5 ( out of a long list)

Standard

Number 1 on my list is ,The Lake of Fairies – Jheel Saif ul malook

I want to visit this lake in all seasons ( though it is very difficult  in winter or rain, due to rough tracks and bad weather condition), but the view of Lake is so unique and beautiful in different weathers.

Saiful Muluk (Urdu: جھیل سیف الملوک‎) is an alpine lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley (34°52′37.34″N 73°41′37.71″E), near the town of Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan. At an altitude of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level it is amongst one of the highest lakes in Pakistan. There is also a similar named fictional story associated with the lake.

The weather here is moderate during day time while the temperature drops to minus degrees at night.

  2. I have never been. Maybe I should add Pakistan to my Bucket List. Love these pictures. The Lake is really gorgeous.

    • Thank you so much 🙂

      Well there is a fairy tale related to this lake. They say in night this lake is surrounded by angels and other spirits, which dance and wander there. People camped there in night as well just to experience these things but who knows what they experience, never heard directly from any one but still the fairy tale is always in our mind and who ever visited this lake is always mesmerized.

      You are most welcome to Pakistan, these are only 5 things out of a long list really..

      May Allah bless you, ameen

  3. Wow that is an amazing list! I love the pictures! I have a lake at the top of the mountain on my list of places to see too. It’s called Mount Katahdin, which means “The Greatest Mountain,” in Penobscot (The tribe native to that region.) My mother is a Penobscot descendant.
    The Karakoram Highway looks scary! I think I’d be terrified to drive there! Quetta looks like somebody put New York City in the mountains – except there isn’t much food growing in New York City! It would be wonderful to have the chance to visit just one of the places on your list. I really hope you do, I would love to hear about it!
