Im planing to visit Deosai in the first week of July with family. Our ride will be a Toyota Hilux Double-Cabin SSR-X, 4x4 (standard setup. No lift kit and snorkel etc). We are planing to visit Rama lake and then move onwards to Deosai via Chakor Pass. There is however one big (rather deep & fast) hurdle in our plan though, the water crossing at Kalapani.
Now I think (correct me if Im wrong) the vehicle has enough ground clearance and weight to handle Kalapani crossing. But I worry that water levels in the 1st week of July might be high due to early snow melt etc. and we might stall in the middle. So my question is: Is it realy advisable / doable to cross Kalapani with family and kids in this season? Or should we just attempt to reach Deosai from the Sadpara/Skardu side.
Brothers with (Deosai) off-roading experience please advise.
Mods kindly keep this in 4x4 section as it pertains to off-roading.
