  5. Welcome mate, what do you ride and what are the roads like? And how are bikers perceived by car drivers there?
  6. Howdy & Welcome to NR!
  7. Thanks every one for the warm welcome.
    Yes Pakistan is a dream place for biking and hiking .. it got all a biker can dream of twisting road , lush green plains , KKH highway , and three of the worlds highest mountain ranges The Himalayas,hindukusch ,karakoram.

    Bro we ride all kinds of bikes but here in Pakistan we prefer small air-cooled bikes like GS150,XR250,XL250,GS125,CG125 for touring due to low maintenance properties of these bikes ..last week i did a tour from Lahore to batakundi.post some picture :p Bike is GS150

  10. What fantastic photos (and mountain roads!), thanks for posting them.

    I've read about the Karakoram and KKH here and there, it looks awesome. Changing the fuel/air mix for altitude is an exotic idea here in Australia - the highest point is only 2,228 metres above sea level. Your last photo of the snow clearing is incredible, given the scale of the earthmoving equipment there.
  11. not snow mate that was a Glacier that had moved over the road
  12. Ta Uncle Greg, I just re-read the caption for it now. Immense power at work moving that mass across there.

  15. Thank you for taking the time to post your tour destinations - I've just taken myself on a little Google Images tour of each of those places. The scenery is just on such a grand scale. I'm sure you'll have more stories and images to post after your August tour.

  18. You should post up a few of these in the roads and touring section.
    I love the pics
  19. You've brought back some very good memories for me. A long time ago I travelled through Pakistan, from Quetta to NWFP, to Chitral, Khunjerab, Kaghan and Baltistan. I left a little bit of my heart in all these places and more.
    Tell me, is the Babusar pass still as frightening? I remember also hiking to Saif ul Maluk lake but it was summer when I was there - not frozen.
    Pakistan people were very kind to me.
    I would love to hear more about your travels.
  20. We welcome any kind of tourist to Pakistan.But most of the people in the world think Pakistan is terrorist country.People of Pakistan are very cooperative.

    yes Babusar is still the same but we like it that way its challenging.will post more pics soon
