meray pass motorolla k walkie talkie hain, and they work really good... mountains men ap ka concern theek hai k unki comunication reduce ho jaye gee but still they can be handy..
but ajkal walkie talkie lay ker travel kerny k liye u need a AMCP (Amature Radio Club of Pakistan) ki member ship or licsense to cary such device werna terrorist consider kiye jo ***..
bluetooth/wifi are lousy in open areas and hardly cover a couple of hundred yards ..
SCOM/Zong is best but that also fades out after 165km track on noori..
Great. Thanks for the above update.
In my personal experience, I have noticed SCOM working in almost all of Neelum valley, whereas all our local mobile operators go dudd after crossing Muzaffarabad.
Yes, neelum vallay he nahi poray GB men bhi kafi famous hai.. it works.. locals k pass tu hai he woh, but peaks per usky signals bhi gum ho jatay hain.
We descended with fresh morning to jhalkad, the trek was pretty easy in comparison to what we faced from sharda, and was quite beautiful and mesmerizing, it took hardly 2 hours to move from noori top to jhalkad base for the rocket riders but for snail riders like me it took a little more.. her paanch minute bad tu sight seeing yad ajati thee
I saw blue flower carpets, red flower carpets...
the whole place was in full swing, also enjoyed the rain on the way, but as the lesson was learnt the hard way this time I was riding in full kit now so "in real" enjoyed it instead of getting a shiver attack again
when we reached Jhalkad, XL125 was already on the jeep with the broken back bone so nadeem sahab along his trail went to naran to get it welded again..
Young lads who were first time to North also decided to go naran and "chill out" a little...
while we old drum rolls decided to relax and release all the "thakawat" and camp for night stay...
Excellent Efforts. wonderful !!
BTW i will be keen to know as you mentioned some "some life threatening events".Share them plz.
@tintin1Have you read the complete thread so far? The answer of your question is clearly reside their.
Instead of Deploying our own camps, we found out that the fares of the camps already deplyed by the hotel were quite cheap so we decided to rent to Big camps and spent a warm night there.
Food was basic, but it was not bad at all.
We started to buckle up early in the morning so that we can catch up our plan ...
I am glad you liked it, the posts referred as Day#2 you can check them out.
@jigzkorner, his cousin and Mr Hassan left for Lahore as they only had limited vacations, While we camped at Jhalkad.
The Next Day (4) #
Nadeem was back from naran with boys who chilled at naran and he got his XL125 ready to take on KKH.
We buckled up and started to fly towards babusar in packs.
First team to leave was kashi and boys... and off course I being the laziest was the last to dispatch
We re-assemble at Chillas, boys again switched to harder gear ratios and changed the sprockets for high speed traveling.
And then we 13 bikes charged the KKH.
We met like a dozen of groups of riders along KKH including Adnan, sultan and Zenith we were unable to stop by...
lads also banged into @bukkhar11 and his team on paiggios and untied trail who were heading to Khunjerab as well..
Adnan husaains group.
Guess the Mountain

I cant forget the moment when @vickytulla , @kashi.khan were in the middle of way at around 1 am and were shivering like hell.We were getting heat from running engines and exhausts. But the next morning was so pleasant that we forgot all the things and started to enjoy everything.
And when i go for a trip.... :-!
Asalam o Alekum BrothersYour Tour is full of adventures. Shukar ALHAMDULILLAH you all guys completed the journey safely. @vicktulla Bro i want to know that the bike which was crashed is that one is totally modified by the owner? and one more thing by reading your half of journey one can tell that having a bike isn't mean that we are good riders until we know the mechanics of the bike.Good learning for the first Timers bcz of seniors like you. can you grade the all the bike by there performance? Thanks
Its kind of a first parao for many riders...
well all bikes crashed at least one time... bikes usually crash due to human error.
Id you are asking about break down, then it was XL125 who's frame was broken on noori top due to extreme off-road conditions and 30 years old bike..
The altered / engine upgraded bikes had no issue at all.. also the 150cc GS also kept on pushing, only 125cc class bikes showed signs of getting heavily exhausted.
125cc (any bike) is a bad choice for extreme off roading and if that is coupled with a novice rider is a big mistake.
@kashi.khan at lulusar Lake
this was one hell of a trip for you guyz... loved every detail and video...
We roamed around Karimabad visited both forts did local shopping went to Cafe De' Hunza
1 - Altit & baltit Fort2 - Cafes (Huna and few others)3 - Eagles Nest Mountain Ridge (it is not necesory to stay at Eagles nest hotel in order to visit the ridge)4 - Early Morning or evening view of Golden Peak5 - Dawn/Dusk View of Rakaposhi6 - Lady Finger Peak7 - The Old cultural rich village is worth a visit and if you are with family you will be welcomed with both arms open.8 - Eat Musli, Walnut cake, walnut is dirt cheap and super tasty 9 - You wont see a "Kala kaolu" as you see it there, the original Hunza kala kaolu Apple is is more then just appetizing.10 - This List can increase.. oh yeshh..
