Post by Javed Hasan » August 19th, 2015, 1:06 am

Soan Sakesar valley is part of the Salt range.Highest peak of the Salt range i,e Sakesar top marks the western end of this green valley. Two big Lakes namely Khabeki and Uchhali lakes make a visi to this valley worthwhile. The native village of writer and poet Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi is located on the northern bank of Uchhali Lake.
