Shogran

About 23km from Balakot is the roadside town of Kawai from where a road leads uphill to the meadows and the green plateau of Shogran (2,362 meters / 7,749). Shogran is surrounded by pine forests and greenery. In winters this area becomes inaccessible due to heavy snow. There are a number of good hotels and one can hire jeep or horses or even hike further up the mountains to other picturesque places like Sari and then beyond on to Paya and Makra Peak.
