Neelum-valley

You might be familiar with a very famous song out of a Bollywood blockbuster Veer Zaara;

Lehrati hui raahen, kholay huay hain baahain

Yeh hum aa gaye hain kahan

Palkon pay gheray halkay, hain reshmi dhundhalkay

Yeh hum aa gaye hain kahan

The winding roads beckon us, where we have come to?

Eyes are shaded with dreams, where we have come to? 

This is the feeling you instantly get when you see the prolific scenery of Neelum Valley, the most exuberant of all Azad Kashmir, for the first time. These couplets can hardly make up for the crisp you taste when the first burst of a gentle breeze touches your face. 

Neelum Valley, often written as Neelam is located in the northernmost corner of the Neelum District, which is one of the 10 districts that make up the beautiful land of Azad Kashmir. The valley is often quoted to be the “Paradise of Kashmir”, a totally just title that can best explain what the valley looks and feels like. 

Neelum Valley runs parallel to the Kaghan Valley and the only thing that separates both the valleys are the snow-covered majestic mountains, some of which are located 4,000 meters above sea level. 

The Neelum, before the partition used to be Kishanganga, which was later on changed to Neelum for the village of Neelum. The Neelum Valley is around 144 km long and spreads across both sides of the Line of Control (LOC) between Pakistan and India.
