    Default Perfectly unscripted tour to Deosai, Skardu

    Aslam u Alaikum ... plan was to go on the big tour first time on Bike... and it was planned one year back when we came back from Khajut Bikers event...

    plan was to Visit Deosai and Skardu along with the surrounding areas ...

    but as the time was passing many of us were not sure whether they can carry on with the plan or not... debate was how many days we need to cover Deosai, Rama, Rupal, etc and Skardu, Khaplu and Shigar ... and it concluded that we shud get minimum 9-10 days for the tour.

    the figure of 9-10 days were little difficult for many.. as i didnt wanted to do this in hurry... so holidays for me was never been a problem... but few problems at home hindering me.

    we arranged many meetups from May to July ... and as usual at start, seven of our friends were interested and wen we done with a meeting after Eid .. numbers came down to three ... excluding me as well as my mother was out of country and things at home not looking good at all...

    Plan was :
    day 1:
    23 July departure from Lahore and Reach Balakot or Paras
    day 2:
    24 July departure from Balakot or Paras to Reach Astore
    Day 3:
    explore Rama, and Rupal sides and stay at Astore or Rama Meadows
    Day4:
    Visit Deosai, And there surrounding Lakes and Reach Skardu
    Day 5:
    Visit Surrounding Lakes at Skardu and Stay at Skardu
    Day 6:
    Visit Khaplu and Shigar and Come Bk to Skardu
    Day 7:
    Return to Jaglot from Skardu
    Day 8:
    reach Balakot or Nathiya gali
    Day 9:
    reach lahore ...

    one day was kept as reserve so that in any mishaps we can adjust.

    this plan was finalized on fourth day of Eid ... and there are 20 odds days left to get on with it..

    so after the drop in numbers ... few people decided that they will go for Neelam Valley as they had less holidays available....

    now there were two group decided...
    one with Rai Ehtesham, Farhan Zahid, Rai Zain, Rai Abdullah and Saqib ul Hassan
    other was Me, Hassan Gillani, Masood Ahmed and Bilal Khan

    salman maqsood who travelled with us last year was indecisive whether to join us or Neelam Tour again as he already did that ...

    dates were separate as well as we had to leave on 23 July and neelam tour will b on 26 July ... as Rai Abdullah bike is yet to come to Lahore via Truck.

    but one last meeting on 19th July concludes that we will leave together on 23rd July early at 12:30 am

    on 21st July, i was totally went jam pack at Office ... could not do single packing and preparation for the tour... and i was the only one who was totally gone clueless whether to go on tour or stay home .... but on last meeting with Hassan bhai, Masood and And our Friend Ubaid ur Rehman .. they backed me and supported me ...

    next day it was all again jam pack at office.... i reached home at 8pm with no preparation... got busy with home and then i had a call from Friends n tour members...

    they asked... how much i am prepared .. and i answered.... i havent done anything ... 0.001℅ packing n preparation...

    but i started it... at 11:15pm only 1 hour and fifteen minutes before departure ...and completed it at 120am ... just 30mins from departure ...

    i got a call from other members... they asked me to take rest as everyone is ready but due to first day long ride schedule everyone shud b fresh... they asked me that we shud leave early in the morning..at 5 am... so then i went to sleep.... for a power nap at 12:30am ...

    at 4:45am they were all at my home ... salman came with them as well but he was ready for another neelam valley tour due to less holidays available ... and then Rain started pouring down.... it was raining like hell as we were looking at each other...finally rain stopped and we left the home lahore at 6am .. we r now late as per decided schedule..

    after staying at Shell Petrol pump we top up the Fuel Tanks and left for Muzafarabad as we had in our minds that we need to reach balakot atleast today to give a go at Astore but Almighty Allah has planned differently for us .... it started raining heavily and we stopped there for few mins and then left in the rain ... and reached near Patriata Road for tea and snacks ..

    we decided not to stop for another tea session as we were getting late and then boom... one of our new tour member got his bike's wiring burned and his bike got dead ... now we had to stop and fix it...

    he was from other neelam trip member but as we were marching along with them as one unit till muzafarabad we had to stop for the repair ...

    i sorted out the problem with the help Bilal and checked the wires...

    it was all burned ... specially gead and back light wires... i bypass them and repair the six pin main jack and temporarily fix and asked him to get it repair from muzafarabad next day... after fixing it.. it ws almost maghrib and we finally reached muzafarabad at 9pm

    Now as we helped others for Room booking and then for dinner... it ws 10pm already ... i am myself very desperate as we were way way behind from our first day target and Balakot was still two hours away from us ...

    and the news from Shengas was not good at all... it was all blocked due to Landslide...massive landslide ...and we had chance to use one route ... astore to DEOSAI and Deosai to skardu and back to same route ...

    on dinner our Google Map n guide Hassan bhai asked us to leave that Deosai for next year as it is little riskier... only one road is open and if it gets block as well we wud b stuck there for three days atleast ...

    now wat wud b the next target ... no body knows now...
