    Default Uchhali Lake-Soun valley

    I did this tour with my brother last month, a bit late to post the pics

    The best time to visit the Soun is February-March or September to November when the weather can be enjoyed the most. We were a bit late but this was the only free Sunday so off we went to ride Our destination was Ochhali Lake in the Soun Valley, District Khushab.

    Total distance covered, from my hometown Jauharabad to Uchhali 150km
    Time consumed= A little more than 6 hours
    Track= Road+Off-road
    Weather= A bit hot

    beautiful! ... I heard one of the main Radar which can see deep into India is stationed on one of the sakesar's highest peak... It can alarm as early as Indian boggies fly from near border strips ..

    Yes, most of the lakes have salty water. However, I have heard of presence of fish in the Khabeki Lake, in fact the government gives it away on lease to successful bidders for a period of at least three years.

    I too saw this interesting place on a previous ride. These are soil mountains and maybe it is because of rains that they are in this shape now. Some pics I took last time:

    The reason why these mountains are in this shape is becuase they dont have greenery .. and the soil disolves away making them into this shape .. probable cause as you guys say that its a salt rich area.. this specific area must be to acidic in soil for any plantation to grow...

    It is this particular area with such kind of soil, around it there is greenery. There might be other chemicals than salt, I guess.

    Bro I actually found GS500 quite good on pebblish/gravel terrain. If you remember, I recently rode it a lot off road.

    During my trip on cg125 last year I found that due to its slim rear tyre, on gravel the bike really fishtails. Whereas the gs500 is more stable due its fatter rear tyre.

    Yes dear I know about your tour. But I believe that an off road bike is the proper ride for such tracks, and ensures more fun too.
