Naran Kaghan Travel Guide
Naran is a medium-sized city located in the upper kaghan valley that’s part of Khyber Pakhtun khawa province of Pakistan. It’s among the most amazing part of northern areas in Pakistan that’s raised 2500 meters above sea level. Its attractiveness captures a lot of people towards itself and thus it is a famous resort for tourists and trekkers. The weather of Naran is very cold. The ice on the mountain shirts never meltsin weeks of June and Jully there are glaciers and hills are covered with snow.
The path to naran valley travells along with River Kunhar that Starts from the glaciers of Kaghan and flow down deep in Mansehra. The regional languages of Naran Valley are Hindko and Gojri but each individual over there can talk and understand Urdu. The dress is Shalwar kameez with long-tail shalwars. The majority of the individuals are tall. The average height of men was about 5”8′ or’ 5”9′.
They welcome the tourists very well and treats them just like their particular friends. Their main source of income is the tourists as well as their jobs include tour guides, resthouse managers, store keepers, restaurant workers, Jeep drivers, some of them also grow crops and some of them are shepherds. However, their entire fortune is just gathered up in the summer season as in winters the entire place is covered up in snow and they have to move down to mansehra or any other place. Because of this the prices on the market are little greater. For instance the price of 100 rupee cellphone card is about 107 around there. But I believe that is fair enough as they this source of earnings just for a limited time.
Women are housewifes mostly stays at home. I found only one govt primary school where a number of the local’s children went for analyzing. Beside that there was no system of education overthere. Mostly teens were functioning as travel guides and shopkeepers along with their dads or uncles etc..
The key items of Naran valley are dry fruits and Handicrafts. One of those handicrafts you should buy are the carved Walnuts and another famous issue is that the Namdas, the woolen felt rugs while woolen shawls, embroidered shawls and shirts are also avalibale. These areas have cottage industries running and you can wind up having excellent bargains. Hand made posts are homeless from the shops at the main market.
Naran also includes a small bazaar like Murree mall road. The basic necessities of life are readily available at there. Cellular networks, cellular shopes, bakery, general store, tailors and even barbers can be found in the primary bazar. It’s over 100 hotels of different types ranging from high-end luxury hotels to very low priced motels. Tent motels will also be present which let family size tents for tourists to stay in.
River Kunhar goes through town. Some hotels are situated at the banks of this river. That sound provides a great pleasure. At day time Poeple appreciate fishing at the river. Some peple just sit by the river and place their feet under the cool water. You will feel shadowy in Naran valley in the afternoon because these large mountains will stop sun light to reach from the valley.
Saifulmuluk is is situated 8 kilometers north of Naran. It takes 1 hour to achieve saiful malook from Naran. An individual can discover a good deal of 4×4 jeeps in the outskirts of city. All these jeeps takes the tourists from Naran valley to Saiful Malook. Since the street there is very rough and there are glaciers all of the way up so just people jeeps and the local drivers can take you up therePeople hire those jeeps and see Saiful Malook along with their families. Many people today prefer trekking over riding the Jeep, specialy that the youngsters which build-up to Saiful Malook. You will find restaurants and stores located at Saiful Malook aswell. People enjoy horse riding at there.
Saiful malook is a lake that’s situated in the midle of mountains, which during the year are covered with snow. Among those renowned hills is Malika Parbat which is placed on the remaining jheel. Saifulmalook is called after a folk tale. It is the story of the prince of Persia who fell in love with a fairy princess in the lake. The impact of the lake attractiveness is of such extent that people feel that fairies return to lake in full moon. The colour of water is blue and it is crystal clear. An individual can’t place his feet under it for more then 30 minutes.
Ansu is tear shaped high altitude lake located adjacent to Malika Parbat. It can be attained via 11 km road beginning at Saif-ul-Malook. Lake remains accessible from early May until late December, together with deteriorating weather making it hard at start and finish of season.
Lalazar is a plateau formerly known for beautiful wild flowers and calming walnut forests. Though recently cultivation of potato and other corps diminished the natural beauty, but still magical perspective of Malika Parbnat lush meadows make it a must visit. Lalazar can be reached through a muddy Jeep track of one hour starting from Battakundi. Some people prefer hiking overriding that the jeep. One famous, medium trek beginning from Lake Saif ul Malook through scenic Hans Gali finishes at Lalazar
One thing which I dissuade about that area is our seniors tells us if we proceed 20 30 years back,this place was in its authentic all-natural form and it was wonderfull. It is a common perception that any location which human hasn’t discovered yet remains in its natural form. People today donot care and perform the littering allover the area. Junks of garbage could be discovered in the corners of the market place. Dust because of visitors has generated pollution. At saif ulmalook individuals throw rappers and leftovers at the lake. There has to be some body to take responsibility and all these actions have to be taken care of.
