LALAZAR

LALAZAR:

Lalazar is the second visit that most tourist do when visiting Naran (Saiful Muluk is the first). Situated on the other end of Lake Saiful Muluk, over the mountain, at a distance of 21 km from Naran via Battakundi, located at 3,200m, it is a 1/2-day jeep excursion with several twists and turn. Lalazar is accessible by a muddy narrow jeep track. A jeep track from battakundi climbs up the plateau. Theroad to Lalazar is a typical Pakistani Mountain road, with hills on one side and a deep “Khud” (valley) on the other side.The only difference was that the “Khud” is the Kunhar River. This beautiful meadow is awash with colourful alpine flowers in spring and summer, and set amongst the cool pine forests. It is the most beautiful hill station in Kaghan Valley with itsmeadows and pine thickets. A large green plateau gives a nice view of the valley below. The views are breathtakingly beautiful at sunrise. You can find a couple of small resturants there for breakfast & refreshments. The native people & their lives are very simple. On a clear sunny day, its possible to view snow covered peak of “Falak Sonia” from Lalazar. This peak has also got a fairy tale story in its background like most of the other places in Kaghan Valley. You may also see River Kunhar flowing roughly thousands of mile below the altitude you would be standing.
