    It seems after driving this 4.0 L, non turbo, 2.5 ton vehicle I have also got slow, dont worry guys will make pace soon.

    After Lunch we started our journey to Astore at 4 pm, it was really a verylong and hectic day, not reached destination after travelling 21 hrs, still 5 hrs to go. So after lunch the driver got changed and the position was held by KK with saint as navigator, while me and Immi took a nap on rear seats.

    So we finally got KKH, road condition between Chilas and Raikot is pathetic lot of pot holes and land sliding area make it quite slow, however road ahead of Raikot bridge is newly completed and you can easily drive around 60km/h.

    Road to Astore is narrow but metaled, we continued our journey alone as we hardly come across a few vehicles.

    It was getting dark when we reached near Astore and the problem was that neither our navigation was giving us details nor we were able to find somebody to guide us as there were some offtakes from main road without any signboards.

    Finally we reached Astore at 8 pm,
    Astore to agaya par PTDC Rama kahan he?

    Got some fuel and asked the petrol filling boy how far is PTDC Rama from here and you know the default answer, "bus ye thora sa opar ja kar aa jaye ga", at this moment everyone was dead tired and the only thing we wished for was a bed.

    PTDC Rama is only 8 km from Astore city but this 8 km at night when there is no body to guide is like 80 kms, got fed up and the jump rod clamp we got fixed in Naran got opened once again.

    Finally we reached PTDC Rama at 9:30 pm.
    <o:p></o:p>

    What a wonderful destination, nice facilities and friendly staff and most importantly we informed them when we left Chilas that we are coming and we will have dinner.

    Thank God that we got hot water and we got fresh up, now we were bit relaxed to have dinner.

    Night was quite cold.

    While waiting for the dinner, we kept on discussing about the milestones we covered in a day and our next day plans.

    Next morning, after the breakfast, it was time to inspect the ride, jump rod clamp again opened.<o:p></o:p>

    In the polo ground just outside PTDC Rama, an event was going on, we went there to find some mechanic and to get the details of the event.<o:p></o:p>


    Tea was served to us and we came to know that the meeting among ministers is going on to finalize the plan of polo match starting from September 01, 2013 as the shandur polo ground had been washed by floods.<o:p></o:p>


    And finally we found a mechanic there.<o:p></o:p>


    He did some inspection and advised us its better to take it to astore city, we will find plenty of mechanics there.<o:p></o:p>


    No problem we will get it fixed, m
    e and Immi went to astore city for rectification.

    Enjoyed the amazing beauty from Rama to Astore, at night it was an endless journey as we were dead tired but now it seems we are in heaven on earth, paisay pooray hogaye, chalen wapis?<o:p></o:p>


    Reached Astore city.

    Got the clamp fixed, tyre pressure checked and air filter got cleaned, got some fresh fruits.<o:p></o:p>


    Lets go back, r
    eached PTDC Rama back around 1 pm.

    After discussion we finalized to go for <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placename w:st="on">Rama</st1:placename> <st1:placetype w:st="on">Lake</st1:placetype></st1:place> trek and we will have supper on our way back, food was already ordered, rama lake is only 4 kms away from PTDC Rama but it needs a 4x4 jeep.<o:p></o:p>

    Track ahead of PTDC Rama is amazing.<o:p></o:p>


    Crossed the wooden bridge and now the narrow track starts.<o:p></o:p>


    Time to engage 4x4, I put her in L4 and 2nd gear and it crawls like a tank.<o:p></o:p>


    Its tough for a newbie like me but when you have experienced offroaders on board a newbie like me can do it. <o:p></o:p>


    A few turns made us to reverse once otherwise this bulky 60 made it alhamdolillah.

    Spent almost an hour while enjoying the natural beauty of rama lake and surroundings and started our journey back to PTDC Rama, we crossed this stream by a wooden bridge.
