A quick hiking trip and guide to satsar mala lakes.

This is a story about my adventure to Satsar Mala Lakes. The lake is located In kaghan valley. A few km ahead of Besal and trek starts just after the main point of Lulusar lake. Now arises the question that what kind of vehicles can approach this lake? Just to clear that every kind of vehicles can go to start point of trek.
My journey was of two days starting from my home to sat sar mala and back home again. In this journey I travelled for 26 Hours and Trekked for 06 Hours. I Rested for 03 Hours

It started as a unplanned event of life. I got a call from an old trekking buddy. He want to start his trekking again or should I say he was looking forward to “Re-Trekking” his MBA occupied him so much that he couldn’t continue his first love. So when I got his call I contacted another close buddy. Now the team is prepare we had just one problem left. Time! We didn’t have much time so it was decided to do this trip on weekend. As the weekend was approaching people start backing out. Now that the initiator of the plan is out. I start thing why did this plan ever came into my life I was living happily without it. But now I feel the urge to complete it. At this moment I realized that if the initiator was out from the plan it doesn’t mean that there is no plan, there is definitely a plan to execute. A couple of sudden changes were required to get the maximum benefit from the already half cooked plan. So without exerting a much load on brain, we decided to give it a try to execute our plan. A try, unless we have to change our minds to postpone it. So we went with the try. Generally we used to go on public transport but this time due to Time constraints, we decided to give a try on own vehicle. It was a quick trip but I enjoyed every moment of it. It gave me courage to fulfill my dreams even when there is no road map left to follow.
