    Default A Journey to the World of Colors & the Land of Rocks

    We are blessed with a beautiful country and I intend to see it as much as possible in this life time. We made a journey to a place which can be truly called the world of colors. An ancient civilization, surviving for thousands of years but on the brink of extinction. The Kelasha Civilization. The main objective was to attend the Chilam Josht festival, a festival by Kelasha people to celebrate the arrival of spring. The Kelasha people are amazing souls on this earth. They don't live their lives they enjoy it. Though it is difficult to imagine once one realize the hardships they face yet they keep on smiling, dancing and singing. The details of tour are:
    <o:p></o:p>

    Day 1 Lahore - Gujranwal - Rawalpindi - Mardan - Dir - Lowari top - Ayoun - Kelash<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Day 2 - Kelasha valley<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Day 3 - Chilam Josht festival and then to Chitral<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    Day 4 - Chitral to Mastoj<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

    Awesome thread, Allah awarded s with best beauty in the World but either we are reluctant to discover it or we are more keen to destroy it by polluting and blah blah
    Life is a chain of moment of enjoyment and Obedience to Allah, not only about survival

    This was really the highlight of the trip in terms of wilderness, road difficulty and thrill. We wanted to start early from Mastuj but as usual couldn't start before 11 Am and there we were handicapped which we didn't know till late evening. We were suppose to cover a distance of about 145 KM to our camp site but frankly never knew what is ahead of us. The initial few hour of the journey were really good. Beautiful weather, not too bad a track and villages after every now and then. after around 4 hours we realized that our average speed is not more than 12-13 KM/hr and there we had our first doubts in mind that we may not make it to the camp site. Though we kept on pushing. After the village called Bang it was totally un-expected. Three major hurdles no or very bad and narrow track, Winds atleast up to 60-70 KM/hour and darkness. At around 9 PM we were some where in Nikerdine area where after negotiating the turns and twist of about 3-4 KM of track in 1 hour and 20 mins finally we hit a turn which was not possible despite our best efforts for about 10-15 mins. We had to back up uphill for about 35 feet to take a turn back.

    On our way we never realized that this part will be full of water in later part of our journey. While going there was only few inches of water in and about 30 ft wide but on our return jouney the water and slush was atleast 12 inches and good 70 ft in width.
