Assalam o alikum all
alhdulillah i along with 3 freinds have completed the tour to khunjerab pass and deosai plains.
Special thx to Mr. Rizwan_mir and other members of this forum for valuable suggestions and expereince feedback.
we started our tour on satuarday after eid and completed on next satuarday.
day 1. islamabad to naran
we had a plan to reach chillas, we left at 3 o clock but due to traffic and some ither issue we could reach naran.
day 2. naran to kareemabad
we were already late as per plan and again we faced petrol shortage which tooks too much time at gilgit. so we had to travel at night. we reach karimabad at about 12 at night.
day 3. karimabad to khunjerab to gulmit
as per plan we had to be at gilgit but we were tired as we didnt have proper sleep the night before. all hotels were booked
day 4. gulmit to astore
as per plan we had to reach sheosar lake or chillam choki on day 4 but due to fuel shortage we had to stay at astore.
day 5 astore to sakardu via deosai plains
this was the toughest and most tiring day. we started late because we had to get a slip from assist. commissioner office for fuel. we enjoyed deosai plains and spent too much time and then we had to travel last 35 km in dark.
day 6. manthoka waterfall and shighar
we started late as we had to get our bikes checked and oil change. we visited both these points and came back to same hotel.
day 7. sakardu to jaglot
as per plan we had to reach chillas but we spent more time at shangrilla and upper kachura lake. also road is dangerous at some points so we drove carefully and reached jaglot.
day 8. jaglot to islamabad
return journey is always boring so we decided to do it in one day. we started early in the morning and reached home at about 11.30 pm dead tired.
my suggestions to those who are planning a tour on bike
1. always get some practice to change tube as removing tyre is not as easy as it seems. we faced problem on first day.
2. take exra fuel with you
3. do not plan on rushy days like eid or any nationak holiday
4. after mid july moonsoon starts and rain can block roads. so consider weather situation always.
5.keep a cushion on your bike seat
