Almost Heaven-Daily Prompt-Vacations

Posted on Updated on

How placid they stand!

It was around three years or so ago, that my family planned to go to the northern areas of Pakistan, to have some fun and get a break from typically hot summers of the southern part, in which we reside. It was a very thrilling experience, with all those beautiful and majestic snowcapped mountains, passing through huge glacier and those highly dangerous (often I would just refuse to look out of the jeep we travelled in) tortuous roads, and many waterfalls. However, it was all worth it totally, because I can’t ever forget that precious vacation.

The beautiful view from our little wooden cottage
A beautiful and majestic hotel near the flowing water
The beautiful view at LALA ZAR

Mind you, the way to LALAZAR is so, that it seemed as if two wheels of the jeep were on the road and the other two were in air.So narrow was the road!!!! And imagine, that road was a two way road! 😛

Melting Glaciers

The waterfall number 1
An absolutely breath taking water fall, and a very difficult capture, as it appeared just out of the blue! Waterfall number 2!!!!
How totally strong 😀

    Stunning scenery! It’s a shame — living in the US, we only hear about Pakistan in the context of conflict; I loved seeing some of the beauty there, and just reading about a happy family vacation. Thanks for this! 🙂

      I know and it’s a shame really, because the northern parts are just so peaceful and beautiful, Do come and visit our country 😀 I am sure you will have a lot of fun with both the scenery and the cuisine!

C'mon, what do you think?
