Neel Fairy Meadows

Azad Kashmir is often referred to as “heaven on Earth” due to its mild and pleasant weather, which sets it apart from the rest of the world. The valleys of Kashmir include Neelum, Jhelum, and Pearl valleys. These are all popular tourist attractions in the Kashmir. However, Neel Fairy is a less visited location.

Neel Fairy Meadows is a tourist destination located in the foothills of Bedori Top. It is easily accessible from Islamabad and Muzaffarabad via a metal road. Tourists can relax in this picturesque and panoramic scenery. The mystic charm of the valley enchants the tourists. This fertile land produces almost every type of fruit, crop, dry fruit, nuts and pure honey.

The name Neel Fairy comes from the water lily, or Neelofer, which grows abundantly around the lake. The flowers are cooked as a vegetable in this area. The lake is approximately 12,000 feet above sea level. It gets its water from rain. A plethora of flowers can be seen scattered across the lush green meadows.

Significance

Muzaffarabad is nearly 200 kilometres (124 miles) away from Haveli. It was a part of District Bagh before becoming the tenth District of Kashmir in July 2009.

Neel Fairy Meadows, which covers an area of 598 square kilometres (230.89 square miles), is one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in Haveli. The district is divided into three subdivisions: Haveli, Mumtazabad and Khurshidabad. The people are brave and hardworking. Expats from the Middle East and Europe make up a sizable portion of the population. Their remittances contribute to the economy’s growth.
