    SO continuing story.

    Reaching Naran (rather many few kilometers before) we could realize the situation there. there was no way on the road. Both lanes for travelling were occupied by vehicles going towards Naran. Miles and Miles you can see traffic which may move @ 1 inch per hour. Taking advantage of bike, we managed to enter Naran, but again we were not able to pass through it, So we used bypass road and reached Safulmalouk bridge.
    Naveed started looking for chicken meat for dinner+lunch ( we could not take lunch in hurry to reach there). But wherever he went, he got only one answer..... Bhai karahi mill jae gi, Ghost nahi ha. No one was willing to sell raw meat.
    Seeing rush and situation, we instantaneously decided to move for Jalkhad. It was getting dark (almost magrib time), so we ran like if police was following us. We wanted to be there before it get too dark. But you know when you have nailed fate
    At Batakundi we found meat and bought. Again travelling started. Now it was too dark and only headlights were not good enough for fast travelling in that area. Surprisingly none of us had HID during the trip. Only Shakeel had LED which was just enough for him. Anyways we reached Jalkhad in a status that every one was wet with shoes and half jeans.
    It was quite calm there but strong wind was blowing. Few people were stuck there and they were having no choice other than to stay in camp of Puncture shop along with their families. That dhaba was just like a khaima with tools for puncture inside and nothing else, not any bed or charpai or anything and 2 families had to stay there. I strongly advise people with families to pre-book these areas in such rush and peak season days.
    Do it before you die.

    Bravo my friends. The fuel has been a commodity in the mountains this year. To me start from Chitral Side always makes more sense with Shandur and Ghizer Vallies in the plan. Going and returning over the same path sometimes lack excitement.

    Well done and keep up the good work.

    Above images were in low light, so is the quality.

    So reaching Jalkahd, we started looking for a place for camping. Luckily found a place for 2 camps there. Installed our camps and now the next question was about cooking dinner
    Well, my calculation was that with that strong wind which was changing its direction again and again and the fatigue we all had PLUS the cold and wet condition of every member..............it was too risky to cook at that moment Also the Dhaba owner was not willing to sell us bread, instead he wanted us to dine there. Finally we decided to keep the meat in river's cold water and let we cook it in the morning. For now, lets take dinner from Dhaba.
    I, Naveed and Azfar went first, while Saeed, Kashif and Shakeel stayed there and tried to pick the pebbles beneath their camp. We ordered a plate of loobia and a plate of channa. Loobia was tasty. On our return from PC Dhaba, I started preparations for coffee making in the camp, while rest of 3 were out for dining.




    I can not forget that Coffee with Bounty,

    .... Extreme fatigue
    .........Mild strong n chill wind
    ..............Puffs of Turkish Cigar
    ...................Sitting on a rock outside camp in starlight
    .........................Away from motor and electromagnetic acoustic pollution


    aaaaaahhh...........mera Mustansar Hussain jag gya us din.

    No, actually we never got wet because of rain, rainsuits were good enough to keep us dry . That was because of crossing streams from glaciers in dark. In day light you can cross them without putting your feet in water as you know where stone are and where not. It was not the case in dark.

    Each was with one Rain Suite. I think only Shakeel and Kashif were with Rain Coats. For bike tours, always try to have Rain Suits with separate trouser and upper. Rain Coat do not protect your legs properly.
    Yes we were with warm jackets and other stuff to cope it.

    Further, try to find suits with waterproof zipper, rather than buttons.
