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.
NUMBER 2 on my list is a very adventurous track, Gorakh Hills , Sindh
Gorakh (Urdu: گورکھ, Sindhi: گورک ) is a Hill Station of Sindh, Pakistan. It is situated at an elevation of 5,688 ft (1,734 m) in the Kirthar Mountains, 94 kilometres (58 mi) north west of Dadu city. Gorakh Hill Station is situated on one of the highest plateaus of Sindh, spread over 2,500 acres (10 km2), and due to its surroundings it attracts nature lovers. Due to its elevation, it lies in a special climatic zone, with the temperature falling below zero degrees during winter and generally staying below 20 °C even in summer, with about 120 mm of rainfall annually on average. source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorakh_Hill
Number 3 : Kalaash , Chitral , Pakistan
Number 4: Korakurm highway through the Khunjrab Pass
The Karakoram Highway (KKH) is the highest paved international road in the world.It connects China and Pakistan across the Karakoram mountain range, through the Khunjerab Pass, at an elevation of 4,693 metres (15,397 ft).Connecting China’s Xinjiang region with autonomous region of Gilgit–Baltistan and Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the road is a popular tourist attraction. Due to its high elevation and the difficult conditions in which it was constructed, it is sometimes referred to as the “Eighth Wonder of the World. source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karakoram_Highway
Khunjerab Pass (elevation 4,693 metres or 15,397 feet) is a high mountain pass in the Karakoram Mountains in a strategic position on the northern border of Pakistan’s Gilgit–Baltistan Hunza – Nagar District on the southwest border of the Xinjiang region of China. Its name is derived from Wakhi ‘Khun’ means Home and ‘Jerav’ means spring water/water falling.
NUMBER 5 : NIGHT’S OF QUETTA, which are suppose to be the most dreamy nights in Pakistan.
Quetta (Urdu: کوئٹہ, Pashto: کوېټه, Balochi: کویته ) is the provincial capital and largest city of Balochistan province of Pakistan. Quetta is also known as the Fruit Garden of Pakistan, due to the numerous fruit orchards in and around it, and the large variety and abundance of fruits and dry fruits produced there. It also has a diversified plant and animal wildlife. Quetta is situated at an average elevation of 1,680 meters (5,510 feet)above sea level,making it Pakistan’s only high-altitude major city.

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
So beautiful. Thank you for opening my eyes to them.
🙂 So did you liked them ??
🙂 Great .. Come visit Pakistan someday ..
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!
Thanks Liana for your reply.
I just a have a look of Mount Katahdin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Katahdin
This is so beautiful, Allah has created this world beautifully no doubt, but we are the one ruining it in many ways, Noise , light, air, water pollutions and then Heart and mind pollution.
May Allah keep us safe from all of them.

Wow! Talk about altitude!! I recently posted a picture of the highest road pass in SA – 2500m! Am in awe of the Karakoram and the Khunjerab pass!! The scenery is pure wizardry; and those roads mustt take nerve to dirve.
Yes 🙂 not everyone can drive here, here tourist local or international hire the local drivers and they drive so easily here. They are very trained and reliable.
