    Question 4x4Engaged? Winter in September!!

    The picture below shows the upper end of an active or moving unique (Bualtar)Hopar Glacier. Unique? where human life is found above Glacier. Because of constant breaking of ice the glacier is moving right along at about 8 inches per day. The glacier is approximate 20km long in distance. Take with you your best gripping shoes because the surface is very slippery.
    The melt waters fall into the hydro power station, and then carve a constantly changing path & merge with Hispar water & finally into Hunza River.
    I visited this Glacier back in 2002 with my wife & same was witnessed by 4x4 Engaged? the unspoiled beauty of Pakistan in September 2011.

    "What would be the temperature today? "

    "42 C"

    "why is there no shade on KKH?"

    "this can't be the 'Silk Route' ! are they ever gonna make this KKH?"

    "back to stone ages, boyz ! "

    and we were travelling on KKH at an average speed of 12km/hr after moving from the Nanga Parbat view point. No ! this speed was not of choice. We couldn't go any faster due to road conditions!

    Making use of any or all water crossings to cool down the suspension of our cars, we were approaching Jaglot. We had missed a refueling point (PSO) and were now headed towards the Shell in Jaglot before continuing for Hunza.

    FJ was missing badly by this time. It would not idle at all what so ever and we were trying to maintain speed and moving on. We thought it was because of the fuel pump, which did so under extreme hot weather before as well. Janj was at this stage racing with some Jeep and had moved farther. When we reached him, the problem was discussed and decided that FJ will lead now.

    It had not led 5 meters when the left exhaust pipe was caught throwing smoke like anything. And it would die as soon as the engine will come close to idling. We continued on until we reached the Jaglot Shell filling station and inspected the problem more closely.

    and what would you know ! fuel and oil mixture was coming out of the left exhaust pipe of engine like anything. The muffler had at least 5 litres of this mixture stored as well, which was efficiently dripping out of a pin hole continuously.

    Our first and major fear was about the injectors. Memories from Jalkhad came back and we quietly did the inspection. It was decided that we shouldn't carry on to Hunza like this but rather should take a detour and go to Gilgit first to thoroughly inspect the spark plugs and injectors and do the necessary works on inJun.

    and solemly we moved out of Mountain F/S with the picture above haunting us. Here is the pic of the right side exhaust pipe.
