Swat the land of magnificent scenic beauty and rich historical places. Its lush green fertile valleys, towering mountains, rushing streams, ice cold lakes, fruit orchids and flowers – filled slopes are some of the gifts nature has bestowed upon this ancient land. It is said that the Swat was filled with fourteen hundred imposing and beautiful stupas and monasteries, which housed as many as 6,000 gold images of the Buddhist pantheon for worship and education. Miandam is a hill station located 55 km from Mingora the capital of Swat Valley. Its economy focuses on skiing tourism and agriculture. While the agriculture was mostly centered on corn and potatoes. The town is the site of a World Wide Fund for Nature project promoting sustainable harvesting of medicinal plants, and now about 1,000 people are dependent on the medicinal plant trade for their entire income. The metaled road passes small villages stacked up the hillside, the roofs of one row of houses forming the street for the row of houses above. Tiny terraced fields march up the hillside right to the top. Miandam is a good place for walkers. Paths follow the stream, past houses with behives set into the walls and good-luck charms whitewashed around the doors. In the graveyards are carved wooden grave posts with floral designs, like those used by Buddhists 1,000 years ago. Kalam is known for its waterfalls, lakes and lush green hills, and is a 270 km drive from Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. It is a popular destination for tourists. At 29 kilometers (18 miles) from Bahrain and about 2,000 meters (6,600 feet) above sea level, the valley opens out, providing rooms for a small but fertile plateau above the river.[1] In Kalam the Ushu and Utrot rivers join to form the Swat River. Here, the metalled road ends and shingle road leads to the Ushu and Utrot valleys. From Matiltan some snow-capped mountains are visible including Mount Falaksir 5,918 meters (19,416 feet), and another unnamed peak 6,096 meters (20,000 feet) high. Usho is a hill station in Usho Valley, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is situated 8 kilometers from Kalam at the height of 2,300 metres (7,550 feet). It is accessible through a nonmetallic road from Kalam by jeeps only. Usho is famous for its beautiful cloudy and rainy forest. The famous tourist attraction Mahodand lake is located 27 kilometers from there. Mahudand Lake is about 40 km from Kalam, in the Usho Valley of Swat District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. It is accessible with a four-wheel drive vehicle, and is a good location for fishing. -No of Days: 4 -Weather Condition: Moderate to Cold -Snow fall: Not-Expected -Level: Easy / Beginners -Details of Plan Day1 (21st May, 2015) • 07:30 AM Departure from Islamabad . • Tea Stop / Refreshment on way. • Lunch at Fizza Gat / Mingora, Swat • Sightseeing, Dinner, Bonfire & Overnight stay at hotel in Miandam.
