chains. Please consult the rental company or automobile authority for more information.
Try to avoid driving at dusk and at night. Not only is visibility reduced, but you may also encounter wild animals.
If you are driving for long distances, please bring extra food, water, blankets, and a flashlight with spare batteries. If there is a long distance between gas stations, filling up the tank can be very helpful. If possible, take regular breaks to avoid fatigue and join the journey if possible.
Keep your phone charged and carry the power bank with you in case you need it. If you are driving in a remote area, please bring a GPS beacon, because your phone has no signal to receive the signal.
