Sharan Forest, the mysterious beauty of Pakistan, grabs your attention from its throat and holds it still. Then, finally, your vision consumes and internalizes the beauty your eyes just spotted. Nature attracts everyone to its undeniable beauty. One uses the term “undeniable” because there is no human out there who would not feel attracted to nature. Some people do not claim their love for nature openly. But even those folks admire it silently when they stop by to observe. Amidst the Naran Valley, bordering the Manshi Top in KPK, Sharan Forest dedicates most of its plantation to vegetation.
If you have visited Naran Valley, it is important to note that Sharan Forest categorizes itself differently. It will not present you with similar travelling, hoteling, and food facilities compared to Naran Valley. Sharan Forest offers you a variety of unfaded natural beauty, dense with overgrown plants. A bunch of locals encourage you with their camping details and ideas. They will lead the way to the campground upon reaching out for suggestions. Moving on into the woods, you will see woodland, attractive little cottages, and tourism company offices. An ideally populated space you would come across.
Befitting Routes & Best Attractions:
Let’s start from the very start; “which transport to pick”? If you do not already know about these two, Faisal Movers & Daewoo Bus Terminal are the best options. These buses are ruling the country nationwide. Almost every earner in Pakistan will prefer the smooth travelling experience of these transports. Especially, the people of Lahore & Islamabad would pick one of the transports above.
Solo travel adventures are trending in the age of modern tourism. Follow the easiest route if you want to go alone on a car or bike. Begin your journey from the Motorway and reach Abbottabad to head towards Mansehra. Keep a proper track of the weather forecast before you set off to hit the road. Keeping an eye on the weather forecast helps us to keep our journey weather-friendly. The next point should be Balakot and then Kiwayi. This might be tiresome, but the hassle would be worth the tassel. You would admire your efforts on the second last stop, Paras. At last, Sharan Forest, your dream destination, would open its arms to welcome you. Once you are there, do not plan your departure until you would have absorbed enough from the enlisted below:

Kilometres, Miles; Vehicles & Pods:
Spellbound in nature’s beautiful greenery and wonders, we occasionally feel lost. Our love for serene views encourages us to find the best ways of discovering naturally attractive places. The jeep is a recommended conveyance to discover Sharan Forest in the best way possible. Paras is the last stop of your journey with no vehicle specifications. From there onwards, on a 16 KM jeep track, a jeep would be mandatory. Because no other vehicle would withstand the jolts of that road towards your final destination i.e. Sharan Forest. A jeep on the jeep track would make you all set to head on.
