A Hidden Gem – Saral Lake Neelum Valley

Saral Lake Neelum Valley is located in Beautiful Azad Kashmir of Pakistan at an altitude of 13,600 m (4,100 m). It’s attractive, it’s lovely, it’s attractive. The first view of the valley from Saral Pass (1,400 meters) was breathtaking and amazing! Descending from the Saral summit to an uninhabited and untouched valley until the lake is refreshed. 

As you approach the lake, it began to grow both physically and figuratively. As the mind was busy exploring the beauty and desert of the lake, the thought of crossing the Jabba-Gali Pass up and down (the mountain behind the lake) the next day made us shudder. Happiness, Expectation, Fear, Almost many different emotions were beyond our control, but walking in nature is about exploring / reviving these amazing emotions!

Saral and Dudipatsar Lake at One Go:

It will take around 2 hours from Dudipastar Lake to Saral Pass and 2.5 additional hours to the Saral Lake Neelum Valley.

Reach Jalkhand hired potters and jokes from there to Lalian ki basti. Night camp at Lalian ki basti

The journey can start at 8 AM. It is very difficult to climb to the top (the name is not clear. Some say the seral top and some say it is part of the Noori Top). After 2 to 2.5 hours you will arrive at the place where you took this photo. It is necessary to descend 2 to 3 hours to reach the lake. We cleared up on this point. He visited Saral and returned to the camps around 7:30.

That’s it if you want to go to Lake and you can come back the same way but in our system we have Lake Dudipatsar too.

We have embarked on our journey towards Dudipatsar Lake to Saral Lake and the climb you need on Saral Pass can go downhill and technically down Lulusar and Dudipatsar National Park. We walk to the lake at 12 o’clock to visit the lake and then return to Mula ki basti about 4 km from Lake Dudipatsar.

Walk from Mulla Basti to a distance of about 12km for the most trek across the prairies but in the end there are ups and downs. And this season as the glaciers are melting so you have to cross the Purbinar stream from two places. The potters helped us to easily fall into that trap. Check the weather and season before visiting this place.
