Havelian is the second largest municipality in the Abbottabad District, in the Hazara Division, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It serves as the headquarters for Havelian Tehsil. The word literally translates into English as "mansions". The outskirts of the city are also home to one of the largest ordnance factories of Pakistan, Pakistan Ordnance Factories Havelian. An ordnance depot also exists in the vicinity of the city and the factory.


Havelian is located on the Karakoram Highway and on the banks of Dor River, about 15.5 kilometers south west of Abbottabad.[1]


A large population of Havelian speaks Hindko Pahari, Gojri Potohari & Kashmiri. However, due to deteriorating law and order situation on the western borders of Pakistan, the Pushtuns from FATA have also settled in and around Havelian causing Pashtu to be widely spoken throughout Havelian. Also, an influx of refugees from Afghanistan has brought the Afghan dialect of Persian and Dari to district Havelian.


Havelian's main public transport consist of auto rickshaws, modified Suzuki pickup vehicles, tongs, which can accommodate anywhere from 8 to 13 people at a time. Taxis and automobiles for hire are also available. Vans and buses are frequently used for connecting Havelian to the surrounding cities and towns in the region.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif performed a groundbreaking ceremony of the Hazara Motorway, the road link of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, on November 29, 2014. The 60-kilometre-long, 4-lane fence opd expressway will cost Rs33 billion. The Hazara Motorway will reduce the drive time from Islamabad to Havelian to just 30 minutes, additionally providing a road to the Havelian Dry Port project. The project anticipates hundreds of thousands of employment opportunities, possibilities of new business ideas, and a socio-economic uplift of the whole region. CM KPK Parveez Khan Khattak announced a bypass from Havelian to Damtor and another bypass from the Havelian city to Havelian Village. The CM also announced a network of roads in Havelian.[2]


Havelian is the last railway station while traveling to the northern areas of Pakistan in KPK province.

Havelian is the terminus of a branch railway.

In February 2007, consultants investigated the construction of a railway link to China. The line would cross the 4,730m-high Khunjerab pass.[3]

A former railway to the east was cut by partition with India.


Agriculture and business are the main occupations of the people in Havelian. A significant number of people are also employed in the ordnance factories and ordnance depot, however, the factory boasts its own housing area separate from the old city known as POF Colony
