Well I think I have to narrate my end of the story a lil' bit...
When I heard of the IJC plan, I told my father of this opportunity to finally visit Deosai, which we had been planning for a long long time but it never seemed to materialize. Though I didn't really expect it but my father caught on and kept asking me about it and pretty soon we had added my brother in law and my son into the equation and seemed all geared up to go with our trusted helper Siddique and my Father's Toyota Surf. The original plan was to hang out with IJC but as it turned out, we were running just a lil bit ahead of them until Deosai where we did not camp for the night and headed back to PTDC Rama and then back for Islamabad the next day.
Alhamdolillah, it turned out to be a dream trip for me as I was to spend time with all the boys (big and small) that I am really fond of (though I was missing my brother & co) and all of us got back safe and sound.... Having visited most of the major locations in Northern Pakistan, I can safely say that Deosai is simply on a different plane altogether and words or pics or vids cannot really capture its atmosphere and feel. Though I beleieve I did try my best!
Hope you like the teasers, more to come as we roll along!Or rather in honor of the Deosai Marmot, we'll probably hop along on this thread between videos and pics and stories and basheering
