We took an early start from the the beautiful lake Saif-ul-Malook, where we camped overnight..We left the lake around 8- 8:30 am (well may be not that early a start)…I had heard the trek is about 5 hours long… for some reason, it had skipped my mind that 5 hours trek would mean 10 hours […]
Lake Saif-ul-Malook is a little further from Naran, in the beautiful Kaghan Valley, in the North of Pakistan.
The reflection of the tall mountains around, in the lake water is absolutely breath-taking. There are certain mysteries that are associated with this lake. The depth of this lake have not been identified yet, due to reasons unknown. Also there are constant ripples forming in the lake, throughout the area that it covers, not because of dew or rain or anything outside. It looks as if the ripples keep forming from within, as if there is an internal source to it.
The lake is of great mystical value to the Saints and sufis of various times. This lake been of mention in mystical poems and narrations too, due to its utter beauty and mythical folk-lores that people relate with it.
