Road side dhabbas always prove marvelous in travelling we took breakfast and then started our journey towards Muzafarabad, Capital city of Azad Kashmir through a local bus at 7Am in morning and reached the city at 10Am, the road side sight seeing is excellent during the journey from Rawalpindi to Muzarfarbad , the capital city has a lot to offer to its visitors the view of the city from centuries of year old Red Fort , the city is in between Neelum river and Jhelum river and their intersection point “Do Mail” present beautiful view, the historic temple in the city adds beauty, the local foods and the local culture is at its peak, the day was not over yet as we have decided to reach Kel by evening and we left the city at 1Pm, the journey is full of unpatched roads a journey of 155Kms ended by 8pm due to high altitude and offroad conditions, in mere 19Hrs we were on 6879ft from 717ft ,The Kel is located near Line of Control, There are frequent landslides during Summers, and Snow slides on this road during winters. In winters all the routes are blocked and it is very difficult to reach there. All these factors combined made it one of the most difficult places to reach, the temperature there ranges btwn 13C in day and goes to as low as 4C in month of Sept. We spend the night in Kel
