    Default 16400feet-Snow mountain climbing on my PradoTZ V6



    Guys.. Went on my Prado TZ V6 petrol all the way from Hyderabad Sindh to the extream Norths- Kashmir and Gilgit agerncy ! 16400 feet above sea level- no track no road- all extream offroading to a unknown destination somewhere near Nultur in search of a ski point my father used to ski when he was training for a snow survival course back in 1975 in pakistan Air Force... we were astrayed and in confusion went on and on with my family alone on prado with no track all snow high till we reached the peak top of the mountain.. we were alone my father, me, my mother and sister and no other vehicle to assist..


    Ascending was difficult used low range 4x4... traction was way dangerous on the narrow path we waded all the way to the top of the mountain in the snow but real task was descending the mountains where a couple of times the departure angle was so deep that it felt like falling from the sky when prado skided...


    Miracalusly , we made our way after 7 hours of extream adventure to the ski point... here are some of the pics took.... if there was another vehicle to accompany and to take pics and video while i was driving--- it would have been great to share with you all..


    Prado is no doubt a very reliable yet luxurious off-road character which even made a moderate driver like me to do such extream off road adventure with family...

    Dear Dawar


    The pics you have posted are of Pir Chanasi (Muzaffarabad), I can imagine the the road condition after snow . You must be a very Good driver and a very Lucky person as I saw many 4x4's powerfull then Prodo failing on this track in winter/snow season.


    Keep tracking and good luck.

    Its approx 2 hours drive from gilgit city to nultur and then towards Iskhowan from their about 25-28 km up high takes about 2 hours of very careful drive... the kaccha path is their to the ski point but the place we went was something else.. unknown and even highier then the ski point which my prado altiutude meter showed... the way was all snow covered till the ski point and that what distracted us which led us to drive on Bare snow covered mountains with no track or indicator except the compass on board... My father is very good at judging Snow texture and so he guided me all the way...


    I started off from Islamabad to Muree to keran .. muzaffarabad... pir chanasi... the neelam valley for kashmir trip and then further on back to Abbotabad --butkhela road to head towards gilgit...

    uploading family pics on open froum is not good,
    may be abused
    "The messenger of Allah said: "Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the zakat, to fast in Ramadhan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so." He said: " You have spoken rightly", Jebreel (Gabriel) from Number 2 of "Al-Nawawi's Forty Hadiths."

    I have been tracking Pir Chanasi since 1991 when there was no ROAD, some sections of this raod never see sun light and snow there becomes hard and slipery like glass, I can see fresh snow on your track which helped your in getting some grip.

    Excellent adventure Dawar, must be one hell of a trip.


    I have climbed to 17,000 feet and know that it gets really hard to breathe starting from 15,000 feet onwards due to decrease in oxygen. furthermore, i understand that you need a specially mixed fuel for high altitudes which is capable of producing a spark at low oxygen levels.


    thumbs up to you and your family. must be a great adventure.
