    Default Trip to Kashmir Neelum Valley and Jagran Valley

    Kashmir, land of beauty, where Neelum & Jehlum flow wildly with immense power, forming beautiful Neelum and Jehlum valley. Love story of these rivers completes at Muzaffarabd where both the rivers combine together; from here river Jehlum continues to flow downstream. Pines, glaciers, waterfalls and very nice people that’s what Kashmir is. People are very very friendly, very understanding, supporting and very importantly literate. Wherever I was in Kashmir I saw Kids in uniform going to or coming back from school; boys/girls coming back from or going to college. Kashmir has very good literacy rate and it made me proud. This land is recovering from 2005 earthquake and floods of 2010. It will take time to rebuild the infrastructure but I have full confidence that brave Kashmiris will stand strong like ever.

    Summer is time in Pakistan when North opens its window for tourists, nature lovers and vagabonds like me. A trip was long due from me and my friend’s side; basic instinct of riding and exploring nature was overcoming all other responsibilities which we normally face in our lives; heart was pushing me to spare time and go to the land of beauty. So, we planned for a three days trip to Neelum and Jagran Valley which started on 15 June, 2012. I am not a hermit/loner and always prefer to have company and friends on trips. Unfortunately for this trip it was only me and Imran, other guys failed to join us because of their personal engagements and I regret that they missed an experience of a life time. I was riding GS-150 and Imran was on CG-125.

    To keep the thread interesting, I will update on different visited locations time to time and I am not summarizing the trip in the beginning. My below posts will lead us to above mentioned valleys with pictures and explanations; though words and pictures are not enough to share kinda experience.


    I prepared for the trip and took essential stuff with me. As I was riding bike so took following items with me.

    1. Sleeping bag
    2. Warm jacket for night
    3. Wind breaker for riding
    4. Toothpaste and brush, soap
    5. Extra pair of shoes and one pair of sleeper
    6. Warm sleeping suite, spare T-shirts, spare pair of socks
    7. Torch, toolkit, necessary spare parts for my bike (clutch wire, accelerator wire, brake shoes with springs, headlamp and tail light bulbs)
    8. First aid kit
    9. And very importantly safety gear



    Looking forward for your support and participation.

    I have been silently following your thread for the last week or so.... I have been to Neelum valley in 2010 and then we visited almost the complete valley even Taobutt and Shonter etc. The two main places that we missed were Arang Kel and Jagraan valley (Kutton etc.) Now Insha'Allah we will be leaving for another tour of Neelum valley tomorrow. This time we will concentrate on mainly Jagraan valley. We need some guidance from you in this regard.

    1) You said that way to Kutton and Jagraan is 4WD only and is not possible by a car? But from other sources and people I have come to know that one can easily take a car to Kutton? Can you clarify?
    2) I have seen a documentary which says that Kutton is at a distance of 6KM from Kundal Shahi and Jagran is another 10 KM from Kutton.Is this true? Also where is this Dam (i.e in Kutton or Jagran? )
    3) Have you done some hiking in Jagraan valley? I am particularly interested in hiking to Khorian Meadows in upper Jagran valley....Have you gathered some info?
    4) Is Jagran valley worth of spending 2 nights? What are the attractions there?

    Please can you reply early so that we get the required info before 4PM as we will be leaving tomorrow early in the morning.....

    Well i don’t remember where i mentioned that one can’t go to Kutton on a car or van; Kutton is very close to Kundal Shahi and in whole the forum i recommended may people for night stay in Kutton. May be its some misunderstanding and i will appreciate if you please quote me my post where i said so ... so that i can amend to correct that post.

    - Dam (dont be excited to expect something like Mangla or Khanpur or Tarbela dam) is in kutton and i will post the pics as thread will cover Kutton.
    - We have not tracked Jagran; regarding liking Jagran, its totaly personal and Jagran is different then Kale and Sharda; its personal preference. Very few people cover Jagran so you should give it a try if you feel so

    Any more questions; feel free to contact me

Its my personal opinion though i have seen Mehran, Santro, Xbox and Cultus going to Sharda

    In my books Jagran is impossible on car its a pure 4x4 track. Even its difficult on Bikes without off road or dual purpose tires, i did it on bike but its hell of a track
    I was referring to this post of your.... I think I am mixing Kutton and Jagran here.... So Kutton and Jagran are two different places. Kutton is just 6km from Kundal Shahi and is reachable via any car etc. Jagran is further away which can only be reached via Jeep? am I right????? Please do correct me and please tell some more details about Kutton and Jagran as I will be leaving early in the morning tomorrow.

    yes you are rite you are mixing kutton and jagran, my text was regarding Jagran and word Kutton was never used. Kutton comes on the way to Jagran valley. well i donno what you want to know but if you ask me specific questions that would be easier for me. In jagran hotels are not that good and if you going with family its better to stay at kutton... go to jagran and come back at night. My initial plan too was to visit only Jagran valley but we changed it. Do share your experience beyond Jagran; deep in jagran valley how it feels to be. My personal experience about Jagran.....................i will share latter
