Naran Kaghan is a jewel among the many beautiful valleys in the Mansehra District of Hazara in the North West Frontier Province (Khyber Pakhtoon Khuah) of Pakistan. The valley extends 160 km, rising from an elevation of 2,134 feet (650 m) to its highest point, the Babusar Pass, at 13,690 feet (4,170 m). The bed of valley slopes up from 3,000 feet at Balakot, which, as it were, the gateway of the valley, to 12,000 ft at Gittidas beyond which the valley crosses at Babusar Pass. The Kunhar River, swollen by glacial melt, passes through this town as it meanders its way through the valley. The climate of Kaghan Naran is subtropical highland. There is significant rainfall in summers and heavy snowfall in winters. Even the driest month has a lot of rainfall. The average annual temperature is 10.1 °C. The region is Alpine in geography and climate, with forests and meadows dominating the landscape below peaks that reach over 17,000 feet. This valley has most popular summer holiday spots. Lofty peaks crown the mountains ranges on either side like turrets. Popular languages are Hindko and Gojri, while Urdu, Pakistan’s national language is also familiar among the locals. The road from Balakot ascends along the Kunhar River through lovely forests and the villages. You’ll find the Himalayan peaks hidden with clouds or snow, somewhere you’ll find the beautiful fairy tale lakes, which will attract you toward them, and you might decide not to leave this at any cost.
