It was quite hot in my city, Rawalpindi so in last week of summer vacations I planned to visit Kaghan valley with my family. Kaghan valley is situated in northern areas surrounded by mountains of Himalayas. From Rawalpindi it is a five hours drive in a car.
We left at 7:00PM and entered the valley via Abottabad at 12:15PM. The way grew steep and winding as we moved ahead. There are springs and waterfalls after every few steps. River Kunhar flows on one side of the road which is main source of irrigation. This river is also famous due to its delicious fish Trout. In this area only peas, potato and maize are sown in summer. Fruits like apple, pear, plum and peach are grown. They are of very good quality.
Our next destination was Shogran. Greenery was softer and soothing in form of more vast patches of grass. Meadows looked decorated with tiny colorful wild flowers. Cattle were busy in grazing grass. A silence and peace was reigning all over the environment. Hazara University is situated in the midst of Mansehra.
