    Default Information for Sheringal, Dir to Kalam via Utror road/pass.

    Asalamoalaikum all dear biker gurus,

    I wonder if anybody has explore the track from Sheringal, Dir to Kalam via Utror Road/Pass. If its motor-able pass then it can be a good route for adventure lovers. From Google earth, track seems wide enough for motorbike but it passes through many glaciers and it also seems much steeper from kalam side than Dir side.

    Kindly reply if anybody has visited this route.

    Thanks and happy traveling,
    Rizwan Mir

    Wow.. I just read the thread posted by @faraz74 and it was worth reading all in one go. Excellent.

    Badwai (Some locals also call it Badgai etc) is jeepable pass which connect Upper Dir Valley to Swat Valley via Thal & Utror.
    We crossed this pass on jeep in September 2014. It is wide enough for any kind of jeep in season. We did not find any snow in September as it is end of summer and snow was melted.
    There is always huge amount of snow on this pass in early summer.....

    1- Yes, it is wide enough for any jeep..
    2- You are right that it is steeper from Utror to top than from thal to top. But 4x4 is must from both sides.
    3- It is a lovely place and lush green till August but not lush green after August and there will be many glaciers in early summer as well.
