In spite of the fact that it’s generally incredible and overlooked contrasted with Pakistan’s most well known places of interest, I think Yarkhun Valley was the most wonderful spot I visited in the nation. Situated in the Upper Chitral locale of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Yarkhun stuns with its mountain ranges and immaculate towns.
Arriving at the valley, which extends for some kilometers past the managerial town of Mastuj, requires a touch of exertion in the event that you don’t have your own vehicle. On the off chance that you do have one however, the ride isn’t really awful – simply get ready for generally earth streets!
The side valley of Gazin is undoubtedly worth a diversion in the event that you make it right to Yarkhun. Here, you can see the mountains of the Thoi Pass, a high-height pass that associates Upper Chitral with Yasin Valley in Gilgit Baltistan.
A delightful blue lake encompassed by fall foliage, one of the most lovely places in Pakistan.
Phander Lake, situated in Phander Village, is unrealistic. The blue-green shaded lake sits quietly among light-green trees befitting a scene painting. Notwithstanding being madly wonderful, Phander Lake doesn’t see anyplace as near the quantity of sightseers as the more well known Attabad Lake does.
During the 4 days I spent in Phander loosening up lakeside, I didn’t experience some other vacationers. In the event that you do visit, I enthusiastically suggest you remain at the Lake Inn, which is a short leave and charges 1,000 rupees for each night. There is additionally the costly (5,000 rupees) PTDC that ignores the lake, yet the accommodation and incentive at Lake Inn rule prevalent.

Naltar Valley is about 54 kilometers (34 miles) from Gilgit City in Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region. The popular tourist attraction is known for its deep forests, a collection of crystal-clear lakes, and in the winter, skiing facilities.
Though many tourists just come for the slopes, I think the real magic of Naltar can only be witnessed in the summer months when the lakes unfreeze and the forests can be best enjoyed.
This magical valley is only accessible via Jeep, but public transport does exist from Gilgit. There are a number of hotels and guesthouses to accommodate tourists in the valley’s two villages.

The valley of Rumbur is especially shocking. Here, kilometers of dusty street and mountains thunder close by the Kalash River. The Kalash public live in wooden homes that stick to the high slopes, and the ladies are especially popular for their splendidly hued conventional dress and headwear that varies from whatever else one can discover in Pakistan.

Deosai is the combination of two words ‘Deo’ (giant) and ‘Sai’ (shadow). For centuries, it is believed that this place is haunted by giants, therefore the name ‘The Land of the Giants’ came into being. The weather in quite unpredictable here, sometimes it starts snowing in summer. Sunlight and clouds seem to play hide and seek here, with the sun shining one minute, and overcast in next.
This area remained uncrossable for ages due to abundance of variety of wildlife here. Icy winds, thunderstorms, and presence of wildlife make it impossible to dwell here even in this time and age, that’s why Deosai is mostly uninhabited.
Nomads from Kashmir pass through the Deosai plains with their herds, it is their path of choice since centuries.
Deosai has a deafening silence, a silence spanning over centuries. The silence is so deep that one can hear his own heartbeat, unless a marmot’s whistle fills the valley.
Deosai is located on the boundary of Karakoram and the western Himalayas, and at no point it is less than 4000 meters above sea level. It remains covered with snow for 8 months.
