    Exclamation The wind, bike & heart; Tour de KPK

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the KPK province of Pakistan. KPK is known as the land of hospitality.This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experiences & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

    Great trip and beautiful and detailed coverage....If you did not take written notes, then I must say, you have a good memory...

    You bypassed Mianwali, You could have taken the Kohat Tunnel route via Kalabagh. It is a beautiful place...Kalabagh is the first place where the mighty Indus comes out of the mountains and in the plains Just a few Kilometers up is the Kalabagh Dam site which is frozen in time...You could have visited that aswell...

    Any how, I am enjoying the thread and the pics a lot...keep them coming.....

    P.S. I agree this is the best way to get your mind away and forget what hurt you..

    This stream dries up in August. And if you come here in late season you wouldn't find any water flowing in it. July is the best month to explore these areas.
