[18 Photos] Mencari Lunch di Besham, Kanak-Kanak Pakistan Bermata Hijau & Suasana Bandar Besham | Northern Pakistan 2013 | Day 1/6 – Part 13

Besham juga dikenali sebagai Besham Qala. Kami tiba di Bandar Besham dalam jam 3 petang. Memang tengah lapar. Kami mengisi minyak Prado dan kembali menelusuri Karakoram Highway mencari kedai makan untuk santapan makan tengahari. Besham agak popular juga di Pakistan. Suatu bandar yang paling besar di dalam Daerah Shangla. Anda boleh juga ke Lembat Swat yang terkenal melalui Besham. Ikut kiri dan anda akan melalui Shangla Pass dan akan singgah ke Khawazakhela sebelum ke Madyan, Mingora dan Lembah Swat yang terkenal.

Ketika kami berada di Besham, terdapat beberapa rakyat Malaysia dari Suruhanjaya Tinggi Malaysia di Islamabad sedang dalam perjalanan ke Lembah Swat untuk lawatan rasmi. Dengarnya ramai juga warga Pakistan yang boleh berbahasa Melayu di Swat Valley. Menyesal juga tidak dapat ikut trip mereka. Apakan daya saya harus memilih di antara trip ke Lembah Swat atau ke Khunjerab Pass. Dah saya memilih untuk ke Khunjerab Pass di sempadan Pakistan-China. Sesal dahulu pendapatan, sesal kemudian, sampai ke Khunjerab Pass lah jawabnya.

“Eh Syazwan, ko snap sket gambar budak ni. Mata dia hijau tu! “pinta saya.

“Wah! mata hijau la budak ni. Ni bukan contact lens ni” ujar Syazwan.

Kami terserempak dengan seorang budak warga Pakistan yang bermata hijau ketika kami memberhentikan Prado kami untuk mengisi diesel. Matanya berwarna hijau dan saya percaya ianya mata asli bukannya contact lens. Kami meminta dia posing untuk diambil gambarnya. Memang ramai juga warga Pakistan yang berwarna biru dan hijau di belah-belah Utara Pakistan ini. Lagi utara anda jelajah, lagi ramailah warga Pakistan yang bermata hijau dan biru.

Saya rasa semacam tidak senang dengan Bandar Besham kali ini. Mungkin sebab hanya kami sahaja orang asing di sini. Kebiasaannya keadaan agak selamat. Namun kali ini disebabkan kami membawa dua kenderaan dan hanya kami berempat sahaja orang asing, saya agak gelisah. Bandar ini semacam dark night city atau Gotham City pula. Kami perlu segera mencari tempat makan dan bergegas untuk keluar dari Indus Kohistan secepat mungkin.

Pemandu kami Sardar Tariq Khan mengisyaratkan yang kami perlu keluar sedikit dari Bandar Besham untuk singgah makan tengahari di sebuah hotel di hujung bandar. Kami segera menelusuri kambali Karakoram Highway dan mencari hotel atau kedai makan yang dimaksudkan oleh Sardar Tariq Khan. Dah lapar betul rasanya kali ini. Kena makan cepat. Sakit perut susah pula nanti nak berkelana hari ini.

Apa-apa pun kita layan dulu gambar-gambar berskala besar travelogue kali ini di bawah ya !
