Palas Valley – A Gem of Hazara Division


Palas valley is a magnificent place, blessed with thick forests, twinkling lakes and lush green meadows. Palas is a Tehsil (sub division) in Kolai-Palas district in Hazara Division. The meadows of Ledi, Morro and Palas belong to the tribes of Palas valley and Allai valley. Allai valley is in the East of the Palas valley.

The route to the valley starts from Besham, Mansehra. After 15 minute travelling, you can reach Dobair Bazar, a settlement alongside KKH. Going 25 kilometres further you will reach to Pattan village. By crossing a bridge over Indus River, you will find a jeep track leading to meadows of Morro, Palas valley and Ledi.

The track leads to Lower Palas valley is rough yet accessible by a 4-wheel drive. To approach the Upper valley, there is a trekking route. Luckily locals are cooperative enough to guide you towards shortcuts.

Ledi is located in Upper valley which is par from excellence in its beauty. While route towards Morro is a bit lengthy. You can travel via Jeep up to Barparo or Barshawl. From there upon, trekking has been started through thick forests, leading to Morro meadows.

Palas is rich in natural resources like forests, lakes and waterfalls. Khanna Sar series (three lakes) and Shaitanghat are prominent lakes of the valley. Baila waterfall has a magnificent and mesmerising view.

The valley of Palas is a hub of wildlife. There are about 230 species of birds including Western horned tragopan, Khalij, Koklass, Himalayan monal and Cheer Pheasent. You can find Persian Leopard, Himalayan Black Bear, Red Fox Himalayan Goral, Himalayan Musk Deer and Wild Boar as well. A national park, 3 wildlife sanctuaries and 5 game reservoirs have been set-up for the protection of wildlife.

The people of the valley strictly follow their customs, values and traditions. Women remain mainly at home and they don’t like to mix-up with gents. Beware of confronting their social norms. Don’t take pictures without their consent, or even point camera towards their villages, it would cost you heavily.

There are no accommodation facilities available there in Palas Valley, so make proper arrangements before visiting the valley.To preserve nature and landscape for environmental protection, refrain from littering.
