I had a wish to witness autumn colors for a long time and on Dec 1st, I decided to visit Abbottabad and Galiyat. It was a 12th Rabi' al-awwal evening and the country was celebrating the birthday of the Islamic prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). The plan was to leave late night and experience the sunrise on Karakorum Highway.
"Why not I take the Nathiagali road to reach Islamabad?" I thought, having a cup of tea in "Bhai Sweet & Hotel". The road would be more scenic filled with many interesting places like Donga Gali, Pipeline trek, Nathiagali and Muree. Unknowing the condition of the road I started off hesitantly.
