kAgHaN (nArAn) vAlLy !!!

A holiday in the Kaghan Valley, the Himalayan hide-away, north-east of the Hazara district of Pakistan¹s North West Frontier Province, is an unforgettable experience. Its mountains, dales, lakes, water-falls, streams and glaciers are still in an unbelievably pristine state, an unspoilt paradise. That is why it can be such a deeply satisfying experience to spend a few days in Kaghan Valley at Shogran and Lalazar or PTDC Motel Complex at Naran.

The Valley extends for 155 km rising from an elevation of 2,134 meters to its highest point , the Babusar Pass, at 4,145 meters. Kaghan is at its best in summer months (May to September). In May the temperature is: maximum 10.55°C (51°F) and the minimum 2.8°C (37°F). From the middle of July up to the end of September, the road beyond Naran, snow-bound throughout the winter, is open right up to Babusar Pass. Movement is restricted during the monsoon season also.

How to get there
The Kaghan Valley is accessible by road from Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Peshawar. You can drive in your own car, rented car, station wagon or bus to Abbotabad (116 km from Rawalpindi/Islamabad and 217 km from Peshawar). Abbotabad is a charming town spread out over several low, refreshing green hills. From there you drive up to Balakot (72 km), the gateway to Kaghan Valley. Here you have to switch over to jeeps for your drive to Shogran, Kaghan and Naran, the half-way point and the base camp for the whole valley. From here you can ride a jeep or horse or hike to lakes, valleys and peaks.

Lake Saiful Muluk has a touch of unreal about it, nestling 3,200 meters (10,500 feet) high in the shadow of the Malika Parbat (Queen of the mountains) 5,292 meters (17,360 feet) high. You can go boating on the lake and hear the local legend about Prince Saiful Muluk who fell in love with a fairy. Further up are quaint woodland villages: Battakundi, Burawai, Besal Gittidas and Lalazar.

The Kaghan Valley is blocked at the end by high mountains but a pass lets the jeepable road snake over into the Gilgit Valley. This is the 4,145 meters (13,600 ft) high Babusar Pass which commands the whole Kaghan panorama as well as gives you, on a clear day, glimpses of the Nanga Parbat (Naked Mountain) glistening at 8,126 meters (26,660 ft.)

Fishing is the chief sport in Kaghan. Brown trout and Mahasheer are stocked in the pure silvery waters between Kaghan and Naran. The Kunhar river trout is considered best in the sub-continent.

Fishing licences are issued by either the Fisheries Department at Naran or the Trout Hatchery at Shinu (Rs. 10 per day).

Where to stay
PTDC Motel Complex at Naran offers comfortable accommodation. There are many hotels and reasonably priced rest-houses, too. Youth hostels are at Balakot, Naran, Sharan and Batakundi.

What to buy
Kaghan is noted for its artistically-carved walnut handicrafts, embroidered shawls, shirts, woollen blankets and Œnamdas¹ (woollen felt rugs).

As an entity, Pakistan is a new country which emerged on the world map in 1947.
Situated between Central and Southern Asia, Pakistan stretches from the golden beaches of the Arabian Sea to the formidably high mountains of Central Asia. With a population of nearly 130 million people, it is three times the size of Great Britain (covering an area of 891,940 sq. km) and is bordered by China, Iran, Afghanistan and India.
Pakistan is divided into four Provinces: Sind, Baluchistan, Punjab and Sarhad. The latter is also known as the North West Frontier Province. They are populated by ethnically diverse people who speak a variety of languages.
Urdu is the official National language whilst Sindhi, Baluchi, Punjabi and Pushto are the main provincial languages. But, there are many more regional languages and dialects.
Pakistan is perhaps one of the few “undiscovered” destinations of Asian tourism waiting to be discovered. With its traditional hospitality and diverse attractions, Pakistan is an ideal country to visit throughout the year because it offers “something for everyone”.

We always take a lot of time deciding when to go and where to go on vacation. I first read &heared about Dubai in a local newspaper about 4-5 years back and this was the first time I realised that it would be a fun destination.The article described a town of many contrasts; a town under a great development; a town filled with shopping possibilities and cheap gold.
The rumour is that it is best to visit Dubai in the spring and fall. In the summer it can get VERY hot (up to 50 degrees Celsius). Going there in Dec & Feb was great for us.
Dubai, has an excellent nightlife scene (except for Monday's which tends to be pretty dead) with a large choice of bars and nightclubs for you to be able to enjoy whilst there. Below is a list of some of the more popular bars, with a review that will help you to choose where to go and when. You will need to know that most of the bars that can serve alcohol are only in hotels, there are though a few exceptions, and most of these are reviewed here. Dubai also has some interesting laws regarding clubs; they all must close at 3 am, you must be 21 to drink alcohol, 25 to enter a nightclub, and interestingly they are not allowed by law to refuse entrance to anyone, including members only clubs. Having said that this does not mean that you will be able to walk into any members club free of charge, a lot of the members clubs have very high entrance fees, that they will charge you if you do insist on applying the law and entering the club. This to be honest is a good thing as it allows the clubs to ensure a good mixture of clientele. We have included below tips on how to get into some of the most exclusive clubs, so please do read the reviews thoroughly. Have a great time.
