Why miss the fun of Trekking in Neelum Valley
Neelam Valley offers quite a bit of trekking and hiking…
The journey of trekking begins from trekking down the Kel, cross the river on a bridge, and finally climb to the mountain of Arang Kel, onto which the Village of Arang Kel is located.
This village is over the altitude of 8300 feet, above sea level.
Don't want to trek? No worries
To facilitate the tourists, a chairlift service operates from Kel, which will take you three quarters up to ArangKel.
The Chairlift is a unique experience of having one’s legs dangling in the air.
Kind of similar to enjoying waves striking just at the ankles at the beach. However, here you experience light breezes instead.
It is a live bird-eye view seeing the tips of the tall trees and sitting alongside your friend or loved one as you soar across the sky like Aladdin on your not so magical carpet…
Of pure joy indeed!
