You need a permit to access this Pass. When you go for the permit, some heavily armed soldiers of the Frontier Force will also accompany you.
The reason they join you is security. Don't forget this is Tribal Area. In this area there was (and still is) a lot of smuggling (drugs, weapons,...) and these actions aren't without risk and danger.
