Kaghan Valley - وادی کاغان
Kaghan Valley is an alpine-climate valley in Mansehra District of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan. Landslides caused by the devastating 2005 Kashmir earthquake closed the Kaghan Valley road and cut off the valley from the outside. The road now has been rebuilt. The valley extends 155 kilometers (96 mi), rising from an elevation of 2,134 feet (650 m) to its highest point, the Babusar Pass, at 13,690 feet (4,170 m)
Lake Saiful Muluk - جھیل سیف الملوک
Lake Saiful Muluk is a mountainous lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near the town of Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan and feeds water to Kunhar river. At an elevation of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level, it is well above the tree line, and is one of the highest lakes in Pakistan.
Dudipatsar Lake or Dudipat Lake is a lake encircled by snow clad peaks in Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park. The lake lies in the extreme north of the Kaghan Valley. The word "dudi" means white, "pat" means mountains and "sar" means lake. This name has been given to the lake because of the white color of snow on surrounding peaks. In summer the water of the lake reflects like a mirror. The word "sar" is used with the name of each lake in the area, translating as 'lake.' The lake's water is a beautiful greenish blue hue and very cold, at an elevation of 3,800 meters (12,500 ft). The surrounding mountains, with snow patches in the shady dales, average around 4,800 meters (15,700 ft) in elevation. Lulusar Lake, also in the park, is the primary headwaters of the Kunhar River. Saiful Muluk National Park, with Saif ul Maluk Lake, is adjacent in the 150 kilometers (93 mi) long Kaghan Valley region and together the parks protect 88,000 hectares (220,000 acres).
Wildlife of the lake and its wetlands habitats are of significant ecological importance for resident fauna and migratory waterfowl. Some of the park's fauna includes the snow leopard, black bear, marmot, weasel, lynx, leopard, Himalayan snow-cock, and snow partridge. The lake had an abundance of trout, but illegal fishing with dynamite and nets resulted in a sharp decline in fish population.
The Dudipatsar Trek is an approximately 18 km (11 mi) hiking trail in the Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, in northern Pakistan. The trail goes along a tributary of the Kunhar River called Poorbi Narr in the northern Kaghan Valley. The headwaters for the particular tributary is the Dudipat Lake and the trail has a cumulative elevation gain of 640 meters (2,100 ft). The average time taken to complete the trail is 5 to 8 hours.
