Assalam o Alaikum Allz
In June 2012, We (2 members) made a short trip to Heavenly Beautiful Leepa Valley, situated in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. Thanks to pakwheels that gave us crucial information about NOC must to be obtained from DC Hattian Bala in order to visit/ enter this valley.
NOC obtaining process is not difficult & does not involve too much formalities or documentation. What you have to do is to get an application written from Munshis there (charges Rs.30/- only), paste two revenue stamps (Rs.2/- only), attach CNIC copies of all the members, & present this application to DC- who then will issue NOC after looking at original CNICs & having a small question answer session consisting of reason of visit- no of days, etc.
Details of visit, transportation, valley, & especially PICS coming in following posts (hope u'll enjoy).
