This was the reward that awaited me after completing a gruelling, nerve wrecking, absolutely spirit shattering 7km hike to a height of nearly 10,500 feet. This was on the descent from the mountains seen in the background in the remote area of Northern Pakistan known as the Kaghan Valley. Here, in the town of Naran, is the entrance to the popular Saif Ul Malook lake, situated behind the mountains you see on the top.
When we got to the lake, it was snowing and the lake was practically frozen. Disheartened, on the way back I found this opening between the rocks where this stream was gushing forth, forming part of the Kunhar River that cuts through the valley for over a 100km.
