    Default Mountain Roamers' Bike Ride to Kanhatti (SOUN)

    Here's another of my bike rides I undertook on Sunday 20th. The journey started at about 7:30am, five of us on three bikes, the destination was the Kanhatti garden in the famous Soun valley.

    Both ways we did a total of about 150km ride. Following are the pics with the commentary.

    Just as you are about to start climbing the hill, you pass through two gate-like pillars with a brief history of this passage:

    Walking through the garden our way was blocked by this camel whose intentions did not seem too good so we changed our course:

    Another naural spring (bigger one) that flows through the garden:

    We could see very small fish in this water but not big enough to be captured by the camera's eye:

    Mountain Roamers' Bike Ride to Kanhatti (SOUN) - Image047

    There were these very old graves here, I wonder if soldiers from the World War are buried here !!
    Mountain Roamers' Bike Ride to Kanhatti (SOUN) - Image045

    The place is good enough to be visited. Especially, one would love to have a bath in the spring we saw in the Kanhatti garden, so when someone of you go there, don't forget to take Shorts with you to enjoy the spring there.
    Hope you liked the pics....

    Ironically, the only rider wearing the helmet was none other than me. For reference watch the pic with three bikes in line, mine is CG125 with the helmet hanging on the mirror.!!

    Thanks for the appreciation. Kanhatti and Khabeki Lake can be visited in one stretch, they are not much separated. From Nowshera you have to take the road toward Mardwal and from Mardwal Khabeki lake is about 20 minutes drive on bikes.
    If you have to come from Kalar Kahar, then you'll have to Travel from Kalar Kahar to Pael and the road turning right toward Jaaba will take you to the Soun valley. We have some members on board from the Soun valley, they'll be able to guide you about the said route properly.
