A Helicopter Joy ride to Naran Valley

A broken river between Gilgit and Danyore- A town across Indus river near Gilgit. The bridge on KKH is broken for the last 7-8 months. I don't know for how long it will remain as such. It is a huge inconvenience to the travelers as they have to cross the river from another bridge after traveling a long distance cross country.


An aerial view of Karakoram Highway. A treat to watch from above.


Deep-Green River Indus and a cool suspension bridge - What else can you wish to give a treat to your eyes??? 


A great view of the snow-coated Babusar Pass - A mountainous pass connecting Kaghan or Naran Valley to Indus Valley. The height of Babusar pass is 13,691 feet above mean sea level.


A snow-quilted view of Kaghan Valley near Lulusar Lake. The lake can not be seen at this time of the year as it is completely frozen.

Hi Faraz!
Thanks a lot for your nice comments. In fact I am writing these lines while sitting in Naran at this time. Its 12 Sep 09 at 00:46 am. The weather here is lovely at this time, although a bit cold. It was too cold some days ago when it rained but now it is quite warm (in terms of Naran). Hopefully it would be pleasant on 3 Oct as well. If you come here, do leave me a message or send me your number at faisalcheema44@gmail.com or here in my blog, if I will be around, I would love to meet you too. What do you do?
