    Default Jeepable / off-roading tracks: BABA'S GRADING

    Dear Colleagues,
    This thread is dedicated to MISKEEN BABA: The Founder of Off-Roading in Abbottabad Region. Therefore, may I request all our colleagues to refer to this classification as BABA's GRADES?
    This thread is intended to collect, organize and dissipate information about jeepable tracks in Pakistan. Currently, many of us gather information through personal contacts, and usually, the information is sketchy and incomplete. Earlier, we discussed and some recommendations were finalized and agreed upon.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>
    It was recommended to grade the tracks, so that the information may be streamlined. Instead of personal differences clouding decisions about difficulties, it would be more appropriate to objectively grade the tracks. Please follow the following recommended grading spectrum (All our friends are requested to help us edit and improve these)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 0:- very easy, softish dirt track / green lane, negotiable with any reasonable 2-wheel drive car)<o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 1:- Soft, dirt track, with some rocks. Requires better ground clearance. Therefore, negotiable with any 4 WD Vehicle, and a driver of any competency)<o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 2:- Track with stones and incline, narrow and difficult to negotiate in places, requires fully functional production 4WD vehicle with a good driver, Trolley can be towed if vehicle is powerful and heavy)<o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 3:- All of the above, with some places requiring expert spotters and out-of-vehicle assistance to guide and support the driver. Needs Expert Off-Road Drivers and a fully maintained vehicle. Towing Trolley possible but dangerous on these tracks)<o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 4:- Extreme Off-Road tracks, requiring all of the above, and support equipment, including but not limited to a strong winch, ropes, chains, bush winches, and other pulling or restraining material. Essential to have two or more vehicles:Not to be tackled by a single vehicle under any circumstances. ABSOLUTELY NO TROLLEYS)<o:p></o:p>
    (Grade 5:- Only for modified vehicles and Professional Off-Road Drivers. Requiring Expert Team Assistance, eg for construction of temporary supports and bridges)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    It is requested to please post all your track information in the following format.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Name of the Destination<o:p></o:p>
    Distance from a point of common knowledge / Length of the track<o:p></o:p>
    Distance in travel hours on an average speed <o:p></o:p>

    Last Fuel Availability Point<o:p></o:p>
    Last Food Availability Point<o:p></o:p>
    Last Roofed Accommodation Point<o:p></o:p>
    (If possible, please post data regarding the accommodation, like cost, friendliness of staff, whether feasible for family or not, etc……..)<o:p></o:p>
    Last Vehicle Repair / Spares/Oils etc. availability
    Security Concerns<o:p></o:p>

    Default Some more pictures of Kamal Bun track

    Here are some more pictures from the same, Khannian to Kamal Bun track.
    The track itself is around 7 km dirt road. It is wide enough to accomodate a 911 truck, that regularly brings down logs from above. There is a forrest nursery near the end.
    the track has areas with mud and deep ruts. These convert this easily negotiable track into something more sinister.
    A vehicle with low clearance may have problems.
