    Sorry I was busy with some other stuff after reaching back.

    So in a nutshell, this trip was awesome with some mishaps and limitations due to petrol availability and return date limitation by few members.
    My plan was to reach atleast Chillas on first day and for that I played little mischievous . Mischievous in a sense that I know one can travel much more on first day than any other day. Most of the members had already been upto Naran and Babusar Top, so I wanted to travel without any pause in this area, so that we can have maximum time to explore the rest area. For that, I just told them about kilometers and kept them neglected about the curvy road (which limits your speed as compared to straight road) and when ever they asked me that its too much now and lets stop I just told them, "Yar abhi tu 40km aye ho" Anyways we camped first at Jalkhad.
    Also on the way to Naran, there were huge traffic jams. first some 20 km ahead of Balakot, then near Kiwai, then in Kaghan and finally in Naran. We being on bikes were able to move through but even then this all wasted our 3-4 hours.
    Further reaching Jaglot, we were informed about the petrol situation in ahead areas by returning bikers and that turned out true later reaching there and that also ruined our plans. Some members were not willing to keep their fuel tanks full all time and that also caused rescheduling of plan again and again.
    Some members were not familiar with camping before and hence were not proactive because of their illiteracy in this field. Further more, 3 minor accidents and one little severe added its further -ve role in trip.

    Overall, it was enjoyable and a learning experience for all of us.
    Do it before you die.

    Day 1

    Reached Wazirabad and after a little introduction, we decided to move to MianGee Hotel for tea break there. We were not willing to start self cooking there at any cost
    There we met few other bikers who were going to Kashmir, had a little gup shup with them, exchanged experiences with them and then started moving towards Rawalpindi.
    Plan was to rest for 2-3 hours at Ahmad's home before moving further. But when we reached there, we came to know that the landlord of his home was expired few hours before and they were preparing for funeral. So we decided to leave at the spot and will take some rest on the way somewhere near Abbottabad.

    Near Hari pur

    We reached Abbottabad at about 6am and now we started searching for Bakery Shops for buying bread to have our breakfast. Lakin itni subah koon bakery kholta ha, wo b Eid k 3rd day per.
    In search of Bakery, we reached Mansehra but yet none found. So we decided to have breakfast from a hotel. As breakfast finished, we thought of refueling our bikes, and also Kashif's bike got punctured and he was getting it fixed. After refueling all started moving and I was behind them. I was still looking for Bakery and found one. Bought 4 big breads and then moved towards Balakot road. No sign of any member there. Few Km ahead... even then none. I realized that they followed the wrong way and moved towards Bisham route.
    I called them back and then again journey started. On reaching Balakot, Shakeel wanted to have some fixes with his bike and we continued towards Naran. On the way we found worst traffic jams on 4 places. Bike had advantage of moving from sides, so we kept. At a point some 25 km ahead, we stopped and wait for Shakeel and Kashif, who were still in Balakot. At last they arrived and we moved further.

    Here are some shots on the way

    As we reached Kaghan, it started raining and in that traffic jam, we don't knew which member was where. I, Kashif and Ahmad were together at that point and when rain started, we pulled our rain suits out and thought of continuing our journey. Ahmed moved and I just realized that my Sleeping bag, Mat and Backpack were without shopping bags (used for rain protection), and there were heavy chances that they will get wet badly and thus ruining my night sleeping. Those shopping bags were with Saeed and there was no sign of him around. So I decided to stay in shelter for a while and see if rain stops. Kashif followed me. It took about 30 minutes to stop rain and then we moved ahead again.

    Shots upto Naran.
