Islamabad 262 Kms away but WHERE?


Few weeks back we inquired about a visual which was taken 850 Kms away from Islamabad. Some interesting replies :-)

This time it’s nearer but is it really this near?? Where do you think this picture’s been taken.

Islamabad is just 262 KMs away ..!

Will be answered on 21st Mar !!

Credits Later…!

Update – 22nd March 2008:

Oh it’s 22nd march already … sorry for being late :)

    I know where and when this photo was taken because I’m the one who took it. As a regular reader of Islamabad Metblog — this site has been my homepage for 2 years because I thought it was a reliable source of good stories — I’m disappointed that you didn’t have the courtesy to get my permission to post this photo here.

    I have a different view of this photo. Guys going to Abbottabad will have to run off the left shoulder, those heading to Peshawar will be bumped off to right shoulder and the priviliged few heading Islamabad will use the road. The whole confusion about the disance is to discourage heavy traffic to the capital as the road cannot handle more than a few cows, buffalos, goats and perhaps a few trucks.
    By the way, what langauge does the last line on the signs belong to?
