We went to the market after reaching back to Skardu and bought dry Fruits, Balti Cap stuff like that.. And during the shopping we met a moutaineer and a Guide who told us about his services.
He said he can take us to Bear sighting tour into deep deosai wilderness, he can take us to concordia/BaseCap of mighty K2 ..
Price of each tour ranged from 45k+ to 200K... depending upon what type of luxury you want to carry along.
I forgot the name of the guy he told he is a famous person among mountaineers and has a famous fan page on Facebook as well..
any body rememebre his name or a FB ID ? @kashi.khan @salar.gilani @pirates @rocketscience @mqsdrana ??
After buying stuff we planned to reach skardu airport to have a look of its landing strip but when we reached there the security reason did not let us stop and have a look.
Now we still had Shangrilla and its lakes in our pocket but shiggar valley thing wasted our time, but weekend was about to reach its End and we knew it would atleast take 2(or may be 3 days) to go back as we were damn really really far from home
It was evening time and we planned to go to Jaglot and take a rest so next day we can Enter KPK atleast so that on third day we cn reach back Lahore..
so we started our Journing without a knowledge of how far KKH was there from actually and it was already an evening...
eh he he he he he he so you can imagine what happened next ...
The road was one single strip of asphalt which was largly missing at Curves and ridges and there was constant flow of trucks and heavy traffic as this is the only road which connnects the skardu city to KKH
The River flows just beside it and creates a hau nting HOWL constantly which can freak out any body who sees a storming river for the first time.
At many spots the mountain shadows the road completly like a roof and seeps water from it .. so it feels like raining when you stand beneath it..
We took a tea brake after a 3 hour riding and by that time the little evening light which was left was about to diminsh..
By the time we finished our tea.. it was pitch black..
And then a local driver there told us that KKH is atleast 6 hours away.. and we were looking at each others faces...
