It seems you are visiting first time to that beautiful land of Pakistan and the very sorry fact who ever did forwarded you the wrong information by threatening you. Keep in mind north Pakistan is 100% safe and that's why foreign tourists visiting in most charming three seasons.

How many members and for how long your trip will be?

Can recommend you this company www.visitatp.com to know the ground realities, i know they are professional and do conducting tours not only for Pakistanis but also for foreigners. Try to know about your travel desitination what ever you want from them.

Happy Travels!

If you're travelling to Naran during summer or during holiday times then be sure to book accommodation well in advance. PTDC has some guest houses that are of acceptable standard. It takes about 30 mins to get upto the lake Saif ul Malook. Although very impressive I was disappointed by all the litter & rubbish left by visitors.

As mentioned above, no problems about security in that area. It's quite safe.

Brother Aamir I think you might find this link helpful http://visitkaghan.com

there is so much to explore in Kaghan Valley, as you start climbing up from balakot there are three abshar (waterfall) hotels where you should try atleast pakoras while sitting on tables placed in the shallow chilly water streams, Kiwai is probably the official start of Kaghan valley and a small detour will take you to shogran, further upahead siri (a pond which some call lake) and the paye meadows, if you are adventurous you can trek Makra peak as well for some wonderful views of Neelum valley including Muzuffarabad and Kaghan valley.

Some people prefer to hire SUV/Jeep from Kiwai for sir/paye with a small stop over at shogran, as hiring a SUV/Jeep from Shogran onwards (which is a must) is a bit expensive according to the fixed rates comparatively, if you hire from Kiwai you have the leverage of bargaining rates but from Shogran its fixed. If you plan to stay at KPK government rest house in Shogran then you need to make a booking from Peshawer before leaving, needless to say they have the best lawn and building in the vicinity, though pine park hotel is oldest and well known and also expensive is now feeling its age.

On left side of Kunhar river is Sharan where very few people visit thick pine forest main attraction there is a hill named Mussa ka musala (Moses praying mat)

Stopover at Shinu to view trout farm, but the crown jewel of Kaghan valley is saif ul malook lake which can be reached from Naran on a SUV/Jeep or trekking on foot for some stunning views of Malika parbat's reflection in the water (highest peak of the valley) if prepared adequately you can camp there on a full moon night and hear the legend of Saif and Malook associated with the lake from a professional story teller there while enjoying a hot cup of coffee/tea. (Personally I think there should be a limit on the number of visitors visiting the lake as it has become way overcrowded and unfortunately there are people who dont mind at all littering the place with trash graciously).

While you are in Naran try river rafting in river Kunhar as well if you fancy or visit the cave where saif and malook hid otherwise you can move further ahead for Lalazar, Jhalkad, payala lake, Besal, dudipatsar lake, sat siri mala series of lake, lulusar lake, babusar top (if weather is right you can get to see Nanga Parbat from there) or Sapat valley as well.

Try to find PTDC office in Islamabad and ask them if they have guide book for Kaghan valley otherwise they will have maps indicating Points of interest which is a must before heading in that direction.

If you can also try to visit following link for latest updates as some of the areas are open only late in the season pakwheels.com/forums/road-trips-vacations/21…
