    Default Tour de Khunjerab .................dedicated to our dear departed friend, Ajab Khan!

    This thread was started on the request of many friends, but most of all Ajab Khan who accompanied on this wonderful trip for most part, but had to miss the Khunjerab visit. He contributed hundreds of his beautifully captured pictures to this thread for all of us to remember him by.

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/4x4...b-khan-rip-bro



    June 2013

    The trip route was Naran, Jalkhad, Lulusar, Babusar, Chilas, KKH, Gilgit, Hunza Karimabad, Duikar Eagles nest, Attabad lake, Hoper Glacier, Gilgit, Gupis (the road beyond towards Phandar/ shandur had been swept away by flood waters), Back to Gilgit, Hunza, Attabad, Gulmit, Passu, Sust, Khunjerab top. The return jouney from Khujerab was Gulmit, Attabad crossing, Hunza, Gilgit, Astore, Rama, Chilas, Babusar, Naran and back home!

    Tour de Khunjerab! -1240560

    Tour de Khunjerab via Naran Babusar Chilas Gilgit Hunza! June 2013 -1253374







    A brief timeline

    Islamabad to Naran non-stop 6-7 hours if you leave early and avoid traffic. Naran to Chilas via Babusir depends how long you stop over on the way, such as at Jalkhad, lulusir, Babusir top etc. Non stop it can be completed in 5-6 hours. Chilas to Gilgit is 130km (in 2 to 2-1/2 hours), gilgit to Hunza Aliabad approx 90-95km in 2 hours. Hunza to Attabad lake 30-40 minutes. The lake crossing is 50-55 minutes (9.5Km), but depends how long you take to negotiate and get onto the boat etc and than hopefully don't have to wait too long to get off at other end. You can take vehicle across on the boat as well (own or rented), charge may vary 3000-4000rs one way each, depending on your vehicle size and negotiating skill. The boat drops you at the other end "Gulmit" a beautiful small village/ town. Distance from Gulmit to Khunjerab is 135km (Sust is after 50km approx). Takes an hour to get to sust atleast, as first 10km the road is katcha and in poor shape. There after its fresh mettled road, like between gilgit n hunza. Sust to Khunjerab can be reached in 2 hours approx.

    The first boats leaves (on the lake) roughly after 5:30 am and last one leaves at 6pm. If you are going from Hunza, a day trip to Khunjerab is easily possible, but if you go that far, might as well stay the night in Sust or Gulmit. PTDC Sust is nice enough, and Marcopolo Inn Gulmit is nicer. There are plenty other hotels there as well.

    All above timings are doable, but, break downs, puntures, land slides, road work related stops etc can add time very easily!

    Yup, got it http://www.adventurefamily.se/

    Welcome
    to the homepage of adventurefamily.se, a site started by the Poskitt and Poznic families when planning for a Sweden-Tibet-Australia overland trip.This site was initiated to sum our experiences and inspire others to go travelling. As some of you might know, our route slightly changed when we were at the Persian Gulf, and in stead of Australia, we ended up in Africa. The Poskitt's turned back to stay in Kenya, after reaching Malawi while the Poznic's ended up in South Africa and then shipped back to Sweden.The Poznic's are on their way again this autumn. The destination is still unknown, but it will be one year on the road. Read all about this here soon, as this page will be updated with new pictures and information shortly. For the time being, you can read about our first adventure that ended in 2009.You can also follow us on http://www.facebook.com/adventurefamily.se

    Milan
    Milan has a PhD in Ultrasonics KTH but used to work as a car mechanic. Hence Milan will be responsible for the vehicles mechanics on our trips.Main intrests are skiing, travelling and quality time with the family.

    Pia
    Pia has a Techn. Lic. degree in vehicle dynamics. Pia will be the navigator on our trips showing us the way. Main intrests are snowboarding, travelling and Capoeira.
