    Default Riding on Makran Costal Highway at Night - Baluchistan

    AOA

    readers, I made a trip to gawadar from islamabad on motor bikes. from karachi to gawadar I rode after sun set. Updating this thread for my good friends and fellow countryman riders, who claim to travel from karachi to gawadar NON STOP AND DURING THE DAY TIME ONLY.

    So a couple of weeks before this last bakra eid me and my friend decided to go to gawadar on bike. When we left karach it was around 6pm and from there on there was thrill, adventure and fun. Right after sun set, we did not feel any sort of insecurity, since there were a few buses n trucks passing by every half hour or so.

    I posted a thread about my travel, the whole trip, you can read it here: https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/roa...rder-motorbike

    Any way the purpose of this post is to show these images of my travel at night to those, to those who take Baluchistan as an alien territory. People in baluchistan are as beautiful as any other place of this country. There is no issue in travelling at any given time at least from khi to gawadar, since this route is used by buses n trucks.

    I was advised specially to travel during the day time, by my fellows bikers and hikers, who travel in a group and that too only in day light. Well chain of events happened that i had to travel at night, otherwise I am not claiming I am a super man.

    Also, I would like people to know, in Pakistan there is no issues in travelling any where at any given time, well of course certain areas you just be a little careful during timings. I have been to quite a many places in asia and seen almost all of my country, most of the times i have travelled at night and only 2 people on 1 suzuki 150 gs.

    find some of my adventures here

    I am still in one piece living to tell my tales, if me, who is scared of heights, scared of dark, cant swim sort of a guy can travel without worry, then so can you!
