Continuing on our last trek, we started this week’s from the PTDC Motel Skardu. We gathered at a mutually agreed point from where we reached PTDC Motel, and crossing the adjoining mound we landed at the under construction Chumik Bridge. The bridge will connect Skardu city with the newly established district of Shigar. As the bridge was under construction, we were unable to cross the mighty Indus that laid in our way to the part of Sarfaranga that we were to explore. We embarked a boat that the contractor, building the bridge, had brought to transport construction material. The spectacle and our going aboard the boat reminded me of Sophie Smiles whose iconic image had inundated Pakistani papers when she posted her journey in Gilgit-Baltistan on her blog, β€˜with a haram pose she gave aboard a boat at Ataabad Lake in Hunza’ (thought imitating but couldn’t imitate her in a two minute boat ride). We crossed the river Indus on the boat. This time we had planned to explore the part of Sarfaranga that laid to the west of the part that we went to last time and walked, and walked until we reached the confluence of mighty Indus and Shigar River. We circumnavigated the part from Chumik Bridge to the Shigar-Indus confluence to Russian olive plantation site where we barbequed and made tea and sang and did everything that came in the mind (LOL) to Chumik Bridge, the starting point of our mini-adventure. At a point, it scared shit out of me when I tried to go near a Zou (a local breed that resembles Yak) for taking a picture and in the process angered him – started moving towards me and in the blink of an eye, I had outpaced co-trekkers who were way ahead me. The trek was rewarding in experience and the place overwhelming in vastness. One couldn’t resist the sheer beauty but at the same time its vastness was imposing, recurring and reminding place that individual held in the infinite expanse. We cooked, ate and drank, in that order. We started the trek at 10 in the morning and arrived back at 4 in the evening. #Highlanders #Nature #Karakuram #Himalaya #Desert #Sarafaranga #Instapic #River #RiverIndus #BeautifulBaltistan #Beauty #Mountains #WanderLust #Travel

This past weekend, we planned to explore the vast expanse of Sarfa Ranga, one of the highest deserts of the world, on foot. For the uninitiated, the name had created quite a buzz in the media due to a jeep rally held at the same place last year. Participants, who participated in the rally, included drivers from abroad, Pakistan and local areas of GB. For nature lovers, the desert has a unique identity that your eyes here meet the beautiful snow capped mountains of Karakuram and Himalayas, the sand dunes that add a unique experience to the sight, and the River Indus that flows along the desert. The icing on the cake, the unmatched serenity and tranquility that surrounds it all. We cooked, ate and walked a linear distance of around 30 kms. #BeautifulBaltistan #SarfaRanga #WanderLust #Highlanders

A PEEK INTO THE PAST: From an assignment in Kharfaq, Khaplu Gilgit-Baltistan, went out of the way to have this captured - for the beauty appealed too much to the sights. A maze of β€˜covered lanes' indicative of your being at a place oblivious of the outer world. Here you are: in a traditional Balti neighbourhood. #BeautifulBaltistan #GilgitBaltistan
