It was my first ever trip to Northern areas which I started with two known individuals only that were my sister and a friend, but here I came back with a small happy family of 14. I didn’t have a single clue before starting this journey that it would’ve been so much difficult to say goodbye to the people I met just few days before. I can’t even describe what I’m feeling while going through all the moments we captured there. Whether it’s a playlist we followed in bus or old W-11 songs we heard in jeep while trekking, whether it’s a fight for window seat or making a sleeping bed there amidst of all chaos, making Safi Bhaiyya and Rizwan Uncle annoyed with our frequent questions and songs demand or taking unnecessarily long stay at each stop, From gossiping for like anything to being there for someone who was having mood swings/missing their families back, from teaming up with roommates to those silly little fights for undefined subject, whether it’s Barbeque (with kachi botiyaaan) or bonfire with another tour groups (me being a chalta phirta MTV🙈), Trekking k douran thak kar khud ko kousna ho ya phir Fairy Meadows pe puhanch kar khud ko is faislay k liye shabashi dena, Hiking ka bhi maza lena ho aur phir Glacier pe puhanch k antaakshari, whether it’s boating in Attabad lake or drifting in Borith Lake, Naram naram sa MANTU ho ya phir Garam garam sa CHAPSHURU, From telling fictional horror stories at Tattu village to witnessed paranormal activities in actual at Fairy Meadows, Karimabad Bazaar ki chehal pehal ho ya phir Borith Lake pe Pur-israar khamoshi, Rakaposhi ka deo-heikal wajood ho ya Nanga Parbat se milta nain-sukh, Baltit Fort k history guide ka andaaz ho ya Hooper Valley pe milnay walay desi Harry Potter ki dil ko choo lenay wali awaaz, Raat tak jaag kr taray ginna ho ya phir deep talks with a person having similar vibes, ‘Taerhay merhay Rastay’ hon yaa ‘Yeh Haseen Vadiyaan’… ❤
And the list goes on…
In short I’ve been missing this all already and holded on these moments too and no idea how long it’ll take me to get out of this charismatic journey. :’)
SAfi AkhunzAda, I’m not going to call him tour guide as I actually found a caring and concered brother in him who didn’t only treat us as his own family but went out of the way throughout the journey just to ensure our comfort, safety and happiness.
Thanks Bilal for making me believe that there is still organization/company like Eventica exists who actually treat their clients as family. I really appreciate your work and dedication to make this trip happen and looking forward for the next one soon. 🙈😍
Eventica Travels, Highly recommended. 👍🏻
