    No one waved at me to stop so i moved through, but suddenly heard my friend's bikes horns behind me. Looked back in the mirror and they were stopped at check post. I returned back to check post and policeman there started showing attitude that he stopped me and i ignored him. I felt angry but since we were in pardes so decided to play it cool. My friend tried to defend me by saying" sir us ko pata nahi tha" and in answer he showed the gun on his shoulder and replied" ye bandooq humain isi liyay dya hai na, hum peechay se goli maaray ga to sab pata chal jaayega"
    Dil to kya ke " la lawan jutti te ho jaawan shuroo". what a dumbass.

    Then he said" ye kaisa hulyaa bana kar jaa rahay ho, khunjerab pohanchnay se pehlay hi koi maar dalay ga". Now this one my friends took seriously and after reaching besham concluded that policeman was pointing out their pant shirt dresses. And they better use Shalwaar Qamis till they cross the Chilas.

    Faced rain at Chattar plains so covered up the luggage.
    Not far from Besham City....

    I had bike toolkit, Puncture kit, extra tubes, complete pana set, paichkas, palas, wrench, pipe wrench etc... with me.

    For safety guidelines, always ride calm when coming down from height and on turns in hilly areas. Don't ride after maghrib.
    good advise ..will keep that in mind while doing my trip

    In case you guys wondering what is written on this pass,

    中华人民共和国 (Zhong Hua Ren Min Gong He Guo), which means "People's Republic of China"

    Did i ever mention that i am "Elementary Level" Certified in Chinese.

    Gateway to China. No permission to cross to other side. You can only go under the pass, not across it.

    I guess China has built the Pass few feet into their territory, may be that's why.
