I want to visit Naran in this March, Pl, Comments
Many years ago I have been to Naran and the place was truly amazing. A friend of mine was there in 2005 and his general comment was that the place is not like what we have seen, too commercialised.
Having said this, it is still worth a visit. Explore areas beyond Naran to Babusar pass, still unspoilt.
Its a suitable time. Just go & grab it. If you have time do visit to Shogran & Sri Paye too.
Kaghan is really a place worth to visit. These places are like small pieces of heaven on this planet, it would be an adventure too specially journey to Ansoo Lake, Normally women don't go there but if you're accompanying someone and want to take her there then I have some advices for you,, like take a guide from Lake Saiful-Malook, and yes do have umbrellas,, because in Naran weather is never predicted, it changes in hours and yes it is quite safe for a husband and a wife travel alone there, people of Kaghan Valley are really nice, but yes as you know the only source of their income is these few months, so they don’t spare any moment to get money, infect you can get all facilities as usual by money, but yes there are some cheap places too.
Bala Kot is the starting place of the Kaghan valley, people can stay there too, it is more like a big city, every kind of facility is there, and the come small towns like Kewai,, Shino Paras, and then its come Kaghan,, but you will be surprised to see it, and all the images you made in you mind will be scattered away, as it kind of some houses on the slope on both sides of road nothing else obviously you would not like to stay there, so after taking a short rest and tea just get ready for Naran, the real places in Kaghan valley actually it is the middle point in valley,, there you will see it is like a valley there is bazaar and nice hotels some are expansive some are cheap, just take a little wandering in hotel to hotel you soon will find one according to your wish and the pocket, Naran is the place where you can stay and make little trips daily, trips like:
• one to saifulmalook,, and further lake ansoo, but if you can walk and climb up hiking for about 8 hours, then think of trying to hike up to Ansoo lake , other wise just stay at saiful malook enjoy walking around the lake, take lunch there and if you like stay to watch sun set, you will have to hire a jeep to take you to lake saifulmalook, when hiring a jeep do bargain a little, local people don’t mind bargaining, but of course you know it too should have limit, this trip will take all your day.
• And next day you can go to Lalazar,, this will too take one day,
• in evening you can enjoy the walk in naran bazar, sit on the side of river kunhar
I think if you buy a map from local shop at kaghan or in naran, it will b great, well before going to the town of kaghan,
• There is a place called kewai, from there you can go to Shogran,, it is really worth to see, there are lot of hotels so you can stay there, and from there you can goto Seri, and Payee, it is must see place, you will love this but it will again consume full day of your, well to visit this whole valley might take one full months.
Can any one send me complete hotels list of Naran and their phone numbers
