    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.

    Please post a map of Nomal road which was mentioned as a short cut to reach Hunza valley. Distance, time taken, condition of the road, etc.

    We didn't get to see the Budha statue. Wasn't it destroyed by you know whom? our SOP was to move out from Gilgit ASAP, anyways

    Such a nice view of Rakaposhi ruined by these telecom towers
    I wonder which @$$ gave permission to erect these towers on this very landscape when there were acres around available as well

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - WISdaysix 83
    agreed with noms, these "Eefffaaaallll" towers should not be erected to obstruct natural beauty.

    Could you share how to determine he quality of petrol with naked eye?

    Destroyed Buddhas were bamiyan Buddhas in neighbouring Afghanistan. I was referrring to those at kargah site about 6-10 km from Gilgit.

    But after such a enormous DIY, I'd leave Gilgit ASAP than to go sightseeing.

    Just smell it, it should smell like 'petrol'... The fuel smell at PSO Abbotabad was so bad that it had alerted many of us already...

    Question Coming up Next 27th highest in the world and 12th highest in Pakistan

    Engaged Wiki
    Rakaposhi is notable for its exceptional rise over local terrain. On the north, it rises 5800m in only an 11.5 km horizontal distance from the Hunza River. There are magnificent views of Rakaposhi from the Karakoram Highway on the route through Hunza. A tourist spot in the town of Ghulmat (located in the Nagar Valley) called "Zero Point of Rakaposhi" is the closest convenient view point of the mountain.

    Rakaposhi is also known as Dumani ("Mother of Mist")

    Was that the route where you have to go through a tunnel and a hanging bridge to enter Hunza valley?

    Waiting for the map.

    Default Nomal Road Map

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - NomalMap


    The Nomal Road will take one to Naltar and we crossed a bridge (not hanging) to get back on KKH (N35) and continued to Hunza.

    Hope this helps.
