    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

    Yup; a lot of preparations, logistics and determination required; though altitude gains every day are not that killing as advised by the people who have been there.

    Above all one has to cope with blackmailing by porters along the trek, something that is hard to digest.

    @ Wanderlust and Sherdil sb:

    i have done K2 Ghondogro La trek last year (Alhamdulillah). its a llong trek and u definitly need a lot of experience in trekking for that. i attempet after 4 years of trekking......
    Altitude is also a problem as altitude sickness is common on the boltoro glacier.

    and yes cordinating and managing the guides and porters is the biggest menace there.......

    Fairy Meadow - Day-10 25.07.2011

    The day started with a refreshing morning.. Nanga parbat was visible from the pillow...

    We took shower, breakfast. we were fresh after a full sleep.

    Then we headed to Bayal Camp.. The way to Bayal camp is very beautiful. The local carpenters were working there for making wooden cabins... Streams were on the go.

    A portion of the trek was very narrow, scary. I preferred to go back instead of going ahead. (My shoes were also not good trekking shoes these were Digger though tested at Meeran Jani)

    The group continued to Bayal.. I returned to Fairy meadow. visited Fairy Meadow lake. fantoori.. and also rest kia

    Fazal told us the story how he became land maufia and how he grabbed the land for this hotel..

    In evening.. the group returned... we had also chat with some other people arrived there. Then had a campfire... and slept...

    So the day end...

    Road to Fairy Meadows is really dangerous.

    This is the pet bakra of the hotel owner.. he was calling it a markhoor (just a pet name of his goat)

    We didn't eat that got.... yes the cattle is small usually there in hilly areas...
