    Default Youngi's Adventures: The Echoing Green (AJK)

    Youngi's Adventures: The Echoing Green (AJK) - nWMaXe0

    Asslam-o-Alaikum:


    I have never used the word "Adventure" in any of my trips despite of being into touring from last 4 years and have covered almost every location of Pakistan on my bike with an exception of North. But this trip was truly a masterpiece when it comes to adventure.

    Faced flat tyre, shivering cold breeze, heavy rain, hailstorm, running bike over camelion, racing with horses, broken rear shoe in drum, slipped chain, sleeping in truck wala hotel with insanely poor hygenie, insanely long heard of sheep's occupying road, eating canned food, having chai infront of indian occupied kashmir, witnessed a fellow jeep accident, group politics and what not you name it and we faced it.

    But indeed Kashmir's beauty is so enchanting it overcome all the hurdles.It was a complete adventure to visit the undisturbed beauty of beautiful Pakistan.

    We were three bikers from different regions and localities but pooled in our ideas and effort through pakwheels platform.

    1. Imran Afzal from Lahore (Atlas Honda Pridor 100)
    2. Muhammad Imran from Sialkot (Ravi Piaggio 125)
    3. Sikander Akram from Islamabad (Ravi Piaggio 125)

    Preface:

    It was decided that we will leave at 3rd morning of eid and return by next Monday in anycase. As Imran Afzal bhai has some important project ongoing for which he had to report in any case. We planned to do camping so we distributed stuff and duties in-time to avoid any confusion.

    1. Imran Afzal is responsible for bringing cooking posts, utensils, pans and stove
    2. Muhammad Imran is responsible for bringing all the stuff like canned food, cleaning stuff, puncture kit and tool kit
    3. I was responsible for arranging camps and camping related stuff

    Every detail will be shared stepwise so that it wont ruin the taste of keeping interest in whole story expense details will be shared at the end of the thread as well

    Locations Covered: Islamabad, Muzaffarabad, Kundal Shahi, Shardah, Keel --> Taobat

    Day 1 = Lahore to Islamabad
    Day 2 = Islamabad to
    Kundalshahi
    Day 3 = Kundalshahi to
    Keel
    Day 4 = Keel to
    Phulwai
    Day 5 = Phulwai to
    Taobat and back to Keel
    Day 6 = Keel to
    Shardah and Shardah to Islamabad


    So here's a small intro of bikers riding to devour the mesmerizing and enchanting beauty of Echoing Green i.e Kashmir (Neelum Valley)

    Full gang with loaded stuff

    And hence i got flat tyre We immediately took out tool kit and puncture kit to avoid wasting time, I had a new tube as a standby Luckily there was an army post up hill. An army person came down asking about any help to which we replied we need a cup of tea

    We gave him 2x milk pouches for cooking tea and he was kind enough to make a very very tasty tea.

    The only thing i went wrong here is i didnt checked the tyre as i was to much confident that the nozzle was leaking hence there wont be anything puncturing the tyre. But i was wrong as soon as i finished fitting tyre again it went flat again soon.

    And now of the smarty was fixing the tyre and asked me to step back as he is professional. He cuted the tube while putting it back into tyre we already spent 3 hours and it was really dark with extreme cold.

    We thanked them and managed to reach a truck side hotel negotiated to 500/night. It was one of the horrible nights in my life as the room was full of kinda creepy bugs, extreme cold and "Soney pe Sohaga" we werent carring our sleeping bags.

    So had to use thier stuff and it was i cant explain.
