    I am speaking about when you climb to Deosai from Chilam Choki. There are just a few feet that are tough around the very top.

    As for Babusar, you will face difficulty on your ride back climbing Babusar. Its rather steep at some parts but otherwise just fine.
    yes we are mentally prepared for that

    2. Its a good choice to make it to Sheosar for the night but another option to consider a night stop at Chashma Hotel just before reaching Chillam Choki. That location at Chashma is ideal in that there is a river flowing with fresh trout that you may want to try catching plus a full fledged hotel for great and inexpensive food. You can camp in the valley next to the hotel at the base of the river. The next morning you can easily reach Sheosar Lake and carry on to Skardu, you will have an entire day to enjoy Deosai"

    Assalam O Alaikum,

    1. Could you able to provide any pictures of the above mentioned hotel before Chillam Choki? Map coordinates will also work

    Thanks

    Walaikum Assalam

    I don't have map coordinates per say because it does not show up on Google Maps, but its just a half hour before reaching Chillam Choki on the Astore Deosai Road, and you can't miss it.

    There are two hotels side by side on your left as you make a small turn on the road with the river running on your right hand side. Its the only two restaurants there. Now this was last year and maybe another small hotel is added to this location.

    In any case, you can always ask people as you ride by where Chashma Hotel is, the locals know it very well and its right on the rout.

    Regards,

    Sulaiman Bhai

    Another friend of ours, Mr. Abdul Waheed Tariq and his wife crossed Babusar both ways last year in their Mehran with luggage.
