    Plan one and three both are interesting but I am more inclined towards plan three.
    I work only because it pays for three F's. Food for me, Fuel for my bike and Film for my camera.

    Lots of trekking involved in plan 3. The climb from Taobut to Deosai is tough.
    We will leave bikes in Taobut and make an around trip of Deosai, Ratu, Shounter and Kacha Chatta before reaching Taobut again to get bikes.
    Should be interesting.

    @Sardar sahib,
    Trip, duration, and departure dates are open to suggestions. If we go for trip 1 then members might like to join the Shandhoor Polo mela which is held somewhere in July. Can someone confirm the dates please.
    Personally I would like to mix the 3 this year on my Kawa:-)

    You will find places to stay everywhere along the route but it is always better to carry tents. In our last trip all the rooms and tents in Jalkhad were occupied and our team had to sleep in their tents. I wonder what we would have done had we been without them?

    You've got a point. I would suggest you to take sleeping bags instead of blankets.
    I think you should be ok.

    Cheaper stuff is available in Landa bazaar. For higher quality tents and sleeping bags there are 2 shops in Lahore. First near Ravi chargha close to Menar i Pakistan and another in Garden Town close to Mughal i Azam shaadi ghar. Both have websites and you can get their contacts if you google with words "Lahore, camping equipment"
