Without visiting legendary Lake Saiful Muluk visit to Kaghan valley is incomplete. The lake is named after Prince Saiful Muluk, who fell in love with a fairy from the mountains. This enchanting crystal clear water lake is located at the height of 10,500 feet and is surrounded by remarkable snow dressed gigantic mountains and surmounted by the peak of Malika Parbat. The grand Malika Parbat has a height of 5291 meters so it is the highest peak in Kaghan Valley, for this reason, this is called “Queen of the Mountains”.
Naran is located at the height of 7,888 feet above sea level and 82 kilometers away from Balakot. Naran is the main centre of attraction for tourists in the Kaghan Valley.

Siri Paye is a wonderful destination to visit. To see a striking view of the lush green meadow with Malika Parbat take a route of a rugged eight-kilometer road to climb 2300 feet through thick pine forest to reach the top of Paya point.
