    Sir je time very short tha actually. So i decided to quick trip. It was Oct 2010. It was very cold as compare to Punjab. *(Double Blanket sardi)

    2ndly, I was alone at that trip.

    3rd, there was no PTCL no PCO in the whole valley ahead Athmuqam. I was not prepared for that.

    4th, I don't stay anywhere, I love to walk, bike or travel and not stay any area more than few hours.

    5. Shounter ka road band tha due floods.

    6. Arang Kel ka pata nahi tha uss waqt.

    So these were the reasons for not staying there for much time or covering much areas in short time instead short areas in detail.

    Sir jee, ma chahta hoon k jaldi say saray main areas ko apni photo banwa loon. detail ma baad ma dekh lain ***....


    Thanks.

    Due to heavy snow fall this winter and slower melting in summers Deosai plane was covered with snow. The lake surface was still frozen. It was one of the most memorable and mesmerizing sights during the whole trip when you finally reach Kala pani and the whole world around you is white, frozen and quiet. It felt like the time has stopped in that wilderness. It is one highly recommended area to go in any season, whenever its possible.

    Deosai on 6 July 2010.

    Dear Sir(s),

    If I will manage to buy a bike which I sold in last month at that time I did'nt know about PBC. Then can you guys accept me in PBC and take me with you on the great trip?

    If Yes then please advise how many days leave should I require from my office?

    Regards -Sajed

    Why Wakhan area of Afghanistan only? There is substantial part of it in Pakistan also. I would suggest you to start with Karombar trek.

    Thanx for your kind words...

    As for the leaves, around 15-20 days will be a relaxing and comprehensive trip, but people like me i could only arrange 10 days of leave, so i will be squeezing my plan according to my leaves and will be returning accordingly... so, no fixed number of days...

    And as for the final date, we will be deciding it over this weekend on our monthly meeting so be patient and check for the announcement dates in the next week...
