The Palas Valley in Kohistan

Truly one of the most beautiful valley in Pakistan. Its undisturbed and pristine forests have make it Far more beautiful than its neighboring valleys where deforestation and tourism has ruined the natural beauty. The valley of beautiful meadows and flowers, One of the last remained beautiful valleys of Himalayas in south Asia.
Let us do something to save this valley this is the last Saved beautiful valley of Himalayas in Pakistan after 3 other beautiful valleys (namely Kaghan, Swat and Neelum) have been partially ruined by deforestation.( Although upper Neelum valley is still Pristine to some extent but Swat and kaghan valleys have been badly damaged by deforestation).
Have a beautiful view of it.

Note: This area is very rich in Mammals and birds species due to its undisturbed nature fortunately WWF has recognized the importance of these Himalayan Forests and probably will do something to protect this i hope so in the coming years. The quality of the picture is not like digital cameras due to the usage of an old camera. The valley is far more beautiful than picture.

  3. Actuallly this is all well inside the borders of Pakistan, but wherever it is, the beauty belongs to all of the people of Earth equally. A beutiful reminder of God. Thanks to whomever took such amazing pics, I have this bookmarked for my office computer. I can day dream I'm in a lush peacefull valley having chai, instead of billing legal hours for the partners.

  4. Well, I have visited most of these areas............It is like heaved on the earth.....Pakistan is really really God gifted......The scenery is absolutely stunning.......J'adore ├ža.......

  5. Hi, God Blesspakistan and northren areas of pakistan, wish u good luck

  6. awesome thanks for sharing....

  7. I have been on most of these places..........without any exaggeration this is......... Heavens on Earth.........I wish i could visit it every year.......I have been to some other wild parts of the world but guess what.........No match to the Virgin n natural beauty of Pakistan!

  8. I really want to go on these places. these are amazing, lovely, awsom and many more

  9. Pakistan govt can project its tourism industry by introducing a new PTV(tourism) channel that may only promote Pakistani tourism and culture . Besides such a wonderful piece of earth in Pakistan,it is also blessed with great archaeological sites like Harrapa and MoenJoDaro.
    Pakistan can efface the menace of terrorism that it faces nowadays by projecting soft image of its culture, civilization and breathe taking scenaries in its geography..
    it is a matter of fact that Pakistan has suffered a lot in all the fields because of terrorism and extremism on its soil which is so depressing. But we hope that these times of testing moments will subside and Pakistan will reemerge as once a land of the pure.INSHA ALLAH..

  10. These places are so beautiful. I think the heaven lies in the valleys of Pakistan.
