Picturesque valley of shogran Kaghan Valley

 A truly perfect summer destination for those who love the mountains excursion.
In early June 2013, i travel to Shogran Kaghan Valley , situated in Khyber Pukhtun kwa province Pakistan. One of the most picturesque and spectacular mountain scenery, some of the most worth watching places. Excursions to Siripaya meadows, Sharan valley, Lulusar Lake and Lalazar are worth visiting.
I personally chose Shogran in Kaghan to travel around and then to Siripaya through an adventurous Jeep ride. Though i have traveled to Khunjarab Pass ( Pakistan China Border) via Gilgit and Hunza with University friends. Though it was a study tour from university equally enjoyable but travel with family is entirely a different and much more cozy and lovely experience. Shogran Kaghan is approximately 240 Km from Mardan. It took me about 5  hours drive to reach Shogran  apart from the rest timings during the way.
There are many hotels to stay comfortably. The road from Kiwai to shogran is bit damaged but still one can reach through car and any other personal vehicle but from shogran onward toSiripaya, its totally impossible to reach through car. Only jeeps can take you there to the top of siripaya , where you can view the beautiful peek of Makra top.

Here are some beautiful views of Shogran.

Here is the hotel where i stayed. Usually every hotel have hired the jeeps for their guests so we didn't needed to manage a jeep for us. Next day before leaving for mountain excursion i leave the hotel and took the jeep. I have had my humble break fast at hotel. Next about Siripaya i will share in the next post.
