Incredible Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
Treks and Expeditions You Will Never Forget
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, in Pakistan’s northwest, has long been an irresistible magnet for adventurers and explorers, renowned worldwide for its rugged mountains, lush valleys, and rolling hills. The landscape is dotted with blue-green lakes brimming with oversized trout and other delectable fish. Steeped in multi-cultural history, the area is filled with Buddhist and Hindu archaeological sites as well as remnants of the ancient Gandhara civilisation.
Chitral Valley includes the city and the clear azure-colored river by this name in the northern part of the district, long the capital of the principality by the same name. It is the jumping-off point for expeditions and treks to surrounding mountains, though the town itself is filled with history.
Kaghan Valley, in Mansehra district, has a unique alpine climate and landscape that attracts visitors from across the country and around the world. The dramatic mountain scenery combines deep blues and green with the stark black and white of the surrounding snow-covered mountain peaks. Crystalline lakes fill the lowest places of the valley, surrounded by majestic fir trees.
Swāt Valley is renowned for its outstanding rugged beauty, with cold blue rivers tumbling over the rocks and forming waterfalls and rapids, sheltered by snow-covered peaks, luring the adventurous.
In the Chitral district, Kalash Valley is home to one of South Asia’s most ancient culture, known worldwide for its colourful costumes, fascinating festivals and distinctive way of living.
Saiful Muluk Lake, high in the mountains at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near Naran, is protected by a National Park to preserve its natural beauty. The lake, formed by glacial moraines, feeds the Kunhar river below. You can row around it in distinctive red wooden boats.
Ansoo Lake is located near Malika Parbat in the Himalayan foothills. The Urdu name is derived from the lake’s distinctive tear-drop shape, though others think it resembles a human eye beneath an rocky ridge which looks like an eyebrow after ice melts in summer.
Lulusar Lake, at 3,410 m (11,190 ft) above sea level, is surrounded by vaunting peaks and vast glaciers, shouldered by steep green slopes plunging to its rocky shores. It is the primary headwater for the Kunhar River, flows southwest through the Kaghan Valley till it meets the Jhelum River.
This scenic alpine lake on the Bahrain hilltop above Swat Valley appears to some like a giant amoeba sprawling and spilling over a vast area. Accessible only during summer, it can be approached on rough roads by jeep to Gabina Jabba, where half-day treks lead to the lake.
