ref to my updation on Off road Pakistan forum.I wana share our Latest tour of Babusir Pass.The said tour was the most memorable tour of my off road carrier.
We left Islamabad at 06:30 on 12-8-2006 & reach Balakot at 11:30pm & slept in a driver hotel along the road as road was blocked due to land slide near Kiwai(14Km) after Balakot.
We crossed that Land slide area even stones were coming & hiting us but there was no turning back & we reached Lalusir Lake by crossing Naran & Taking some Important supplies.We reached Besal at 11:pm at night as most of the day time was wasted at Kiwai.We camped at Lalusir it was very cold & dark so we camped,eat tin food & slept in sleeping bags.
Morning was very beautiful & pleasant at Lalusir.But our stomach were in bad condition due to the bad (tin food) & every body was patient of Daria (loose motions) & we were laughing at each other as there was only one Lota & Nine people were rushing towards the rocks
Three Jeeps My Willy's ,Mr.Aziz (friend from Lahore) Dihutsu Rocky (1987) & Land cruiser belongs to Col.Amir Murad.We enjoyed the beauty of Lalusir & Moved on To Babusir Pass after Lunch.It was real Hard core off road to Babusir Pass as I drove about 4 Hours continuous in L-4 (4wd) at about 4500 RPM on average as there was steep climb uphill & track was very narrow & river kunhar is roaring 1000 meter below.No space for error.We enjoyed the scenery at Babusir pass & sort of chilas we came back all the way Back to Besal as road was closed due to land slide near Chilas so we decided to go back same route.
Camping at Ghazi Sir Lake was our dream when we visited Naran on 01-7-2006 so we decided to make do it.As the track for Ghazi Sir Lake starts from Bata Kundi & it took 90 mins to reach Ghazi Sir but that was the most dangerous part of the tour as Rocky's Breaks were weak so we tried to hire a Taxi jeep to carry our luggage & People & the taxi Jeep (Extended cj-7) Driver said "u people are Mad" this track is very dangerous & he refuses to go.So we decided that Hamid Munir (Citibanker) will drive the Rocky & so we moved on & camped at Ghazi Sir Lake.So we are the first Jeepers who made it,camped there,Spend night,caught trought (Fish) & have lots of fun.
Back to Naran from Ghazi Sir Lake.In naran during Luch I offer all of the team that tour will be incomplete if we will not take Pics at saiful Malook so every body decided to go there.Glacier before Naran was in Bad shape so we took only two jeeps Alon Willys & Rocky as Land cruiser was fully loaded woth Tents,Sleeping bags,Food etc.
Crossing Glacier was also a story whcih was caught on video camera by Doctor (Friend from Lahore) & finaly me got good Pucs at Saif Ul Malook.
Back to Islamabad & by grace of GOD weather was clear no more traffic at Land slides & we saw that Austin Rower (Amazing jeep) on way back.
