    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

    personally i think Naltar is a little under rated..... its a great place and the fact that its a year around location and easily asscible by jeep for families and novice tourists is also amazing.......
    i remember in 2006 i went there as my inaugral trip. i trekked to the first lake as there was no jeep track there and it was snowing on 3rd june.... it was alovely camping experience. there were no ppl around.....

    also its a ski resort...

    There is no comparison.. but I am telling you, whats there in Naltar, Naltar ma aik roaring river ha. fishing ha.. glaciers hain... snowcapped mountains hain... meadows hain... pine tree forest ha.... 4,5 lakes hain... snow leapord, markhor etc hain..Ski slope ha... it is usually open year round.. aik high pass ha.

    You can observe the Qul-Fed fields in lower areas... observe the Naltar Power house... then you go up, the climate get change very quickly... and you reach a pine forested area... Glacier and snowbound peaks on your head...

    Then you go further, you reach the lake complex.. where pine forest ends and start a birch forest zone.. then ultimately this birch forest zone also ends and a alpine meadow zone start and then ultimately the snow zone.. the kingdom of ice and glaciers...
