DESCRIPTION

Embark on a transformative journey in Pakistan's vibrant capital, Islamabad, nestled amidst the Margalla hills. The city's lively ambiance blends seamlessly with its mountainous surroundings, offering a unique experience. Kickstart the adventure by exploring Islamabad on motorcycles, acclimating to local riding, and immersing in culture.

Our path leads to Murree, a charming hill station once favored by the British. The initial short ride helps ease into navigating "the other side" of the road, ensuring comfort on your motorcycle. A straight ride to Naran opens doors to the world's grandest mountain ranges. The exhilarating climb through Babusar Pass at 13,700 ft promises breathtaking vistas and surprises at every curve.

Venturing through historical Hunza villages and conquering the Khunjerab Pass at 15,400 ft, we reach the China-Pakistan Border. The legendary Karakoram Highway, though impeccably paved, challenges even seasoned riders, offering a taste of the extraordinary.

Immerse in local flavors, culture, and renowned hospitality as you journey through the heart of Pakistan. Traverse Shandur, the world's highest polo field, and Kalash, home to the indigenous Kalashi tribe with a unique lineage linked to Alexander the Great.

Returning to Islamabad, the mountains' embrace transforms your perception of Pakistan. Depart with a newfound perspective, yearning for future encounters with this captivating land.
