BEAUTIFUL LAKE SAIF UL MALUK
 
  Lake SAIF UL MALUK

Lake Saiful Muluk is a lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley.

The lake is accessible by a 14 km road from Naran (which is accessible by a road from Mansehra via Balakot and Kaghan) during the summer months. On foot, the trek from Naran to the lake takes about 4-6 hours. The water is clear with a slight green tone. The clarity of the water comes from the multiple glaciers all around the high basin which feed the lake.

 

 
  A fairy tale called SAIF UL MALUK, written by the famous poet "Mian Muhammad Buksh", is associated with the lake. It is the story of prince of Persia who fell in love with a fairy princess at the lake. The impact of the lake beauty is of such extent that people believe that fairies come down to lake in full moon.
