on the way to phander ...river flows all the way

Go for fishing guyssss

Just 2 days after i arrived here, my friend ask me to follow him to this area called PHANDER VALLEY for fishing. He said TROUT FISH can be easily found there and the taste is good. So hmm......whenever anyone say about good food, i wana try them so we hire a car with a driver and went up to PHANDER VALLEY. Its taking 1.5 hours to GHIZER and about 3 hours to phander from GHIZER. winding road and bumpy roads and sometimes there are landslides in between the stretch then you will have to slow down. My friends's sister and niece vomitted and hving headache because they are not used to travel so far with such condition hahahah.Me? I am enjoying the ride...even though i was having stomachache and day.When we arrived, rent the fishing rods and start fishing. Its a unique experience, very different way of fishing..A MUST TRY. I slept on the grass by the riverbank because i was so sleepy hahahahah..till i hear some noise of the donkeys and goats nearby hahahaha What a great out door activities! You can ask someone to fry the fish there itself to taste it. Tasted good

Visit the buddha - Gilgit
Visit the buddha

This buddha symbol is carved on the mountain and it is so high up that one keeps on wondering how did they managed to climb up so high to do it. The road leading to this place is very narrow and full of bumps. Not well kept i would say, but once you arrived here then you will feel great with a river flowing nearby. Try come between July to Sept because the weather is great, not too hot, not too cold.

Address: about 6 km from town centre

Directions: gilgit town, northern area pakistan
