Tour Details


The lake was formed by glacial moraines that blocked the water of the stream passing through the valley. Before taking any indigenous name, a sufi poet Mian Muhamamd Bakhsh narrated the folklore of Persian legendary ruler named Prince Saiful Malook. He tells in his story that the prince came here and fall in the love with a fairy princess named Badri-ul-Jamala.

Lake Saif-ul-Muluk is located in the Mansehra district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, about eight kilometers north of Kaghan, in the northern part of Naran valley. Malika Parbat, the highest peak in the valley is near the lake.

Naran is a medium sized town situated in the upper Kaghan valley in KPK province of Pakistan at an elevation of 2500 m. Surrounded by green lush mountains, the landscape is elevated with grassy knolls and jagged waterfalls with dense forest clinging to the top the area if truly ablaze trout here is truly a treat between the months of late summer and winter. The neon blue ribbon of river Kunhar meanders its way through the valleys and the splattering sound of the fast flowing river makes you quiver. Naran is the place for outdoor leisure that attracts tourists from all around for fishing Trout and Mahasher. The bazaar is generally crowded with people and has a view of mall road like that of Murree at night. Naran is a one day Jeep Ride Trekking to the astounding Ansoo Lake. The temperature at Naran remains hot during the summer time and frequent snow falls during the winters keep the valley covered with snow giving away a spectacular view.
