Yes i have been to lalazar in kaghan. I climbed up and down saif ul malook on my feet ;). Also visited lulusar lake. That was in 2005 i think. But photography and gardening interest was not developed that time. I started both things in 2009.

I tried to go to aansu jheel from jheel saifulmalook ... 3 hours later I was thinking this could be last day of my life. :mrgreen:

Nathiagali to Mushkpuri & Nathiagali to Miranjani treks are full of wild flowers specially daisies.
Nathiagali to Mushkpuri, 4 kilometer track very easy one, takes two hours
Nathiagali to Miranjani, 8 kilometer track require some stamina, takes 3 to 4 hours. Start early morning so you can return Nathiagali before sunset.
You can also hire Horses for both treks; visit of Murree is not completed without doing these treks
Bhurban 14 Km from Murree, PC hotel at Bhurban have a wonderful garden. They have entry fee about Rs.400 these days but don’t miss it. This amount can be used in restaurants and coffee shop.
Kala Bagh (near ayubia) and Khanus Pur (on walking distance from Nathiagali) are also some picturesque points.
