Shogran Tips (7)

Shogran - A very beautiful Plateau

Shogran is one of the most beautiful Plateaus in the valley. It is situated at a distance of 34 km from Balakot.

On the way from Balakot to Naran, there is a place called KEWAI. Take a side road on the right after passing through Kewai. From there it will take you around 30 minutes to reach Shogran. Shogran is 7 km from Kewai.

SHOGRAN is a very beautiful place. Its really worth to see it. There are a lot of hotels in Shogran. So you can stay here. People are helpful & friendly.

A wonderful Excursion from here is to visit SARI & PAYA & Makra Top. From Paya Plateau trekkers can hike to Makra Mountain.

Note: In local language of Kaghan Sari means small lake or pond. Similarly Paya means High grazing ground. They are not "Siri Payee" which means "Head & feet of cattle".

Forest Rest House, Shogran

You should not miss a trip to Forest Rest House. Most of people sit and relax in its huge lush green lawns. Entry might be restricted when senior officials visit or stay at rest house. Views of Sri Paya and Musa Da Mussalah peak are really nice from the lawns of rest house.

Shogran

Shogran is one of the most beautiful plateau in the whole area with an altitude of 7,749 feet (2,362 meters) above sea level. It is 33 km from Balakot via Kawai. Take this steep road from Kawai for Shogran. The distance is 5 miles and climb is 3,000 feet. Mighty Himalayan peaks like Musa Da Musallah 14,498 feet (4,419 m), Malka Parbat 17,156 feet (5,229 m) and Makra 15,030 feet (4,581 m) could be seen from Shogran.

Sri/Paya and Dona Meadows are most popular spots near Shogran. You can either hire a jeep or hike for around two n half hours to get these spots. Sri Paya, the most beautiful spot of Kaghan Valley, is at an altitude of 11,200 feet (3,414 m) above sea level. Its speciality is lush green meadows and beautiful lakes. For Dona Meadows you would have to cross a huge glacier and two lovely waterfalls.

For those who like adventure, Sharan could be good option. There is a track from Shogran to Sharan. Its two hours hike and you would find yourself in lush green lawns covered by thick forest. The view is simply awesome and there is beautiful forest rest house in Sharan where you may stay.

Shogran's real asset are the views it offers. The air is impregnated with the scent of flowers and the fine forests around. It is an expensive resort with limited number of hotels and facilities. The best and most expensive hotel of the area is Pine Park with per night rates between Rs. 2,875- 15,000 ( US$ 50-260 appox).

Paras & Siran Valley....

At Paras, 20 minutes north of Kawai, a rough track crosses the river and climbs 15Km to Sharan, in the middle of nowhere at 2,400m. From Here you can hike through the forest or trek overnight across beautiful Siran Valley, north of Mansehra(though a local guide can help you find the trail and avoid the occasional black bear and wild cat). The next stop is a small village of Sinhu and from there the road continues to Jared.

Malkandi Forest

8 miles on the western slopes of Kaghan is Kamalban, a heavily populated forest of black bears and leopards, which do incalculable harm to the crops and young trees. Killing a bear is a big game and you'll get reward for shooting down a bear from forest officer as well as from the peasants. Besides these you'll be able to find Muskdeer, thar and goral, Chikore and Himalayan pheasants all over the valley. And if you'll go a little higher you'll be able to find red bear, snow leopard and ibex and occasionally a snow partridge or Ram Chikore or Murgh-I-Zarrin.
