    I am from this area, this canal is not constructed by the British, it is constructed recently, the main tunnel through which the water flow out of mountain is constructed by the British. A hydro power plant was constructed by the british which was upgraded recently by 81 Mega watt.

    It is the place where Churchill serve the two districts, from this place one can control the Distt Dir, and District Swat, Malakand Agency is also adjacent here, in fact you have taken the picture of DIR standing in Malakand Agency.

    He wrote hundred plus books in his life, his first book was "the People of Malakand", and one of the book is "The Malakand field force" you can find the books on amazon.com

    The road to Kalam is under construction, as it was completely destroyed by the flood of 2010.

    you created an excellent thread.
    And shared beautifully taken pictures of scenes around you.

    I want to know one thing. Is road to sawat very scenic?
    And this is reminding me of a film with the name of 'road to sawat' which I saw when i was a kid

    Thanks brother Horse_rider.
    It was nice that u elaborated the randomly taken pics. we had to complete the trip in 2 and half days. So most of the pics are taken while sitting on the bike. There was actually no time to stop inquire and note down the details of the locations where we took pics.

    and also after 3 months most minute details are forgotten or intermingled.

    I Have not seen the movie. But now i will try to find it. The road to swat is scenic. As compared with other beautiful valleys it offers more places to visit. It is more populated and the scenery gets beautiful as you move ahead. However in the case of Kaghan & Naran when you travel farther mountains start to get barren and houses and population scarce.

    I want to share it is really nice that once you are in the heat of travelling a single glass of fresh cold water gives such pleasure that the ones who has not gone through this, cant imagine.
    And this was a very good and well set cold drinks shop, with a variety of drinks available. SEEMED like were in middle of Lahore or Gujranwala.
