During the Eid holidays, tourists flocked to the Saiful Muluk Lake after the Kaghan Development Authority cleared the road leading to it after six months.
“We’ve cut the massive glacier that was blocking the route to Saiful Muluk Lake and reopened it to traffic.” Tourists who have flocked to the valley can now visit this fantastical location,” KDA environmental inspector Muzammil Khan told journalists on Thursday.
When the Kaghan valley experienced snowfall in October of last year, the Mansehra-Naran-Jalkhad and Lake routes were closed. The MNJ route, which connects Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan, was already accessible to traffic beyond Battakundi last month, and it has now been reopened to traffic all the way to Saiful Muluk Lake.
As soon as the road was restored, travelers who had come to Kaghan valley for the Eid holidays hurried to Saiful Muluk Lake.
