    Default WAFT Adventure Club : Jhal Khad Trip 2008

    AOA Friends
    This time i am sharing WAC Jhalkhad trip.
    A total of six members went along.

    Aamir on CG 125
    Imran on CG 125 Delux
    Shehzad on imran Delux
    Kashif on CD 100
    Mansoor on Amir CG 125
    &
    me on CG 125 orange

    Our plan was to reach as far as possible on Naran - Chilas road but could not reach much farther than Jhal khad due unfavourable weather. It was raining a lot and senior guys decided to cut short the trip as the amateurs may get ill. We chose the route via Muzaffarabad and started from Rawalpindi. We had our four permanent members along us, who are always willing to go on trip but at the same time we try to lure many others.

    Many friends of us assure us that they are willing but when the actual time comes most of them back off giving one reason or other. two non adventurists joined us this time Shehzad and Mansoor.
    Following are some of the trade mark pictures taken by my mobile camera

    As soon soon as one enters Azad Kashmir area after crossing Kohala, especially on the bikes, the police starts to question. The try to identify your intentions, origin, legal documents, etc. One or two guys negotiate with them the rest wonder here and there.

    Kashif had problem with his Horn. He wanted to sound like a bull in the mountains. He managed to get it right but, it again faded away as we went into the mountains.

    We all wanted to get checked one thing or the other. I had some missing problem. A mechanic helped in cleaning the fuel valve.

    Although it was mid day the seniour guys opposed to have a full fledged lunch. Milk shake was the other option. as i had stayed in MZ for some time so i guided them to the shops.
    Bikes are parked on the road outside the shop.

    Another shot of the same market. There are many shops of old boots and bags run by pathan or Afghani people around the juice shops.

    Now we are at ground level in Garhi Habib ullah. This is River Kunhar. One can go down and have a couple of snaps there.

All of us refueled there.We had our road lunch with 01 chapati and chappal kabab just to kill the hunger. All of us were waiting to reah Kiwai to have lunch *** dinner. These snaps show our stay at Balakot,

    Finally we had our full fledged Khana at Kiwai. It is our favorite place to stay, whenever we go to naran. after the earth quake the beauty of the place has deteriorated but still one could enjoy eating while dipping his feet in cold water.

    Its fun to eat while you are tired. We deprived of full fledged food through out the journey.

    Then came an Obstacle. When we moved from Kiwai the night was falling. As we proceeded towards Kaghan it became darker. Suddenly one of the bike went into a small ditch resulting into tyre puncture.

    Although we had all the accessories, but it became too difficult. We did our best to fix the puncture in pitch darkness. The only light we had was mobile Nokia 1100 light. Puncture was all right but we had badly bruised the tube while getting it out of the tyre and then putting in. It was of no use. We finaly decided to stay at the next coming place which was Mahandri. We did put up there.

    It was an ordinary hotel. Room rent charged per night was 500 Rs. We had no other option but to stay there. boys were tired and wanted to have rest. Our original plan was to stay at Kaghan. But with a broken bike and tired bodies, every body wanted to stay there. So we stayed.WAFT Adventure Club  Jhal Khad Trip 2008 -1414856WAFT Adventure Club  Jhal Khad Trip 2008 -1414855WAFT Adventure Club  Jhal Khad Trip 2008 -1414857
