Three way water-fall

SPECTACULAR WATER-FALLS IN KAGHAN.... River Kunhar Review

Its amazing! Kaghan Valley is full of different natural beauties like lakes,rivers & mountains etc. But where there is a mountain there will be a water fall as well such case is in this beautiful valley. During your tour around the Valley on the main road you will come across several water-falls coming down fron thousands of feet.So one can't help stop himself to park his car or jeep on one side & enjoy this natural work..The water will be extremely cold & drinkable so donot forget to fill your jugs........

Address: Naran, Kaghan Valley.

Beautiful Siran Valley - Naran

Beautiful Siran Valley

Paras & Siran Valley.... Shogran Review

At Paras, 20 minutes north of Kawai, a rough track crosses the river and climbs 15Km to Sharan, in the middle of nowhere at 2,400m. From Here you can hike through the forest or trek overnight across beautiful Siran Valley, north of Mansehra(though a local guide can help you find the trail and avoid the occasional black bear and wild cat). The next stop is a small village of Sinhu and from there the road continues to Jared.

Address: Kaghan Valley.

Bridge over River Kunhar at Balakot - Naran

Balakot: Starting Point of Kaghan Valley River Kunhar Review

The soothing notes of the Kaghan valley permeate your senses as you reach the small beautiful town of Balakot. Set against the backdrop of snow-covered peaks, Balakot fills yours soul with the perfectly orchestrated, timeless melody of nature. Overlooking the historical town of Balakot divided by River Kunhar, Pine park is located on the hill-top along the winding Kaghan valley road. Balakot was the scene of a battle in the continuing struggle between the Sikhs and the Muslim tribesmen in the early 19th century. The Muslim leader Ahmed Shah Brailwi, originally from Bereli, (In India), was killed here in 1831 by the Sikhs. His Tomb is green-tiled monument near the Kunhar River.
Balakot, the gateway to the Kaghan valley, is about a four -hour drive, without stops, from Rawalpindi/Islamabad. Buses, minibuses and wagons leave Rawalpindi continuously for Mansehra on the Karakoram Highway and take about three hours. Change at Mansehra for Balakot and Naran.

Address: Naran, Kaghan Valley.

Malkandi Forest...Kaghan Valley(Pakistan) - Naran

Malkandi Forest...Kaghan Valley(Pakistan)

Malkandi Forest Shogran Review

8 miles on the western slopes of Kaghan is Kamalban, a heavily populated forest of black bears and leopards, which do incalculable harm to the crops and young trees. Killing a bear is a big game and you'll get reward for shooting down a bear from forest officer as well as from the peasants. Besides these you'll be able to find Muskdeer, thar and goral, Chikore and Himalayan pheasants all over the valley. And if you'll go a little higher you'll be able to find red bear, snow leopard and ibex and occasionally a snow partridge or Ram Chikore or Murgh-I-Zarrin.

Address: Kaghan Valley.

Lake Dudipatsar..Kaghan Valley - Naran

Lake Dudipatsar..Kaghan Valley

LAKE DUDIPATSAR Dudipatsar Lake Review

Near the Babusar top at the Babusar pass lies the "Dudupatsar Lake" with its beautiful greenish blue waters & very cold too.The word "sar" is used with the name of each lake in the area meaning lake.In the summer when the water of the lake reflects like a mirror a large number of visitors from different areas of the country come to watch the enchanting views of these lake.Dudipat Lake (Dudipat Sar in local language) is six or seven hours walking distance from Besal. Half of this distance is steady climbing on a clear path then the valley opens out to wide, flat pastureland. The deep blue Dudipat Sar, at 3,800 meters, is surrounded by green hills at about 4,800 meters, with snow patches in the shady hollows.

River Kunhar - Naran

River Kunhar

FISHING IN KUNHAR AT NARAN... River Kunhar Review

The plethora of sights in this 160 kilometre-long valley is unbelievable: the Kunhar River, swollen by glacier melt, meanders its way through the valley, and is the perfect river for trout fishers.Fishing is must in the deep,cold & blue water of Kunhar in Naran where it is at level with you but to do so Fishing license is required which will be cheapily & easily granted to you from the Fishing Department. I can't explain the excitement when you hook a delecious "Trout" in your Rod.
