    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

    We had our share of stay at the lake. The lake presented a deserted look. We all had been here many times before. Once we asked a local about it, admiring its beauty. The reply which he gave us was mind blowing, He was standing on the junction of main Naran saiful maluk road, what he said was some thing like this

    " Jheel takni ee te saveery saveery tako, diney te chappar ie hona ae'

    We still remember his swift reply and made a point that whenever we came next wel try to make it in early morning.

    After having a quick rest we moved down as per plan on foot, we had done that journey previously but whenever we come some things in the way change, but some things remain old. A little change is always there. We started descending without any hiking shoes.

    after moving down a hundred meters one looks back. No sign of lake. A new comer can not believe that just at the last turn in front the beautiful saif ul maluk will emerge in its full splendor.. The track leading down is a un paved track with small glaciers making its way a little bit challenging.

    Behind Malika Parbat is hidden in clouds

    This is the other side where we have to go. At the left side the Saif ul Maluk Nullah always flow in a fast tune. One cannot cross it. Nor should one try. If u fall in it although chances are less that you will get killed but still serious injuries may occur. So keep it on your left side and move ahead.

    After moving down to Naran 200 to 300 yards approx on main road leading to lake we turn left to descend a steep slope . The original road rather jeep track moves right and keeps it self along the hill line. How ever we decided to do a short cut. And Short cuts are always risky.

    Vast depth is visible, while descending one feels a lot of pressure on knees. The main jeep track is visible in the back ground. And we are descending keeping distance with each other. Right infront Naran city is just below the 3rd mountain in the pic.

    Steep slope. The pebbles underneath your feet making you uncomfortable. Need to be extra cautious.

    Mountains on left and right side are barren with sand and falling loose rocks.

    Aamir standing on the top of a very steep slope. This was indeed very dangerous. i slipped twice on it.

    and when you slip you land on your ***. The pain cannot be explained. It can only be felt.
