Dear Members & Friends of Islamabad Jeep Club ( IJC )
Team IJC arranged a Snow Cross Peace Rally 2012 at Kalam
We started our journey on Friday 3 rd Feb 2012 at 3 pm from Toll Plaza.
At first 11 different 4x4's managed to arrive at Mingora. Stayed there for a night & on Sat 4 th Feb at 8 am started our journey towards Kalam.
Had a cup of tea with Colonel Nadeem at Madyan.At Madyan Mitsuman , Aamir Malik & Dr Nadeem Naeem along with Mr Imran joined.So total number of rides went upto 13. Later Mitsuman's friends came from Lahore on Hilux Tiger. The final number of rides went upto 14.
As we started our journey towards Kalam there was little snow covering the mountains. As we proceeded further toward Kalam it started Snowing & it covered the whole area.
When we reached Kalam it was fully covered with snow. After dumping our luggage into our hotel we had lunch then went outside to have our Peace Rally along with locals at a ground close to Kalam
Enjoyed driving our 4x4's on snow. After sunset we came back & enjoyed watching videos of the event.
On 5 th morning we presented Shield to Khanzada Sb ( Ex Nazim of that area & who helped Team IJC in all the flood relief activities in that area )
