The majestic bow shaped Neelum Valley covered with thick, dense forest is one of the most favorite spots for tourists in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. The valley is named after the breathtaking Neelum river which wanders through the length of the valley. There are giant snow-covered peaks of about 4000 meters (13,000 ft) above sea level to leave you startled, separating the region from the Kaghan Valley which runs parallel to it. Neelum Valley is situated in the north-east of Muzaffarabad and is connected by Neelum road which leads up to Kel , a beautiful small village in Azad Kashmir. From there, you head towards Arang Kel, a small lush green village and another famous tourist spot in the Neelum Valley which is accessible by 2 km trek from Kel. The scenic beauty of this region is no less than a glimpse of heaven on earth. Where the days are about green meadows, the nights are equally astounding, full of stars beaming high in the sky against a black backdrop.
Fall in love with nature with a magnificent trip to the Ratti Gali lake, an alpine glacial lake located in Neelum Valley at an altitude of 12,130 feet (3,700 m). The lake is fed by the surrounding glacier waters of the mountains. Lastly, a trip to the fascinating Taobat region will leave a mark on your travel diary with its astounding beauty surrounded with giant mountains. This region is last station of Neelum Valley and end point of Pakistan beauty in Kashmir.
