    Cool Long Way Riders: Quetta to Kalash, Shandoor, Khunjerab Pass in July

    This Tour was very awaited tour, as Kalash, and Shandoor has been my Dream destinations from many years. and always left due to some commitments in daily life routine, and then always Due to weather, and the fact that from Quetta, Balochistan these far areas are really difficult to plan and visit, as have to keep 4-6 extra days compare to Pindi- Islamabad.
    so this time no excuse on my mission, and to start this session tour from Mardan Side.
