Lake Saif ul Malook – Naran

Saiful Muluk is an uneven lake situated at the northern finish of the Kaghan Valley, close to the town of Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa area, Pakistan and feeds water to Kunhar waterway. At a rise of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above ocean level, it is well over the tree line, and is perhaps the most elevated lake in Pakistan.

Location:
Saiful Muluk is situated in the Mansehra area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, around eight kilometers north of Naran, in the northern piece of Kaghan valley. Malika Parbat, the most elevated top in the valley is close to the lake. The lake is available from the close by town of Naran throughout the mid year season however access during winter is constrained.

Physical features:
Saiful Muluk was framed by icy moraines that obstructed the water of the stream going through the valley. The Kaghan Valley was framed in the more prominent Pleistocene Period going back right around 300,000 years when the region was secured with ice. Rising temperatures and retreating ice sheets left a huge sorrow where icy masses once stood. Liquefying water gathered into the lake.

Ecology:
The lake has rich eco-assorted variety and holds numerous types of blue green growth. Huge dark colored trout are found in the lake, up to around seven kilograms. Around 26 types of vascular plant exist in the region, with Asteraceae the most generally discovered specie. Different species usually found in the area are: Ranunculaceae, Compositae, Cruciferae, Gramineae, Apiaceae, Leguminosae, Scrophulariaceae and Polygonaceae.

Folklore:
A fantasy called Saif-ul-Muluk, composed by the Sufi writer Mian Muhammad Bakhsh, discusses the lake. It recounts to the tale of the sovereign of Persia named Shahzada Saif Ul Malook who experienced passionate feelings for a pixie princess named Shehzadi Badri Jamala at the lake.
