    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

    Exactly !! I was asked to carry camps as we will be camping. I carried two camps one was for regular use and self opening and the other was for very heavy use like wind or snow

    But MMA was not interested in camping at any site and this was imranafzal's first tour so he was like Allah Miyan ki Gayen although i insisted on 1st day that we should camp as thats what iam carrying them for. But we opted for Hotels.

    There were excuses like:

    1. Its cold
    2. We werent able to find camping site as we reach in dark (Logical to some extent)
    3. I dont know north and didnt try to be audacious as MMA knows north better than me

    And i was carrying all the stuff literally useless apart from my sleeping bag

    Background:

    While leaving 2 days back for Taobat, MMA said that he will be extending his plans by atleast Thursday although it was decided we will be at Islamabad by Sunday.
    @imranafzal4 had some commitments so he was quote frustrated while i was totally free and didnt mind even if the plan was extended by 1 week

    But i told @imranafzal4 we will go as per our commitment although it was my dire wish to continue touring with MMA. But still commitment is commitment so we woke up early next day while MMA decided to stay at same hotel

    And bad news was Pridor was again flat so went immediately to Puncture shop and asked him to put new tube

    Bus tussi puncture gindey jao is trip wich @vickytulla @angel82 @RocketScience
