    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:

    Thanks for the apreciation dear. Yes this particular area was much deserted. On the route from Khabeki to Kanhatti we saw only three cars on our way and one bus that was of some school trip, the rest of the journey was just us and the road.

    ^NO. In fact the Soun valley is slightly away from the Kalar Kahar valley. Have you heard of the place Skaisar? We have air force set-up there too with a radar that covers the whole country. Soun valley is a wort seeing place and if some attention is given to it, people will forget Muree, Ayubya, etc.

    We visited the Saon Valley yesterday here a few pics of the Uchali Lake. There was a kool breeze and the air was absolutely fresh. Road is not bad but there are a few bad patches. Went in my Honda Civic 05.

    Brother "Khanhati Garden" is just before Khabeki. When u are going from Jabba 2K.M. before Khabeki one right turn road is going to "Khanhati Garden". At that turning there is one signe board directing toward "Khanhati Garden". Khanhati Garden is 6K.M. inside from that point.

    Take the M2 frm Lahore and exit on Kalar Kahar interchange. Take Khushab road till Pail Chowk turn right and till Jaba.That is the entrance to the Soan Valley. From Jaba drive till Nowshehra and then turn right on the Sakesar Road. There are two lakes Khabeki and Uchali and you can drive up the mountain to Sakesar. Though it is a restricted area. Hope it helps.

    I have visited the Skesar peak a few times but the last one was back 8 years or so, but I do plan to go there sometime near future soon Inshallah. And I have heard of the archaeological sites there but haven't seen them yet.
