Maidaan - Sharda, Neelum Valley, AJK I did two trekking routes in Sharda: 1. Started from Wadi Resort in Sharda and continued to Kishan Ghati and then climbed up to Maidaan area. Circled back to Wadi Resort in evening. 2. The second day started from Wadi Resort and climbed up on trail behind the village and continued to left with forest. Then after entering sub-valley, created my own route up in the forest and then crossed the whole forest to complete the loop till Maidaan and came back to Wadi Resort from first-day return route. . Both treks were extremely beautiful and close to nature.
Trek to Karambar Lake is a must in the bucket list of an adventure lover. Trek difficulty level is EASY but involves multiple hours trekking so prior trekking experience will be preferable. The trek is one of the most diverse treks in northern areas of Pakistan and has many entry and exit points to the lake. It is also one of the most beautiful treks. Karambar lake lies on the boundary of Broghil valley in Chitral and Ishkoman valley in Gilgit Baltistan. The easy and shortest route to Karambar lake is from Chitral side (via Mastuj, Broghil valley). It took us 11 days for the round trip from Islamabad with spending two nights at the lake.
