    Default The wind, bike & heart; Tour De North

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the highlands of North Pakistan. I done this trip during the flood of 2010, infact it got flooded in the midst of my this journey. This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experience & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

    Some Statistics:
    Days Spent: 35
    Distance Covered: 6300km (home to home)

    @alam786

    I have tell a piece of information.. not talking abt religion or any caste. I am talking about language and race.

    As a tourist, I not only see the scenery. I also meet locals.. and get information about them.

    Sorry If I said something wrong.

    I am very much here Sir. Northern Area doesn't exist with this name any more. It has been renamed to GB. And if you see the title of my thread I never used the word of "Northern Area", instead i used "North" and this is a respective North from my place.

    Default Day6

    After having breakfast, checked out the hotel and set off back to Sharda from Kel. Reached Sharda in couple of hours and went to AJK Tourism Rest house Sharda. Our plan was to go from Noori Nar Top towards Jalkhad(Kaghan Valley). Met with Manager of the Tourist Lodge Mr. Jan Sher Khan, a nice and courteous person. He told us that Noori Nar top is still close due to heavy snowfalls in winter and you can not go from there unless you trek it. So decided to go back Muzaffarabad.

    Some photos of Irfan taken at Sharda.

    Reached back Muzaffarabad around 3Pm. Went to AJK Tourist Info Center Muzaffarabad to have some information brochures.
    Our bike parked outside the building. Condition of bike is enough to tell you the story of roads of Neelum Valley. A 4x4/SUV is a better choice for these kind of roads.
