    Default Solo Flight North Pakistan 2011 - Biking, Hiking, Hitchhiking, Jeep Safari & NATCO

    Alhamdullillah, I have completed my North Trip alone. 16.07.2011 to 30.07.2011 alone. Joined 4 groups in way. Enjoyed a lot. Earned friends and memories.


    I have travalled from Multan to Mansehra in Shalimar AC Coach with bike loaded on top.

    From Mansehra I have started my biking trip to Naran and Jalkhad, Chilas, Gilgit. Then visited Hunza Duikar (Eagle Nest), Karimabad and Ataabad Lake.

    On return from Hunza I have visited Naltar lake on bike alone.

    After return to Gilgit from Naltar, I parked my bike in Jamal Hotel and set off via NATCO to Skardu. From Skardu visited Sadpara Deosai, Chillam and Astore.

    From Astore I went Raikot, visited fairy meadow and returned back to Gilgit. From Gilgit visited Yaseen Valley. From Yaseen returned back to Gilgit. and there on Public Transport Coaster returned to Rawalpindi.

    From Rawalpindi I have visited Nathia Gali and back to Pindi. From Pindi via Skyways started Journey to Home (Multan)

    Thanks

    This is the pic of the Ali Malik peak, which can be seen from Sadpara Top - At Deosai...

    An analysis..


    I placed a mark on the K-2 top and add a distance line between the K-2 top and Ali Malik Peak... and made a 3D standing at Ali Malik Peak (16000+ feet ASL) towards K-2.

    Due to google earth max limit of seeing in distance, though K-2 is not showing but the Red Mark at K-2 Top is seeing... Aagay ap next visit pa confirm kar laina.. or some other PWheelers can do confirm...

    I want a thread to be started, in which the pics of an area from another can been shown. e.g. kashmir Hills from Murree, Murree from Islamabad, Rawal Dam from murree etc....

    K-2 can be seen from numerous place, I believe. But known and accessible places are few.

    One is Rush Phari Peak near Rush Lake. Another is Humbrok Village. Humbrok nestles in a side valley high above the Hushe River west of Hush.

    A local taxi driver told me that a lake near Jaglot.. Might be this is that lake. He was telling Chakarkot Lake

    Gasho Lake
    Gasho Lake Alpine Wetland situated in Sai-bala valley of Gilgit district on N 35 42’ 440” Latitude and E 74 24’ 535” Longitude at an elevation of 9440 feet. The lake is feed by perennial streams of Gasho and tutang-bari/ Shora-gah streams (nullahs). A dense forest of Kail and Spruce mixed with Juniper is situated around the lake. On one side of lake local right holders develop Agricultural land and shepherds huts, as we move ahead a small village namely “Gasho village” be situated, where mostly Gujars are inhabitant.
