    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 ***.

    Instead of moving further the Jheel mesmerised us all so hard in its first impression that we all just stopped at the Ridge for quite a few minutes before we spotted a small dot just beside Jheel ... it was our "Shooter" rider @ammarzahid who already reached there and getting DRUGGED by the view already..

    Ammarzahid spotted..

    They waved at us to stop, so we did... first the admired our rides (Oh yes! lol) then they asked how much they have to climb further to actually see rama lake, I told them its already evening and trekking by foot means they will reach there by dark and its snow falling there so its not a good idea to proceed.

    They should go back, also we inquired how come they are wandering alone here and learned they bunked there college trip and belong to Peshawar Medical College (no doubt why they were so beautiful.. lol),

    College was on trip to here and staying at PTDC below in Rama, and teachers know they are resting where in real they bunked to go on Adventure. (I was Like really ? W*F ??)

    They started to insist us to give them a ride of bikes as they were digging bikes too much so we gave them free ride ...

    After this mind blowing meetup with ladies we descended further... while all the other members were staring at our "Mulakat" from below the mountain.. every body was like... "Number liya number liya number liya" ... mene kaha dosto I told her I am married.. ha ha h ha ha h hah ah h a and she was like "really.... app bilkul bhi married nahi lagtay.. bu ha a h ha ha hh ah ah h a"

    After that we reached a "Tent hotel" just ahead of PTDC he made "Dumba Karahi" even he was unable to properly steam it in such a short time.. but the mutton was very tasty...

    Any body who goes there must try him his name is Qari Suleman and has a Camping site and tent hotel just ahead of PTDC.

    The day was full of Adventure including Offroad Riding, Trail Testing, Glacier visit.. and meeting fairies in meadows was an icing and topping on it/.... lol

    Exactly we all were having same feeling at first sight of Sheosar Lake during our visit.

    Default Trail Bike and my over confidence... PART # 1/2

    Before we left for this tour we met @imranbhatti and he advised me "waqar bhai you have a trail bike apko asal maza tab he aye ga k you leave the road exit the jeep track and wander into the actual deosai plains phir apko maza aye ga ...."

    He was right, I left the road and entered the highest plains of the world offroad just after we left Shoesar lake...

    Then I stopped at one point and switched off the bike and noticed I wsa not alone there.. marmots were every where, then I went ahead and again spotted ground lizard I dont know what its called properly... and each and every animal was keeping an eye on this strange looking creature which is roaming around in there habitat.. lol

    I also spotted Falcon Diving like a lightening and the rising back above with a prey.. I was at a distance but I knew it made a kill... it was an amazing experience.

    Default Trail Bike and my over confidence... PART # 1/2 - The Consequences

    "#remembering the crash coarse"

    After wandering around in such a beautiful place and by experiencing rough Climbibg at Rama I was over confident that I am not riding a dirt bike but some kind of a Jet Fighter or some thing which can do or go where ever I want to...

    While I came back to the Jeep track I noticed @salar.gilani and @pirates stopped at a water stream crossing ... I thought probably they have stopped to identify the best spot to cross that stream..

    I came like a "BOSS" and instead of chosing some shalow spot I just blindly jumped into it..

    KABOOM!!!

    all of the instance it felt like i dived into a Open Gutter Shuker Allah ka k it was a natural pure water stream werna tu kabara ho gya tha...

    Whole Bike went into water I instantly heavy throttled to quickly get out of it... bike did struggeld got few feets untill it lost traction compltly.. Engine was still running as trails haev high silencers and water was boiling around engine as engine was full hot..

    Salar and pirates were looking at me with strange faces ... "waqar bhai ap udher kis chaker men pani men ghus gaye hain"

    Then they came and pulled me out of water...

    My clothes and stuff inside box were all soaked as the also submerged half into water lol!!
