Naran Kaghan, Pakistan

Lalazar is a tourist spot situated 21 km from Naran in Kaghan Valley, Pakistan. It is located at the height of 10,499 feet (3,200 meters).

Lalazar is a lush green meadow with full of wild flowers and pine and fir forest. The road 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. Lalazar is a place where one would enjoy camping. It is a must-see when visiting the Kaghan Valley and attracts lots of visitors every year. Its great beauty is highly appreciated, and people go to see its beautiful wildlife. It is also a full day trip like Saiful Maluk. On a clear sunny day, its possible to view the 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 the River Kunhar flowing roughly thousands of miles below the altitude you would be standing. It is accessible by a jeep track from Naran via Battakundi. Lalazar is situated on the other end of Lake Saiful Muluk, over the mountain; a small resort worth visiting. A large green plateau gives a lovely view of the valley below. The place can be reached through the deadliest track on jeep with several twists and turn. For hiker lovers, there is another track, a 5-hour hike, over a mountain pass from Lake Saiful Muluk. You may find a guide. One can get a chance to see the rare wildlife variety of "Markhoor" on this track during the months of October and November.
