    Crash Course Visit to Deosai & Rama -1635512

    Last month I shared a thread to ask professional bike travelers to know if we can visit Deosai and which route would be best bet and we did really got an excellent plan sorted out thanks to PW Senior member who guided is so good.

    Beside the Sober riders league The plan attracted to newcomers this time, one was my university mate (kashif khan) and the other guy was @angel82's university mate (Salar) who noticed our "bike only" tours and both were fully geared up to taste it this time.

    Every body applied for annual leaves a month before the plan and prapred there rides, as we had very "High Voltage" feedback on the condition of the trek specially in astore and skaurdu from @imranbhatti saahb...

    I my self was in the highest stress as I was taking the newly imported Trail for the first time and I was totally uncertain about its quality/stabilty e.t.c..

    In the meanwhile we learned that MAP Bikers Club has the Meetup on same date when we will cross Islamabad so we added that to list as well.

    I will be sharing the route and locations which we visited / missed, it was an adventure of a life time, but it wasn't enough, I will be heading there again and again... that place way more beautiful then I actually anticipated, and I know it will call us again and again...

    It was like to much beauty ... this time we even took less pictures and gazed towards Allah creation more, because you keep staring at the scenic beauty but you cant get enough and don't get bored easily.

    InshAllah Allah nay zindagi or moka de, har saal North jaien ***.

    Default Amazing day Ends while we Exit Astore Valley

    Quote Originally Posted by ibn.rizvi View Post

    The day ended at Rama Lake while we returned back and had an Excellent Mutton karahi in front of PTDC by "Qari Suleman ki Camp site"

    Then we returned to PWD rest house and took our stuff and loaded the bikes ready so we can decend back to Astore.

    Plan was to Decend to AStore get feed back about road conditions from Astore to Chashma / Chilum Chowki and spend night there as PWD manager told us that there are few hotels there.

    On the way back i spotted "Akhrot" tree and took a snap.. I also spotted Apple trees with Red Bllomy apples hanging but due to presence of local women around it I avoided make its pictures.

    Default Road to Chillum and Midnight Bike failure and Amazing Batli people

    While we were storming speedily towards chillum, @priates bikes throtle wire snapped and it became worse when we fitted new wire but carb Throttle cap refused to tight.. every body tried one by on to tackle the carb cap almost more then an hour in the middle of no where was spent..

    It was absolutely pitch back, loud astore river noise, The Milky way was full visible and @ammarzahid was completely mesmerized and busy gazing it.


    While we were strugling with the carb every single car or a biker stopped and asked that "if we are in problem they can help " I mean woah!! this is some thing new for us lahoris to hear... mostly when a car or a bike stops in dark by you.. you either get "F*ked" or snat*ched right ? but here every body was stoping to ask if they can be useful..


    Any ways finally we "some how" made it work temporarily so that we can move ahead to reach some spot where we have some "light" so that we can see properly why carb is not properly setting...

    we sent two riders ahead to reserve a room for us in some hotel ahead as it was getting late and really really cold so its better to reserve a room before every hotel closes doors ...

    No pictures were made in that deep dark.. so story continues... and we reached a hotel were we spotted our riders bikes parked and stopped there...

    I dont know the name of the Hotel it was just beside the Road... and they gae us the front road facing Room and asked us to Park the bikes beside the hotel...

    The parking was like 2 feet high with a steep inclined place from where you can get the bike up into the parking... First was me to climb up and park the bike among other already parked Bikes...

    then it was other riders who started to climb into parking lot and park the rides untill................

    Note: Rememeber its a crash Coarse...

    Talking The Crash Saga Continues - and pridor loses its virginity part by part

    While every body was Climbing up to the parking area.. Salar who was pretty much exhuasted went to climb up into the parking and lost balance andddddddddd..

    "KAPUT"


    the very next moment the bike was flipped and salar was under the bike with his twisted ankle... every body rushed and pulled him under the bike... and then @pirates rode it up in the parking.

    The incident freaked out the @mqsdrana so much that he handed over his bike to @pirates to take it up to the parking saying he dont want to end up under the bike

    No pics as it was deep night and in extremely cold and no body was willing to get out of helmet or body armour which was very good warm inside..

    Default The Ride to Deosai

    We woke up Early in the morning, as we were already up there in Chillum so we had idea that we can quickly climb up to shoesar and spend a whole day at deosai and after evening start to fall we can climb down to Skardu and spend night there.

    Salar was having a soar leg due to the crash he had last night and he was supported by the message of dicloran Gel constantly on various body parts.

    We bundled up every thing and just before the Final army post from where the road disect into two path one leading to minmarg and the other to deosai we had a lunch (chai, egg, paratha) ofcourse..

    then we bought entry tickets and entered the Deosai Valley,..

    We took a Groupie with Nanga Parbat behind us in its full glory in "Zabardast SUNLIGHT"

    Do notice we are waering extremly Tuff winter suits which are completly WIND/Water Proof and capable of facing Negative temprature in this heavy sun burn sunlight and still donot feeling hot enuf.. *IMAGINE* the coldness of that morning breeze...

    And then finally as we crossed the last ridge of mountain I was unable to grasp the sight of shoesar and thought its some thing artificial, kind of a blue carpet or some thing... and then I realised its the famous "Shoesar" and I was like "Subhaan Allah"
