Trip summary of Snow cross to Kalam 17-19 march 2017

6 rides, 16 people.

Left at 6pm on 17th. Dinner break at Khorak Mahal after Batkhela!

Road between Bahrain and Kalam (last 34km) still completely rough n broken down!

Reached Green Hotel at 1:30am. Rooms pre-booked, heater already on, so just moved into rooms, some of us had another hot cuppa tea and off to bed after 3am! :)

Breakfast at 9, morning showed plenty snow on mountain tops, not much on ground, but our playground had enough to start off a good day!

Everyone slided around and drifted and n what not in the snow! Than it was time to try some deep snow in pine forest shadowed area, needless to say plenty stuck up and recoveries, as no one went thru the effort of putting snow chains on! The tow straps had thorough workout :)

On to Ushu Valley towards Maodand, but that was not to be! :(

Land slide and road compelely closed even before halfway meant we had to turn back! A small honey shop hut right in front of land slide meant we couldn't even try to pass!

So back to pine forest, Gulzada khan suggested a short cut to Anakar village! Lots n lots of snow, so we only made approx 200 meters in over n hour and gave up. Because it was all snow covered, couldn't tell if there were any water puddles underneath or big stones to damage the rig!

So took normal route to Anakar village. Made it to the village but side roads to the river all blocked due to snow! Nomi's rig got a puncture, tight awkward sloping area, so changing tyre was an event!

Past 5 pm so back to hotel, hot tea, with garam chappal kebabs as snack energised all. Than we started playing with snow within hotel compound! There was a snow heap almost 7-8 feet blocking the way on one side of hotel porch! This was the snow which had fallen off from the sloping roof! Azhar tried to make few inroads onto it by hitting it with his Jimny bull bar. Than Hayzin made some inroads with his new ARB style steel bumper, Finally we used the steel rear bumper and tray back of NPP to thum it all out of the way! Aadil managed to climb a 5 foot snow collection on his Daihatsu Fortrak! Great fun, the hotel owner n son throughly enjoyed and were telling us to now move this part of snow!

Back to rooms for hot showers!, freshen up, dinner, green tea and than gupshup for some time!

Next morning was packup, wrapup, breakfast and return journey time. Left at 10am. Few pic stops on the way. Lunch at takhbai of Chappal kebabs, and back to homes!

ISB to kalam one way 340km, total trip 740km. Driving time each way approx 7:30 with meal break.

Thnx to all the friends who joined for this great fun short wekend, missed those who couldn't. Eternally thankful to Almighty for all the blessings. Till next time............InshaAllah!
