    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

    Lesson two : Bikes must Opt trackker Tyre... or go tubeless

    noticing there was absolutly no problem with MMA's ride so far ? which tyre he was using.... either there was a difference of a tyre or the riding style he opted was soft on tyres ???

    few of my very old school time freinds and very novice riders just came back a couple of weeks agoe from north .. there tour was comprised of more then two weeks (18days in total) and the roamed complete AJK then entered balakot from muzafarabad and then went to Astore/pasu and all uper region like deasai... on the way back the opted for the chitral route..... I mean they did not missed a single place....

    and you know what the only face twp punctures one on a shitty GT road and other in again on some high way and they replaced tube themself in order to avoid any poor repairman handling.... I wonder why the situation totally tanked for you guys...

    @vickytulla may be you are right as MMA was an experienced rider of north.

    But there are some stats that contributed to fatal punctures

    1. I was low on air pressure as i keep it low during off-roading
    2. Pillion riding did soney pe sohaga, and we all know the under inflated tyre is prone to punctures
    3. After that it was all mis-management as i didnt bothered to look into tyre which resulted into another puncture.
    4. No experience when it comes to fixing punctures so that also contributed to again punctures
    5. Not having any thing to shave off the tube and make it rough thus preparing to receive solution
    6. Deducting all the odds, genuinely i had only 1 puncture. Rest were due to mis management

    * I had sequel of punctures after 2 years. Last time i had puncture was almost 2 years despite all those long tour's
    * Yaan meri kismet che zalat likhi si
    * By bikes tyre is specially designed for highway's its surface is not flat, and huge grip pattern on side allows me to lean more. Iam using Dunlop Cruiser

    Please note one more thing, this is also from personal experience. And that is try to avoid taking your bikes to pathways or areas which are not usually used by the traffic. This includes rough shoulders of the roads, short excursions to the sides for examples at one time you went off road to a beach like area. Places which are not used by the regular traffic have nails and other sharp objects which damage the motorcycle tyres. Also particularly in Kashmir most of the construction is wooden and nails are an essential part of this construction so you find them everywhere. Avoiding less used tracks reduces your chances of getting punctures due to nails. Otherwise it is definitely most of the times your luck. Cheers,

    Very nice tour guys! Thanks for sharing amazingly good pictures of Neelam Valley. Sorry to hear about your puncture (again n again) issues but these are the beauty of adventures. If all goes well in a riding to remote areas then we can not call it an adventure. Sadness, feeling of give up, anger and then hope, struggle and aim to face difficulties is the best part of adventures.

    Why not rent a puncture wala for 5 days and give him a free ride along us... we sure will have relatively very powerful bikes in the pack to have even pillion rider with no issue...

    just thinking loud...

    You are quite right but wooden chips are more dangerous as compared to nails due to the area covered. And they can easily puncture tyre and Keel to Taobat track is full of those chips

    Luckily the Jimny guys were also leaving the same day so we put all out luggage in thier jeep and asked them we will patch up firstly in Shardah then in Muzaffarabad and then in Islamabad, exchanged phone nums as well

    I bought my own puncture kit especially the sacred Air-Pump in-case needed as the other puncture kit was with MMA

    And hence we left for Shardah by Sharp 9.20
