Road to Saif-ul-Muluk Reopened for Tourists


The Kaghan Development Authority (KDA) has reopened the road leading to the renowned Saif-ul-Muluk Lake ahead of schedule, allowing tourists to experience the breathtaking, snow-covered landscape. This initiative was undertaken under the directive of Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Ali Amin Gandapur, and tourism advisor, Zahid Chan.

Utilizing heavy machinery, the KDA’s technical staff successfully cleared glaciers and mudslides that had obstructed the road to this popular tourist destination. This effort ensures that visitors can now access the lake by jeep, greatly enhancing their travel experience.

Saif-ul-Muluk Lake, located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley near the town of Naran, is situated within the Saiful Muluk National Park. Perched at an elevation of 3,224 meters (10,578 feet) above sea level, the lake is positioned above the tree line, making it one of the highest lakes in Pakistan. Its picturesque setting, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, attracts both local and international tourists, especially during the summer months.

With the road now reopened, the KDA anticipates an increase in tourist visits, as the lake’s unique and mesmerizing views of the snow-covered landscape are more accessible. This initiative is part of broader efforts to promote tourism in the region, showcasing the enchanting beauty of Pakistan’s natural wonders.

Tourists planning to visit the lake can anticipate a safe and enjoyable journey, thanks to the swift actions of the KDA and the support of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.
