    Default bike tour to naran babusar astore deosai...

    AOA guys
    I need info regarding bike trip to Naran,Babusar, Astore, Deosai on bikes from 1st August to 8th August.
    our ride Honda Pridor 2 person on one bike total person 6 on 4 bikes...
    Total Cost minimum 15000/person.

    Here is the final plan of our tour Naran till Deosai….
    Day 1:
    Departure from Raiwind city at 210hrs by Bus, bikes loaded on Bus from Raiwind city till Mansehra. I have some reference with the Tableghi markaz this problem solves very easily. Reach mansehra early in the morning then move towards Naran. Our 1st night stay in naran valley…
    Day 2:
    Early morning ready for next destination Chillas via Babusar pass… stay night at chillas.
    Day 3:
    Departure from chillas to Astor early ASAP to visit Rama valley and Rama Lake and back to Astor, night stay at Astor…
    Day 4:
    Next plan to hit the Deosai (Land of Giants) Visit Sheosar lake and Explore surroundings of Deosai Night stay at Bara Pani…
    Day 5:
    Next plan to come back at raikot bridge or chillas… night stay there.
    Day 6:
    No plan of Day 6 still coz it’s depend on our fitness coz its first time to travel such a long distance on bike in northern areas all guyz are new on that route so decide according to the situation. Plan to visit fairy meadows if possible. If can’t move forward then plan to hit KKH back to home via chilas, babusar, naran till mansehra. From mansehra Back home by bus again…

    Dear pakwheelers,
    Neend ur suggestion...
    0. we can extend our days 8 to 10 if we can manage to hit Fairy meadows...
    1. Is that possible Naran to Astor in 1 day on bike?
    2. Possible to drive back from Bara pani (Deosai) to Raikot bridge and take a jeep to Tattoo village and hike to fairy meadows In 1 day. Or stay at tattoo village and next day hike to fairy meadows and again night stay at fairy meadows. Any hotel or security issue at tattoo village?
    3. Bike parking available at raikot bridge or not?
    4. Jeep rent from raikot to tattoo village?
    5. I don’t want to drive in that area in night so kindly guide me according the situation of that area… ur’s suggestion real helpful for me…

    Dear Sohaib,

    If you are using new bikes then you may not face any problem on steep turns. If bike's engine is weak then you will have to drop one person to climb easily in some steep turns.

    According to your plan till Deosai, total cost you mentioned is much. It will be maximum 10000 each because you are traveling in August and august considers as off season.

    Its all secure to visit. As for road conditions: till Lulusar lake road is fine. after that its under construction till Babusar Top. From KKH till Chillum road is manageable but narrow road. From Chillum a few kilometers are ok but after that till Bara Pani no road but dirt track and if there is rain then dirt track becomes mud track. In August I hope you will see rental camps at three spots: 1: Sheosar Lake, 2: A few kilometers after Sheosar lake, 3: At Bara pani.

    I think you should extend the days. According to my experience you need at least 3 to 4 days to travel till Deosai from Lahore.

    I hope you have seen my thread, if not then check this link to get idea of the road conditions.

    In my humble opinion Sir, This august won't be an off season especially the date OP has mentioned (First week of August). because Ramzan is coming from 18June to 18 July so after that everyone gonna rush towards Naran Kaghan. Still 15k is more than enough for bike tours, Depending how you manage it. But riders should be EXTRA careful on road during peak season because of excessive traffic.
    2nd thing you need to consider is Rain because of moon soon. You should have water proof bags and proper biking rain kit etc to cover in case of rain.

    U can make from astore to naran in 1 day. We did it last year.
    Problem we faced at babusar top, due to high altitude, our bikes power was near to zero.
    Same problem at Rama and Deosai.
    U better hit astore directly on bike. It will save u a couple of days.
    NATCO will do the job for u :-)
    Stay Blessed
