This is a travel guide about the Top 7 Best Places to Visit in Naran Kaghan. Naran and Kaghan are two different valleys close to each other. The distance from Islamabad is about 240 km, located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Pakistan. Thousands of tourists from Pakistan as well as all over the world each year come to explore Naran and Kaghan Valley’s beauty and enjoy their best time here.

The main tourist attractions of Naran Kaghan Valleys are:

The best destinations to stay at night are Shorgan and Naran. I visited Naran in September 2020 during my trip to Khunjerab (China border) solo bike ride. I found some rude people and had a scam in Naran. But, all people are not bad.

If you are a solo traveller, you will find a room for Rs 500 ($ 3.20) but the conditions are not good. The room is just so so to just spend a night (arrive late and go early). There are various kinds of hotels for families, for solo travellers, etc. Naran nightlife is beautiful.

You can also get a Jeep ride to Siri Paye, Saif ul Malook Lake, Shorgan, Kaghan, and Naran visiting tours and horse riding.


Shorgan is located 30 kilometres from Balakot. It is known for its rich greenery, pine forests and panoramic views. Shorgan weather continues pleasantly in summer but winter is too cold. The temperature remains about 18 degrees Celsius. Budget and luxury hotels are also available in Shorgan.

The altitude of Shorgan is 7,749 ft (2,362 m) and you can get an amazing view of the entire valley. Tourists like to relax in a relaxed environment and experience a cup of hot coffee or tea in cold weather.

Siri Paye Meadows

Siri Paye Meadows is a green landscape covered with clouds and lush scenery of snow-covered mountains. If you are going to visit Shorgan, then must visit Siri Paye Meadows which also has a small Lake called Siri Lake. The road conditions from Shorgan to Siri Paye Meadows are not very good, but this meadow attraction is well worth visiting.


Kaghan Valley is located before Naran Valley. No major tourist attractions are in Kaghan Valley except Lalazaar. But, this is a famous tourist attraction for families. You can also find a small market along the Naran road N-15.


Naran is a small town or city, 240 km from Islamabad and 120 km from Mansehra city. A giant glacier welcomes you to Naran while entering. The Naran Valley is situated along the Kunhar River and the stream of Saif ul Malook Lake. Naran Kaghan is a famous tourist attraction in Pakistan.

Naran welcomes about one hundred thousand (1 Lac) people from Pakistan each year from mid-June to mid-November.

Pakistan Tourism Department Corporation (PTDC) Naran Hotel is located in Naran too. Budget and Luxury hotels are also available in Naran.

Babusar Top

Babusar Top is 70 km away from Naran Valley towards the north on the N-15 highway. The altitude of Babusar Top is 13,700 ft (4,175 m). I visited Babusar Top in September 2020 on my trip to Khunjerab on a solo bike ride. It is the highest point of Naran Kaghan valley. Babusar Pass or Bausar Top is famous for its beautiful views, cold weather, and the chilled wind of the valley.

I stayed a night at Naran and the rent of the room was Rs 500. There is no hot water. The water is too cold to even wash your hands. But, in September 2020, Naran weather was too cold and the first snowfall happened.

Lulusar Lake

Lulusar Lake is a small lake at Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park. It is the most famous tourist spot in the Naran Valley after Saif ul Malook and Babusar Top. Its altitude is 11,187 ft (3,410 m) above sea level. Lulusar Lake is a clean, freshwater lake.

How to get to Lulusar Lake?

You can get a jeed ride from Naran. Lulusar Lake is 48 km from Naran by jeep ride. But, a jeep ride will be expensive if you are a solo traveller like me. You can do some activities at Lulusar Lake like hiking, trekking, fishing, rafting and boating.
