Lake Saiful Maluk

Posted on at

A trip to Kaghan Valley is incomplete without a visit to legendary Lake Saiful Maluk. The lake is named after prince Saif-ul-Maluk who fell in love here with a fairy from the mountains.

It is 9 km away from Naran situated at a height of 10,500 feet from sea level. Take a Jeep from Naran. It takes almost an hour from Naran to Saif-ul-Maluk. Do bargain with the Jeep driver. Also you can share Jeeps with other fellow travelers to cut the cost.

Lake is surrounded by impressive snow clad mountains and crowned by the summit / peak of the Malika Parbat (Queen of the Mountains). On a clear day its pointed peak is mirrored in the deep blue waters of the lake. Words can not describe the beauty of the scenery. The crystalline water of Saiful Maluk reflecting the surrounding snow covered mountains is an image that must be seen in person.
