Aslamoalikum everyone .Its me Amina Ahsan Butt your lazy but the Good little blogger . I hope everyone is doing fine . I am back with an other episode of my blog so yeah!!!!! Are you ready for an adventure because today i will be telling you about how does staying on road because of landsliding feels like 😛
so i was born in 2002 as far as i can remember i have been visiting the northern areas since 2007 . Each year I along with my family go for the exploration of the beautiful lands of the north of Pakistan . So for the year of 2019 we decided to go the beautiful Baltistan . Before then this i had visited baltisan back in 2016 as well . But the land of baltisan is far too wide so it was hard to cover all areas back then . But the land of baltistan is far too beautiful so we decide to go for it again and to explore the rest of the parts
DAY 7:- SAKARDU-ASTAK :-
After the long touring days it was the time to go back to home . We woke up early in the morning after packing the bags we had a healthy breakfast our from our hotel with this view
after checking out we were at the broken sakardu road . I hope its construction gets done as soon as possible so that the local people and the tourists gets at ease 🙂 . on our way we took cherries from a cherry yard because if you don’t take the cherries from there you have done nothinggg!we stored them in our coolbox so that they don’t get rote . after a drive of hours and ride of sight on the beautiful scenes we reached a place called ASTAK where all the people who were travelling got struck due to landsliding which took in place due to heavy rain happening those days
astak is a small village that comes on the way to sakardu it has a few trekking sites as well . So when we got to know about the blocking of road we all got a little upset because it wasn’t what we were expecting in our tour . the day turned into night the darkness appeared but there was no way out . more like 600-800 were there waiting for the Mr rock to get off the road but Mr rock decided not to . Btw shout out to the local people and shops and resurant who comforted the people gave place to stay and prepaired enough food that everyone could have .
almost at 1 am we all were totally tired so we slept in our car as every place was filled . look at my handsome abba ❤
that’s how all of us managed to sleep and but my amma was still worried so she didn’t slept the whole night ( love mama ❤ ) . After the hectic sleep I woke up with a lot of pains 😛 because it was 3 of us sistas sleeping in the back seats (hehehe) . when were a tooonnnnnn of people waiting for getting a little fresh up . As I and my family have been traveling from many years so we somehow compromise on stuff so the bathrooms and the nightsleep while many other travelers were getting freaked out (hehheh ) .
DAY 8 :- ASTAK – RAIKOT :-
even tho it was a no shower day on a hot sunny day I stayed calm and rather then being a cry baby I went and explored the area and met many nice people who totally made this road block time funnn ❤ thnk you to huda Rashida appi , sidra ,Faiza appi , and all of them .
after these happy moments the workers of FWO removed the rock and everyone got super exited and started the drive . altho it was a slow drive due to a large amount traffic on the road . it took hours and hours to get off the road and reach KKH specially due to another road block at Sassi Haramosh . We reached kkh at 3 am and due to the late hour no place was opened but somehow near raikot bridge we saw a hotel and had a little sleep for the day
DAY 9 :- RAIKOT – ISLMABAD :-
As its quite obvious from the previous days that how hectic they were we had another travelling day . it was just a drive back till besham and the scenary in the way near besham we decided to switch the route , rather then going from muzafabad and havelian we choose the road that leads to mangora ❤ the roads were super clean along with the cool and windy weather . It wasn’t short route but still the greenery got my hear t nearly 9 amwe reached mangora and had our dinner and then took our way till the newly built sawat Motorway . I gotta saw wow because that road was pretty adventurous but a side from that it made travelling for sawat more easy so if you are travelling for sawat do use this route ❤ . At nearly 2am we reached our guesthouse in ISLAMBAD. this is a shout out to peace guesthouse in Islamabad totally recommended for those who wants to stay in Islamabad ❤ .
DAY 9 ISLAMABAD TO LAHORE :-
after meeting our relitives in Islamabad we had a happy drive back to lahore and that’s how the tour ended ❤ thank you for reading all the episodes
