    Default Travel Gurus Please suggest Best Route to Deosai and landmarks on the way

    We are planning to travel Just after monsoon, first two weeks of September to visit Deosai Plains We will have 8~9 Holidays in Hand.

    Travel Gurus Please suggest Best Route to Deosai and landmarks on the way -1602500

    I had a couple of questions to ask to travel gurus to help out sort the best route and all visitable locations on that route with in given time.

    Initially we did little googling in PW and found many threads relating to this route I did noticed and ranasherdil and asifcae and many other pro travelers have guided very welll..

    so aftrer hopping around few threads this is the first CRUDE Draft of Plan:

    Day 1 Saturday: 5 Sept -> Lahore to Balakot whole Day ride and rest in Balakot any hotel (suggestions are welcome)

    Day 2 SUNDAY: 6 Sept -> Balakot to Chillas (or ca we go ahead will we have enuf time if we leave bala kot early morning ?)

    Day 3 Monday: 7 Sept -> Chillas to Astore 150 KM ( few threads indicate its Offroad around 60+ km rama lake 10KM, other then rama lake any other spot to visit in this route ? if we are unable to reach astore in time which place would be best to stay at night ? )

    Day 4 Tuesday: 8 Sept -> Astore to DeoSai spend day at deosai reach and rest in sakrdu in time (120 KM offroad Jeep track) rest at Sakardu, but we have absolutly no idea which places to visit in deosai, all I read in a thread is that there is a sheosar lake, but any plaec else then please giude..

    Day 5 Wednesday: 9 Sept -> Visit to Kanchar Jheel near sakrdu round-trip back to KKH Rest at RaiKot or Chilas {200KM approx} as I notice approx 200KM long off road track will it be cover able in a day ? if we are unable to finish it which are the spots where we can spend night ? what other destinations are in this route which we can visit?

    Day 6 Thursday # 10th Sept -> Buffer DAY becuase I am sure we will slip late one day so its undecided might be consumed in Day 5 plan ? or what you guys suggest ?

    Day # 7 Friday 11th Sept -> We shud reach Balakot in time as a whole week is about to top up...

    Day # 8 Saturday 12th Sept - > we shud be in Islamabad and drain "THE THAKAWAT"

    Day # 9 Sunday 13th Sept -> Reach Lahore and rest (6 hours non speedy Lazy ride)

    - We all will be riding standard Daily comuting motorcycles, including CG, GS, Piaggios, GD e.t.c..
    - Will carry all tools and parts which can keep the bikes vital signs up.
    - Will back up petrol in case of petrol unavailabilty
    - No Plans for camping/Fishing basically sight seeing week long ride.
    - Almost all will be first timers to go baltistan

    Other then the questions I asked above few questions banging in my head are:

    - Is pillion Riding OK any one travelled pillion ?
    - Threads suggest 2k per day on average for hotelling and stay expenses and around 30~35liter of petrol for a bike, Is it for peak Season or offseason (not talking about petrol but living exp)

    Suggestions are wellcome ...

    This is Manthokha Waterfall and is about 2: 00 to 2:30 hours drive from Skardu. Accessible by bike and jeep
    While moving towards Khaplu from Skardu, if you do not cross Indus river anywhere, the moment you realize that you are going off the river... you are on the track to Manthokha Waterfall, your destination should be Manthokha.
