A wonderful excursion from Shogran is a visit to Sari Paya. From Shogran a road climbs through thick pine forest to the top of Paya ridge, a lush green meadow with spectacular view of Malika Parbat. View of Makra Top is also picturesque. Trekkers can also hike to Makra Top, which is around 2500 feet high from there.
Note: In local language of Kaghan Sari means small lake or pond. For example Lulu Sar (Lulu lake) & Dudipat Sar (Dudipat Lake). Similarly Paya means High grazing ground. They are not "Siri Payee" which means "Head & feet of cattle".
