Neelum valley azad kashmir
It is a valley of fountains, springs, waterfalls, flowering trees and plants. Geographically too, it is a hospitable valley. The Neelum Valley, 90 miles long bow-shaped with majestic pine, fir and deodar trees, lies north-south of Muzaffarabad (capital). This ninety-mile long kingdom of vegetation is ripped apart by the indigo blue Neelum river which flows serpentinely down hills to merge itself into the river Jehlum at Domail. It is hard to capture the awesomeness of the Neelum Valley into words. You really need to see the place to believe it. It is a bow shaped valley spanning nearly 144 km in the Azad Kashmir region. It is located in the North East of Muzaffarabad, which is the capital of Azad Kashmir. The place has awesome scenic beauty with towering hills, noisy River Neelum and the excellent panoramic views. The enchanting streams and the lush green forests of the area create a great magical spell for the visitors. The place is about 6 hours drive from the capital city, Islamabad. The weather here is awesome in summer which is the best time to visit the place. It snows heavily here during the winter season. Some top places to sea in the area includes the Halmet, Sharda Fort, Baboon, Kutton, Jagran, Karen, Surgon, Kel and many more areas. You need to spare at least 3 to 4 days in order to explore the length and breadth of the Neelum Valley, which would actually be a trip of your lifetime.
