Yaks, grazing peacefully, away from everything...

Yaks are common in the high pastures. Around Shandur pass people rear them, and plenty of them can be seen along the road. They carry loads, give a very tasty milk and their meat and skins are used as well.

One of the 39 bridges over the Gilgit & Ghizar river

We were quite impressed by the sight of those magnificent bridges built over the rivers in the entire valley: they are strong, durable and beautiful! Farid, our science teacher made a point of counting each one we encountered: 39... only on our road!

Stopover at Shandur shop and lake.

Reaching icy Shandur pass always forces us to stop at the shop selling the worst sweets ever, but amazingly enough tasting so good there!

Getting ready at the Kosht bridge for a three-days trip

Not always easy to get luggage fixed and place for 15 to travel "comfortably"! But no worries for me at least! The front seat is only for me...

The Mystic Chitrali Sitar

Plato [c.427-347 BC] considered music to be an integral part of human life. The relevance and importance of the great Greek philosopher has not diminished but has increased in our age.
