Saif-ul-Muluk is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, it is located about 8 Km north of the town Naran in the northern end of Kaghan valley which is the northeast of Mansehra district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. We had heard the famous fairy tale in our childhood about this lake as well as created some imaginations about the beauty of this lake in our mind because we had seen the images of this lake having magical and eye-catching views. We always wished to visit this majestic lake and had been praying to God for giving us this opportunity to visit this beautiful place once in our life.

Lake Saif-ul-Muluk

It was one of the best days in our life when we heard that our company had planned a recreational trip for us and we were going to Kaghan/Naran Valley for this leisure trip. As soon as the news came, the dream was looking to be true. It was an awesome feeling because we were going to visit the place that has been blessed by God to Pakistan only.

We spent few days there and captured the beauty of this lake through our cameras.  We also observed that the best season to visit this place is Jun/July and luckily we were there during this season else it could become more difficult to reach at Lake.  You could not avail of the Jeep facility, only hiking would be the option in that case so if you don’t feel good for this exercise then visit this place during the season only.
