    @above
    i suggest u pay a visit to this
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/roa...es-2012-season

    this will help u with the road conditions..
    petrol will be available (i dont think there should be any issue)
    till balakot there are petrol pumps .. get filled from balakot..but i think u can find
    petrol from shops afterwards also but cost/quality may b compromised..

    hotels: though i haven't visited myself but from forums i heard
    hotel demanchi, sarhad tourism hotel are good though u have to bargain hard from
    sarhad as i read...there is one hotel lalazar it also ok.. ptdc motel can also be booked but the economy rooms are not well maintained..

    FOR THE BIKE RELATING THINGS
    i recommend u to pay a visit to a thread by our guru Mr. Rana Sherdil
    he visited whole area kaghan naran babusar gilgit deosai etc etc etc on his bike cg125 and natco..from multan.. he mentioned fares, loading unloading, do's dont's with lots of elaborated pics..
    he is the right person to get info..

    PS>>i haven't stayed in these hotels..Gurus may correct me..i suggest based on my reading and sense

    Thanks and BOL

    we had bike tirp in 2003 of these areas and enjoy more than a car.
    Honda 125 is better for this type of trip but other bikes may create some difficulty. suzuki sprinter is also better then 70cc. although we had also gone on honda CD-70 (2 bikes and 4 persons). we faced problem from kewi to shogran. you can reach till naran easily. that time best service was niazi bus service. their vehicle Nishi Nepon that have vide diggi. they carry our bikes on their diggi safely till islamabad without petrol on petrol tenki. you can carry almost 2 bikes in diggi of that bus. I don't know about abdullah travel's buses.
    once you full your tanks from islamabad, there's no need till naran to refill again (in our case). petrol is easily available in naran.
    you can't go on bikes at saif-ul-maluk. park you vehicles in naran and go on jeep.
    i've also visited on my cultus in august 2011. road are good. weather is also good after balakot. Inshallah you enjoy more.

    can't say anything about opening of noori top. follow the thread abt kaghan valley updates.

    just normal precautions. Just remember you wont have any help in the way regarding your bike. distance ap google earth say calculate kar lain.

    ap half day ma sharda pohanch jao ***. road is Jalkhad Noori Top . Surgan and Sharda.

    If you want to go Kel, you have to go upward in the valley some 30km and 1.30 to 2 hours.

    search the maps on the google search engine

    Using these gear, I didn't felt easy. But this is personal choice by the way. Using it will definite protect you in case you fell.

    I used these only first day. I think wo bhi not full day..

    This might be difficult as almost all passengers have luggage and accommodating 5 bikes in one bus would be difficult.

    You have 3-4 buses leaving during night from Niazi Express and i think 2 from Abdullah Travels. Check with them in advance or take tickets of multiple buses.
