After 50 min drive, there is a Police checkpost and also has tourist information desk and if see, it is mentioned GUTUMSAR VALLEY whose distance from Astore Bazar is 18km Road condition is un-mettaled and travel time is 55min and there is Beautiful ALLAH WALI LAKE WOW ! i want to go here....ALLAH WALI LAKE so we have stopped for a Tea Break on Umer's wish It is quiet hot here Salam ! Sir please enter your name and details Is this road going to some village? This road is going to ALLAH WALI LAKE Oh Allah wali lake? we want to go there Yes this is the road that goes there Lets visit there first (before entering Astore city) We started our journey from Astore checkpost at 11AM and 10min has been passed and now we are moving towards Allah Wali Lake some stones are falling due to land sliding Its almost half hour passed and thank God road condition is good so far if you ask me, whether this is a Bus worth road or not? Yes, it can come if road is fully constructed but Hiace vans can come easily but best vehicle is 4 wheel drive either you should come on Jeep, Land cruiser or Honda BRV These are all villages and people are busy in their routine work Now 1 hr has been passed towards Allah Wali Lake We left from Astore checkpost at 11am it is 12pm now and we have covered almost 10km which means 10km only in one hour drive in which almost 70% road was concrete portion this means that next 10km on this bad road will take atleast 1.5 hr

Now onward road was quiet bad and rough so we drove very slowly and kept moving There were too many stones on the path that our bikes were getting stucked in them Wow what a beautiful lake is this The road is so rough even difficult for jeep Do able either by walk or bike From there i have drove with so much luggage on bike Bike was stucked badly but these kids helped and pushed it The stones were really bad But they say: you reach to a beautiful place only after a tough ride Let the bike get cooled as it has served a lot My bags were also shaking badly, even torn from here When bike getting cool we also refreshed ourselves from water stream Almost 50min has been passed the road is too difficult we have to apply breaks again n again and there are too many stones Oh My God The bike gets stucked again n again If you have not installed big size tyres your bike can topple easily "Difficult routes, always leads to beautiful destination" and hopefully it will be beautiful And after 2 hours of this tough drive, we reached at a road end There is a bridge. Lets stop here and wait for Umer This road is closed here is a door There is Umer The road is finish after this bridge Lets check on the map There is a door which is close This road is also closed I think we can go further after parking our bikes here How should we go by leaving our luggage here There is some guy, lets ask him Salam ! we want to go ALLAH WALI LAKE Can't we take our bike there? How much time it will take 2 ~3 min walk? The lake is just in front?? can we park there? Lets go there Thanku So much So we started at 11am and reached here at 1 pm and now we will go upward after parking our bikes here Its almost 5 ~ 7 min walking distance as per locals Then we will have the views of ALLAH WALI LAKE Wow..what an amazing path That bif stone is the view point The best time to visit is June and July When the plain is lush green and all streams are fully filled with blue water Umer could not wait and started drinking coffee from sauce pan what an enjoyment man ! Umer These are our life time moments So we had a great time of having coffee at this rock and enjoyed watching these blue sky and white clouds and why this is called ALLAH WALI LAKE? So this is ALLAH WALI LAKE Its name is because of the water streams that comes down from mountains to this plain It makes some cuts and turns while going down and while the water going in zig zag way then they make a shape of arabic word of ALLAH thats the reason it is called ALLAH WALI LAKE umer is standing the rock of this mountain let me show you some more scenes at below plains so we are feeling satisfied after coming to this place and we dont want to leave but Umer is forcing to leave now :-) Anyways. it was really wonderful

I am 100% sure you have also enjoyed by watching this video and you will also think of coming here once The path is quiet dangerous for bike i would rather say, it is very challenging The bike tyres gets stucked in big stones The bikes are almost here, lets reach there and start the journey So the return journey has begun we will drive slowly. Its 2:45 PM and its getting cold now we have to drive very carefully on these stones so after driving 1.5hr on these stones, we reached at Astore Checkpost so viewers finally we have reached at Astore check post and now moving towards Astore City so this is now Astore Bazar Here are some snack outlets Kamran Hotel - Astore So now we are in Kamran Hotel a 3 bed room in 1000 Rs per night on the road towards Rama Lake Lets explore in the evening Let remove bags and helmet :-) Its evening and Polo statue is at our back and we are walking to find something to eat otherwise we will have some snacks and also we have to make tomorrow's plan which we don't know yet here is some restaurant so we discussed next plan with the restaurant owner and slept after having the tea
