EXPLORING SKARDU, GILGIT BALTISTAN.

Image
I decided to arrive Skardu by air and here is the link to that scenic flight CLICK HERE   Though it is easily accessible by road also. But to avoid long hours by road I opt for the PIA air safari scenic flight.   In Fact I have already travelled Karakoram highways during my earlier tour to Hunza.  You can also read my road journey on KKH here. My Epic Road Journey on KKH.  Skardu is located in the extreme north of Pakistan connecting the western Himalaya range of mountains. It's famous as the land of mountains, lakes and waterfalls. It's like a paradise for mountaineers. Multiple options for mountaineers and hiking opportunities.  k2, the second highest peak in the world is located here. Apart from that Masherbrum, Nanga parbat located in same region.  During my stay, I visited some of the most beautiful lakes, valleys, waterfalls of Skardu. Details are given below. But I was pretty much happier with a cherry on top and that was none other than visiting Deosai national park. C

FIVE REASONS TO VISIT KASHMIR .TOUR DE AZAD KASHMIR. PAKISTAN.

It's always fun in having a journey for pleasure in which different places are being visited, whether it's by air or through a long road journey.  For me it's not only fun but it's a kind of learning process which takes me out of my comfort zone and I explore new places and people. Usually it takes me hours to make for myself a perfect itinerary. Recently I have got an opportunity to travel to Azad Kashmir Bagh District, Pakistan. If you check the map of Azad Kashmir, you will find that it's accessible from different routes via Islamabad/Murree Expressway Kohala, Mangla, Kahuta, Abbottabad & Balakot, etc. For more details watch my video on my  You Tube Channel here.  We chose via first route and that was Islamabad/Murree Expressway.  Watch here 👇 OR CLICK HERE 👇   Got our layover at TDCP hilltop resort. Click for the video here HERE ARE FIVE MAIN REASONS TO VISIT KASHMIR. (1): The lush green meadows filled with wild flowers surrounded by mountains. There are m

GANGA CHOTI MOUNTAIN BAGH, AZAD KASHMIR.

The lush green meadows. It's been called as "Ganga Choti" because people here believe that before partition Hindus used to live here and they named it. It's almost at 2 hours drive from Dhirkot town. The road condition is quite perfect. A beautiful scenic road via sudhan gali leads you to Ganga Peak. Watch a video on my You Tube Channel here. Access to Ganga Choti : Ganga choti or "Ganga Peak" is easily accessible via two routes. One is Dhirkot that is easily accessible via Murree expressway at kohala. From Murree lower topa it will take one to one and half hour drive to dhirkot. After a night stopover at dhirkot, it took us 2 hours to drive towards this beautiful location next morning and further an hour or two hours of trekking on the mountain (If you really want to do trekking) or else you can have a good view just right after climbing 10 minutes from the parking area. You will get a nice view of the valley in front of you. The second one is directly from

THE SECRET. BOOK BY RHONDA BYRNE.

Image
Usually I don't review books but some how recently I have been through a book "THE SECRET" by RHONDA BYRNE.  It's basically revolves around the philosophy of "Law of attraction".  We all knows that Law of attraction suggests that like attracts like means if you will think positive then chances are more likely to attract positivity in your life and same vice versa. Now the real question comes amid that " Is this law of attraction" concept is true? Well the answer is "there is no scientific evidence of it.  But still we all believe in our spheres of lives that there is an energy around us, POSITIVE & NEGATIVE.  Sometimes we start thinking negatively and it impacts our mind and body. On other side many times we start thinking positive so it has too impacts on our body and mind.   I personally won't like go deep in such philosophies because for me what matters is to get the real and straightforward concept and all I learn from it is that &

No doubt Shimla hill is still one of the oldest hill range and tourist spot, located in Abbottabad. Today i am here almost after 13 years of gap and i find it has improved a lot with a proper paved tracks for visitors and other decorated stuff like wooden benches, shades and terraces. A small trek takes you to the point where you can get the panoramic view of Abbottabad city and this place has my heart and many childhood memories because it used to be one of the most visited places that i have been to dozens of times with family. I have grown up here and after so many years it has remind me about those old good days. I can share here a link and it's clearly visible the difference between how it was before and now. So let's compare them. Click this link here  Watch here a recent video 👇 Now let's have a look at present day pictures of Shimla Hill Abbottabad in year 2022👇

Beating the summer heat at thandiani top!!! ??? Well wait wait ! ✋  Did you read that but it's not 100% true.  Well who knows Thandiani better then me. I have lived my childhood there. I used to visit this hill top every time we would like to beat the heat down town. Yes it was cold a decade and twice ago but somehow the situation has changed now due to global warming. You will definitely get some 2 to 3 degree temperature drop here now but don't expect more then this until and unless it's raining and cloudy. In day time it's almost around 30 to 32 degree in summers here on top.  I travelled here after long time. It's been almost 10 years recently I have visited here and let me share my experience. Though this place has still same greenery and the tall trees on way drive towards to top that's a treat to eyes but once you come out to hike in day time under sun then it's bit difficult to handle. Aim for the sky, but move slowly, enjoying every step along the w
