Sir the travelling is not much difficult. Routes are usually open and clear from june-oct. To visit saifulmalook lake,lalazar and lulusar lake main stay should be at Naran. You can derive your car easily upto Naran. From there you can hire jeeps for all three sites mentioned above. One day for sailfulmalook and return to Naran then next day from Naran to lalazar and then lulusar lake and back to Naran. Then on return you can derive your car easily to Kawai. From Kewai to Shogran it is possible to derive upto Shogran but its a steep and difficult better to hire jeep. From Shogran to siri and paye all jeep travel. From paye to makra peak and back to paye all is hiking of 6-7 hrs.

The roads condtions from islmabad,mansehra,balakot,kewaia and naran are in good conditions excepts few patches of land sliding areas.

There are many more worth seeing like ansoo lake, babu sar top, dodi patsar etc but not yet visited and not know the details too.

Travel time from Lahore to Naran was 11-12 hrs. From Islamabad to Naran it would took approximately 7-8 hrs.

I completely agree with Rafique sb. The roads over there were very clear and the some were being repaired for the upcoming season. Two times there is a need to take the jeep from shogran to siri paya and to saif ul malook and lalazar from Naran. As for the Ansoo lake it is very difficult because you have to hire nomadic animals for travel or travel all by yourself to there.

Beutiful pics rafique sb. Ansu lake is a tough trekking route and one needs to be physically very fit to go there. Company of locals is essential. Sharan valley in the foothills of Musa ka Musallah is anther great place overlooked by many. The route goes from Kiwai, across Kunhar river and is a black top up to sharan resthouse. A very serine place. Thanks a lot for sharing the pics.
