Road to Astore is narrow but metaled, we continued our journey alone as we hardly come across a few vehicles.
It was getting dark when we reached near Astore and the problem was that neither our navigation was giving us details nor we were able to find somebody to guide us as there were some offtakes from main road without any signboards.
Finally we reached Astore at 8 pm, Astore to agaya par PTDC Rama kahan he?
Got some fuel and asked the petrol filling boy how far is PTDC Rama from here and you know the default answer, "bus ye thora sa opar ja kar aa jaye ga", at this moment everyone was dead tired and the only thing we wished for was a bed.
PTDC Rama is only 8 km from Astore city but this 8 km at night when there is no body to guide is like 80 kms, got fed up and the jump rod clamp we got fixed in Naran got opened once again.
Finally we reached PTDC Rama at 9:30 pm.
What a wonderful destination, nice facilities and friendly staff and most importantly we informed them when we left Chilas that we are coming and we will have dinner.
Thank God that we got hot water and we got fresh up, now we were bit relaxed to have dinner.
Night was quite cold.
While waiting for the dinner, we kept on discussing about the milestones we covered in a day and our next day plans.
