    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

    uff baba, deosai is a wonder..

    ap stop ya crossing ki baat kar rahey hain, i say aap 15 din bhi deosai trekking kartey rahien ya baithey rahien to deosai worth it...


    imagine a plateau of 3000 sq km at an altitude of about 15000ft above sea level, home of brown bears, extreme climate.. it is some thing unique in whole of the world... have u seen some of the pics share by me about deosai?

    Yeh apni apni pasand ki baat hoti ha... Yes there are some people that might not like... One my visit, the one of group member was of the view, that we spent much time at Deosai, and missed the Valley- (Chillam to Astore). He was saying asal beauty tou yeh thi...

    But I am of the view, Deosai is a worth for it. Baqi har valley/jaga ki apni khubsurti hoti ha...

    Deosai is junction point of Europian, japanese and himalyan plants of high altitude.

    Deosai has a differnt climate, You might not find anywhere...

    Log tou Deosai k khulnay ka bay-sabri say intezar kartay rahtay hain...

    Deosai is worth-it...

    No pic due evening and fishermen were in far on the river bank. Chillam ma apko tea/daal roti hi mil jae tou Ghaneemat samjhain... fishing tackle kahan say milay ga...

    Yehi haal Astore ka ha... Astore is not a city, It is a big village... Might be some basic items like fishing line (dooori) and hooks may be available at Astore/Chillam...

    But the whole stretch Chilam to Gorikot was full of Anglers (all locals)... Almost more than 100 (total) people were doing fishing...
