Azad Kashmir is one of the most beautiful regions in Pakistan. Blessed with breath-taking natural beauty, this region can be a haven for all those who like to get lost in the wild and get close to the beauty that nature has to offer. Let us acquaint you with some of the best holiday spots that AJK has to offer.
This is one of the most stunning as well as most revered locations in the region. Pir Chinasi is basically a hill top that offers idyllic views of the surrounding valleys while at the same time being home to the shrine of a revered saint, Hazrat Shah Hussain Bukhari. Pir Chinasi has on offer lush green fields as well as fresh water streams, making it an ideal picnic spot for tourists. We would advise all readers to make the trip to Pir Chinasi and camp there for at least one day. Lying beneath the sky full of stars will surely be one of the most amazing experiences of your life.
If we called it the meadow from heaven, we wouldn’t be wrong. Thronged every summer by thousands of tourists, the valley is famed for the spectacular view of the surrounding snow-covered peaks as well as the beautiful pine trees that just add to the beauty of the valley itself.
This picturesque village is another-must visit place in Azad Kashmir. The village is great if you intend to get some insight into the lives of the locals and truly experience the quaint rural life of the region.
By far the largest valley in Azad Kashmir is Neelum Valley. An absolute favorite among the tourists and it is not difficult to see why. The beautiful valley is a stunning feature due to the freshwater streams, sparsely populated hamlets, lush meadows and pine forests. Whether you are the average Pakistani belonging to the southern parts, or a passionate traveler, or even a wildlife aficionado, the Neelum valley has everything. The Neelum River flows through the valley, causing streams and water falls in many places. Wooden huts are situated far from each other, each bearing marks of their residents.
At night, the valley floor is quite except for the howling of the wolves. With a sky full of stars above your head, many tourists choose to light up a bonfire and share scary stories or sing songs. Others choose to simply lie quietly underneath the sky and reflect. One can engage in plenty of activities. One such activity would be a jeep ride. We suggest all fellow travelers to embark upon their journeys to the more remote destinations using this antiquated mode of transportation. The jeeps aren’t the most comfortable, but there is something very rugged about the vehicle that makes you enjoy the beauty of the surroundings even more. If you go to Kashmir in winters, opportunities to ski are available as well. Horse-riding is another option for the more adventurous of our friends.
Kashmir is indeed a land of beauty – we urge you to embrace the adventurist in you and go out to explore the true beauty of our land. So if you are planning a trip to this beautiful region, you can book a hotel online with TripKar and visit this beautiful paradise on Earth!
