3- Jahaz Banda

Jahaz Banda is the best and most beautiful place. It is the most visited area of Kumrat Valley.  For some time, the beauty of its green meadows was getting dim due to the construction of the hotel’s orderless. The evening at the Jahaz Banda presents a romantic and splendid environment. It is an unbelievable and unforgettable point. Due to the cold weather, you can arrange a bonfire here. People love to reach here by hiking and enjoy the beauty of nature. There are snow-cold-covered mountains. These splendid scenes are available very rarely. God has created some sceneries for some selected people only. Most of people don’t know when an encamped guy leaves his camp early in the morning, and what a scene he sees there, only he or his God knows that the scenes are only for him at that particular moment. And you will feel special and impressed at this point in Kumrat Valley. If you are a camping lover this place is especially for you. There are two most beautiful and admiring points to visit in Jahaz Banda. These are:

Jahaz Banda Waterfalls

Jahaz Banda Waterfalls is a beautiful point in Kumrat KPK where the water flows with its full excitement.  It is famous for its height and waterfalls. Its water-flowing noise has listened near the area.  You can reach the waterfall after a short hike. It was a slightly dangerous hike. It attracts tourists towards it and left and long-lasting impression on their memories. I suggest coming and staying at this spot if you are seeing the area.

Jahaz Banda Meadows

Jahaz Banda Meadows is a very vast ground in Kumrat Valley. It is situated at the height of 3100 meters above sea level. There are also many tall trees. The mountains near it were covered with the cold. It is a very beautiful point in Kumrat. It is highly recommended to you for visit. It could have been much scarier in rain. But honestly, you will find this place to be more fascinating than the top side of Jahaz Banda. Much more peaceful. I recommend coming and staying at this place if you are visiting the area.

4- Katora Lake

Katora lake is situated at Kumrat Valley near Jahaz Banda Meadows. It is situated at a height of 11500 meters above sea level. It is the most beautiful lake in Kumrat. The water in this lake is coming from the glaciers melting that were situated around it. Katora means a bowl. And this lake is called Katora because its shape looks like a bowl. There is also a waterfall at this point. You should wear full sleeves shirt during hiking its trek. This location, in my opinion, is more interesting than the upper side of Jahaz Banda. Much more restful. If you’re in the Kumrat Valley Location, I recommend visiting by and staying here. You will definitely fall in love with its splendid scenes and beauty.

5- Dojanga

Dojanga is the last point of Kumrat Valley. It is also the most interesting and beautiful point in Kumrat. There are two river flows and get-together at this point. It is the reason behind it is called Dojanga. There is also a dense green forest. There are many animals in this forest. There are also many caves in this area. The water of the river flows very fast here so do not try to swim in this river because it could be dangerous. There are many Markhor. Markhor is a national animal of Pakistan. They hide themselves because of tourists.  It is the most adventurous place that you can explore with your friends. It is also the most visiting point of Kumrat Valley, Khayber Pakhtun Khuwa. I also recommend you to visit this spot also.

First, you get a ticket for Islamabad from Lahore then you reach the m2 motorway. After reaching Islamabad you move m1 from m2. While traveling you can see the beautiful high mountains on one side and the other side you can see the deep downriver.  From Sher khan interchange you will enter swat express. While reaching the upper Dir you can see the door of Kumrat which is known as the BABE KUMRAT. Now while entering the door of Kumrat you reach the Partraak. After reaching the Partraak point the road condition became worst.

There is one hotel named Hotel Green Hill for stay. It is located in the main rod running through Thall Bazar.

How to get from Thal to Kumrat

To get from Thall to Kumrat you need to get a jeep with a driver you cost for a jeep almost 2000 to 4000. It will take most probably 2 to 3 hours through the narrow valley to the point where the beautiful mountains open and wide again. During traveling you will pass through an army checkpoint.

Where We Stay in Kumrat Valley

If we talk about the Murree Hotels than murree is much costly than Kumrat. After 2 to 3 h you reached the Kumrat valley. This is the most beautiful and attractive place in Pakistan. Now can check the Kumrat Valley Hotels. After reaching your destination point you have to buy a tent camp or container for your stay. And you have to pay for a tent or container. You can get a tent at similar rates as compared to the container. The container is costly for us. Here you will only find one tuck shop. So it is better that you have to bring your food and snacks items. There is no electricity, no mobile and internet service required. At nights there is only one light outside the camps. The security guard stays the whole night for the safety of the camps where the people stayed. The guard fires a gun after every one hour just to stay away from the lions and any other animal.
