    Default Motorcycle Tour to Neelam Valley AJK Pakistan

    Aslam u Alaikum everyone...

    Here i am again, this time the tour was designed to Visit Neelam Valley till Taubutt on Motorcycles

    Initial plan was between five of our friends.

    1. Ali Khalid ... .....With his Suzuki Gs150
    2. Me... Mansoor Ahmed Zia ..... Suzuki Gs150
    3. Masood Ahmed .... Suzuki Gs150
    4. Salman Maqsood ..... Suzuki Gs150
    And one senior member of SBSB Group
    5. Sir Asif Raza sahab .... Suzuki Gs150

    Now we had three to four meetings to design the tour, as it was our first tour on Bike and we were gathering as many information as we like.

    For the same, we touch many riders, and few of them were Ubaid Rehman, and gathered information from Gohar Hayat and Sajjad from Facebook as well.

    We had five days to travel 1300+ km both sidr to cover, Neelam Valley AJK Pakistan which is spread around neelam river and this valley is located very near to LOC with Indian occupied Kashmir

    Dates which we had were, 1st May to 5th May.

    Initial plan was,

    Day 1 :

    Departure from Lahore at 50 and Reach kel or Sharda (which was after redesigning last at Muzaffrabad)

    2. Day 2 :

    Departure from Muzafarabad and reach Kel and then Trek to Aurang Kel

    3. Day 3 :

    Departure from Kel to Taubutt and come back at Sharda

    4 Day 4 :

    Departure from Sharda and reach Galliyat

    5 Day 5 :

    Departure from Galliyat and Reach back Lahore

    This was the initial plan and it was planned between five riders ...

    Plan is good but Lahore to Sharda is not possible (I think), I think you should add atleast 1 more day OR
    Lahore to Muzaffarabad is more feasible.

    I did same 5-6 day trip on my Pridor from lahore to Lahore.. (
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bik...oing-green-ajk
    )

    First Picture i think from Sarhad Hotel, KEL...
    Leave early morning for Taobat from KEL, as it needs 3 hours atleast 1 side.

    So as it was planned and majir design of route n plan was designed by Ubaid Bhai... We gathered at Regal Chowk The Mall at 60 am... Exchange our vuews as it was our first long tour.

    Me and Masood bhai had all the combine tours which were done in One day but others ... It was first time for Salman and Asif with us..

    So mindset and flexibility and respect is the key as we had several discussion...

    Important part was we all three trust each others opinion n tends to bow down... Listen each other and thats how we gain our confident....

    One night before i had every packed and already tried to tie everything on my bike so that i wud see how much weight is going to be on bike ...

    In the morning i was little late to get up up rushed for all the things and packed it on bike... Yes my wife helped me alot for the same and left the home at 5:45am

    But as i was going to reach main road of Cavalry Ground i just realized that i dont have the original Registration book of Bike wth me... I went back.. And took it and now it was 5:50am...

    I didnt rushed and went at good pace... And Found out Salman is already there ..

    It was now 6:10 and after five minutes Masood Bhai joined us as well..

    Nice.
    I visited Neelum valley 3 years back. Can't wait to see it again through a biker's eye in this thread.
    Though start of May seems a bit early for this tour.

    First stop after the Lahore start up was Gujranwala .... And i told everyone i am running on low tank so needed to fuel up at Gujranwala ....

    We reach Gujranwala in brisk pace and in just 45 mins... We went for Re fueling and then went straight to Salman Sweets...

    There we had our breakfast as nobody has done with breakfast that early...

    At Salman Sweet, we had Halwa Puri Nashta ... And expecting the bill around 300+ easily ... But when bill came in... It was just 130 Rs and we were astonished about the rates ....

    Price was low and quality plus taste was tooo good... I haven't had such a tasty and quality halwa puri anywhere ....

    Done with breakfast... We checked our luggage and found salman side mirror bolt slipped... This was the first problem we faced...

    We tried taphlone tap... Elphy... But it was not solved...

    We continued toward rawalpindi... Trying to get it solved...

    One stopped at Welding shop ... But found the grips are of silver and side mirros is off steel so welding is not an option...

    We continued till jehlum and there we fixed it with depoxy ....

    We then reached at the decided place at Faizabad Interchange and met Ammar Zahid and Asif Sahab... Both greeted us and gave the things which belongs to ammar and check the other bike and the luggage ... As we wanted to have maximum three stop before Muzaffarabad ...

    We left from there at 30 and cruised to our first decided stop to get the fuel top up... And it was just before the Muree express way... And then decided to have two stop before Kohala... One at Murree express way middle and then one somewhere near Kohala for tea...

    We cruised at a good speed... Mostly stay at 70km/h but yes did some good ride at 95-100 as well... As the road and curves demanding little bit thrill as well... But normally stayed together...

    One first stop some where near Jhika Gali at Murree express way.... Explained others to keep an eye and check whether the rider following u is intact or not... As we are only four so we decided not to leave anyone behind....

    I kept my self at behind .. Tailing all the other through out the tour as i was carrying most of the essential tools and pucture kits... So wanted to stay behind .... So as they speed up ... I have to increase to catch them up...

    And i must Panther Trekker Tyre 90/90-18 is equally good to Dunlop Cruiser... TVS JUmbo and Other indian brands... Best grips even on major leaning on curves at good speed... Bike does not go anywhere ...
