    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

    oh come one guys, i think this website is only for people to share their holidays, and help others in all aspects if they are also planing for something the same, its not a photography competetion or anyhting like that, i can see many people works an extra bit, and waste much more time, to take snaps and remember details of routes, and dos and donts along the way, etc, so v should onlky encourage people by this, there are tons os different cams used in different trips, and def people have good skills as well, but the main purpose of this site is to just share the info, and details, whatever one can share...........
    i am sorry if i look offensive in this msg, although it wasn;t the case or intention......
    hope u guys can understand....

    I am still a student in photography... actually mera camera bhi limited ha. Its old canon 3.2 MP. Camera acha ho tou aam say manzar koi bhi khaaas bana daita hai. (Though some not agree with this, but its true). Hope to purchase a new latest camera for my next tours...

    2ndly, when if I am in Public transport..... tou janab, so bhagtay chor ki langooti hi sahi... tou chalti gari say hi photoshoot....(Its better to miss completely to get some shots from moving location)...

    When I am at my drive... I have no photo from moving vehicle...

    Again I have two options to post these photos on thread or not.... I opted for posting... to share with you some pics of areas never/less covered on PW...

    Other than moving vehicle photography... Kindly tell some suggestion for improving the photography....

    I usually interested in information.

    The amount and quality of information you given to us is not match-able. Second thing is that normally we are not professional photographers. so i think photo quality is not bad.

    @asif. Janab you are very good in your photography skills

    nai i didnt mean that its a deficiency in ur thread but u can add value to it by taking better pics coz sometimes only the first look attracts ppl and also u dont need a latest cam for ur pics.....
    the following pics are with 3-5 megapixel cams. its just about framing and using ur cams features. just to get u started always shoot in landsacpe mode. irrespective ur taking persons foto or landscape and avoid the overhead cables and poles in them....

    For me... to share all this and help/guide others what is my Naqis Knowledge is Sadqa Jaria...

    And I got a wealth of knowledge from PW... Its due to PW that I was able to do these all treks...

    Uptill last year, I didn't even heard the name of Babusar Pass and not have a bit of info about these areas...

    Yeh bohat dooor lagtay thay... like common people... i also thought yar koun jae itni door... itni dooor jana kounsa aasan... this and that...

    So its a Qarz on me from PW fellows... that I share every thing with them...

    I encourage other people also, to share their reviews/info after their tour...

    Some people come on PW for getting info.. but after their tour they don't even share info...

    Thanks all..

    Day-13 - 28.07.2011

    I was the only guest in the hotel. I not even find any tourist in the whole valley.


    The driver of Taxi did not arrived and the hotel manager went to find him, he said due to water crossing and poor weather, it is not advisable to go Darkut on taxi... Waisay NATCO ki Hiace subah Darkut say nikalti ha and Sham ko Gilgit say Darkut wali Darkut pohanchti ha...

    Meanwhile all the hiace for gilgit passed. From Yaseen Valley no transport available after 5 am in morning.

    So hired taxi worth Rs. 800/- for Yaseen Village

    From Yaseen started to walk on foot with a local. enjoying the serene beauty...

    Found a local biker, got lift upto Gupis and further upto Gahkuch..

    Missed Khalti Lake and Phandar...

    From Gahkuch reached Gilgit in Hiace

    Chappli Kabab in Lunch from Haji Ramzan Hotel, Gilgit

    1pm Got Coaster for Pindi. Bike loaded on top
    6pm Chilas
    9pm Dinner at Summer Nala
    2pm Besham

    On a bright autumn morning I set out walking along the Yasin Valley, high in the Hindu Kush Mountains in the wild borderlands of northern Pakistan. Stark, iron-grey slopes rose on either side towards a cobalt-blue sky. In the lower reaches of the valley the poplar trees were flaming brushstrokes of copper-gold in the sharp sunlight, and the voices of children and the bleating of goats carried on the still air.


    My destination – the end-point of a year of research and travel – lay twenty miles ahead in the little hamlet of Darkot, last settlement before a high pass that led towards Afghanistan. I was travelling in the footsteps of the 19th Century British explorer George Hayward, heading for the spot where, in 1870, he was brutally murdered while trying to reach the Pamir Mountains.

    I had first come across brief accounts of Hayward’s strange story in books about “the Great Game”, the cold war of spying and exploration fought between Russia and the British Empire in the turbulent spaces of Central Asia in the 19th Century, and had been fascinated ever since. Like all the explorers who travelled in the region in the heyday of empire, Hayward straddled the boundary between espionage and scientific endeavour. But unlike his contemporaries – men with stiff upper lips and flying moustaches – he was somehow more modern, more intense. The motives for his murder remain a mystery to this day.

    The first journeys in my quest to find out more about this intriguing figure had taken me to the British Library and the Royal Geographical Society in London. But once I had leafed through Hayward’s letters, squinted at the squiggles of his spidery handwriting, and rifled the reams of conflicting reports on his death, I had hit a rockier road.

    For three years, in his desperate attempts to reach the Pamirs, Hayward had criss-crossed the high mountains of Asia, passing through the Karakoram in winter without a tent, being held hostage in Kashgar and falling out with the Maharaja of Kashmir, before finally coming to a sticky end in the Yasin Valley.

    Over the course of four wonderful months 140 years later, I rode rickety buses through Kashmir, hitchhiked across Ladakh, crossed Xinjiang during a total communications black-out enforced by the Chinese government, and now, finally, I was approaching my goal.

    I had been to Pakistan before, but this was my first return since the recent turmoil which has tipped the troubled nation to the very brink of the abyss. Coming in the footsteps of a fellow countryman who was beheaded by the locals didn’t, I had to admit, seem like the luckiest of pilgrimages, but in the ten days since I arrived on the stomach-churning Karakoram Highway from China I had met nothing but warm welcomes and hot cups of tea. The ramshackle town of Gilgit, capital of Pakistan’s far north, had been a place of firm handshakes and wild polo matches, and the Hunza Valley had been achingly beautiful. Yasin itself was a place of sharp light and gifts.

    It was late afternoon when I shambled into Darkot, a cold, stony village of flat-roofed houses beneath scored brown slopes. A ragged glacier curved to the west and the trail to the pass that Hayward had been trying to cross when he was killed bent away to the north.

    But today Darkot seemed a world away from the political troubles of both the 19th century and the modern era. Gaggles of friendly children led me to the house of the local schoolmaster, Mohamed Murad. He was completely unperturbed by my arrival and invited me to stay the night, though he later told me I was the first foreign traveller to visit Darkot for more than a year.

    After plying me with fresh bread and salty mountain tea Murad and another kindly teacher named Abdul Rashid led me to the spot where Hayward was killed – still known today as Feringhi Bar, “the Foreigner’s Valley”. It was a strangely beautiful spot, a patch of goat-cropped grass beneath a buckled apricot tree with the mountains all around. There, in the company of Murad, Abdul Rashid and a local farmer called Badal Beg I was treated to an impromptu picnic and a taste of the warm hospitality for which the rugged uplands of northern Pakistan are rightly famous.

    It was, I decided as I sipped my tea looking out across the high peaks of the Hindu Kush, a fitting end to my pilgrimage…
