    Default "Tour de Swat Valley"(Kalam, Ushu, Mahodand Lake, Boyun Village Malam Jabba Mingora)

    Assalam O Alaikum

    Due to Lulusar incident our Naran valley trip cancelled at last moment, & decided to visit Swat valley on EID vacations.

    We have just returned from Swat valley having 4 days trip, valley was lush green & safe to visit with family. Peoples of valley were very nice & supportive.

    This was my 1st visit to Swat valley so before visiting don?t have any info about valley but thanks to Asif Bhai, Mobeen Bhai, & Sohaib Kyani for guiding our trip to Swat. And many thanks to Shahbaz Bhai (shahbazzain) for his company, hosting & RWP ? Mingora travel arrangements.

    Due to security rumours about swat valley our group reduced to on two persons.
    On 21/Aug evening Me & my friend Rahil started our journey from Sialkot & reached RWP midnight to connect next coach for Mingora Swat & Shabaz Bhai also joined us from Rwp.

    Day 1

    Left Sialkot @ 06:30 pm
    Reached Rawalpindi @ 10:30 pm

    Day 2


    RWP-Mingora @ 120 am
    Reached Mingora @ 04:15 am
    Mingora-Kalam @ 04:30 am
    Reached Kalam @ 08:15 am

    After reaching kalam we were stunned to see that all Kalam bazaar was full of PathansJ, all Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was ther to enjoy EID vacations so it took us 2 hrs to find hotel L finally we got a room in Hotel Snow White.

    After getting refresh & having breakfast we were again ready for our next destination Mahodand Lake,

    Kalam - Mahodand Lake @ 120 pm
    Reached Mahodand @ 02:45 pm

    Lunch at Mohdand Lake

    Return to kalam @ 060 pm
    Reached Kalam @ 090 pm

    Dinner at Kalam & night stay in Hotel Snow White,

    Day 3

    We woke up early morning & gather info about Byun Village & after breakfast take a tour to Kalam Bazar.
    After getting crossed River Atror & River Ushu we were at Byun Villege track.
    We started to track @ 100 am & reached at top @ 11:30 am.

    Returned back to Kalam @ 040 pm

    We were willing to visit Kundol Lake but due to shortage of time & tough track threatens from locals we decide to came back to Mingora for Malm Jabba on next day.

    Kalam to Mingora @ 060 pm
    Reached Mingora @ 090 pm

    Dinner @ Mingora & night stay @ Shahab Hotel Mingora.

    Day 4

    Took breakfast & headed our way to Malam Jabba

    Mingora to Malam Jabba @ 090 am
    Reached Malam Jabba @ 10:30 am

    Malm Jabba ? Mingora @ 01:30 pm
    Reached Mingora @ 030 pm

    Lunch & shopping at Mingora Bazar then started our return journey.

    Mingora-RWP @ 070 pm
    Reached RWP @ 110 pm

    RWP-Sialkot @ 12:30 am
    Home Sweet Home 050 am

    Pictures will tell rest of story??.

    AFTER EVERY HOUR BUSES DEPARTS FOR MINGORA FROM RWP.

    2, And from Mingora to other places like (Kalam, Malam jabba) public transports are available till which time? and what are their fares?
    Depend on passangers, wen vehicle is full it wll go or you can hire taxi with a little higher rate than bus.

    3, Which one is the cheap travel if we want to go Usher and Utror and Gabral from Kalam, Bus or Jeep?

    bus will be cheap option in peak season like now a days but in other days difference will be marginal.



    Thanks
