Mad men appreciate your compliment
This was almost too easy / doable, I mean as a day trip. For you even more so if you want to stay the night in Abottabad. No need for any special prep, let alone snow chains. Even though the TLC meter showed outside temp hovering between 0-3, but in bright crisp sun with almost no wind it was very comfy. The Jalkhad speed run apart, there was absolutely no speedy gonzales driving, we hardly hit even 120 on motorway, just made sure no stops.
Who knows.....................maybe next plan, visit Saiful-Maluk when its fully frozen (and take along ice-skates) (H)
