In February 2016, we decided to scale heights of a popular northern area trekking site “Siri Paya” in Shogran.
Taking advantage of a long weekend, we left Karachi for Islamabad via Greenline Train. We spent a night in Islamabad and left for Galiat early morning next day. During our Galiat visit, we went to Patriata chairlift, Ayubia, Nathiagali and did some shopping in Murree.
At night we stayed at a resort near Murree and left for Shogran before Dawn next morning. By noon we reached Shogran and then started our trekking on the snow covered beautiful treks to Siri Paya.
With lots of fun and team work, we managed to reach the top by 3:00pm. Stayed there for a while with chai, pakoras and boiled eggs for lunch and started descending again to reach the base by sunset.
After having delicious and famous Chapal Kababs on the way for dinner, we reached Abbotabad and stayed overnight in a luxury hotel.
Next morning we left for Islamabad to experience the majestic Shah Faisal Mosque and finally took the train back to Karachi.
