    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

    well the trip was much off season since we went there in sep back in year 97. the weather was very harsh and due to heavy snowfall we struck up for good about 5 days at paiju and it took us 15 days to reach concordia from skardu.anyways lot of memories. the image quality is not good coz at that time digital cams were not so common n these pics were shot from ordinary yashica cam.
    Each moment of your life is a picture which you had never seen before, and which you'll never see again.
    Enjoy & Live Life!

    and this is only due to a broken bridge.. bridge thik ho jaey ga to phir sab sahi ho jaey ga,, about a few years back there was a small bridge that is broken last year. so jeeps are diverted to such a point where waters are shallow and crossing can be made...

    surely this is shatong nala.. just a trek leads on left side and about 1 full day trek will lead u to 6 lakes of unfathomed beauty..

    Yes CG-125 can cross this. The other water without the bridge is Kala Pani...

    Some of the early season pics, I seen, that bikers didn't dare to cross these, Instead they crossed while loading bikes on tractor trollies.

    But in End July, it was possible for bikes like CG-125...

    there is no chota pani.. han ahead bara pani is a crossing named as kala pani, from there onwords (near kala pani) u can reach murtaza chouki and chota deosai ...

    shatong nalla is the first point, after ali malik pass, than bara pani than kala pani than shoesar lake and than chilam chouki... that is the road of deosai..

    yes bridge building and road construction is in process. and i wish keh aisa na ho to behtar hai... coz road ban gaya to jo hal saiful maluk ka hua woh deosai ka ho jaey ga...

    woh deosai jo trek kiya tha uss main aur aaj key deosai main kafi farq aa chuka hai.. aab har koi wahan pohanch jata hai and i wish only nature lovers should reach there.

    Well done Rana Sahib
    But to be honest, I could not see any attraction at least through the Deosai pics shared on different thread other than adventure of water crossing...!
    Please don't take me wrong, just wanted to know if it really worth to stop by Deosai or better utilize this time for some thing else like Yaseen Valley etc. or any other suggestion..? Kindly share your experience.
