DESCRIPTION OF SIGNIFICANT AREAS:
The marvelous lush green Swat Valley is a charming place in northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, which is a popular tourist destination. During the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in the 1960s, she named this natural masterpiece, “Switzerland of the East”. With high mountains, green meadows, and clear lakes, it is a place of great natural beauty and is popular in tourists.
The Valley of Swat is delineated by natural geographic boundaries and is centered on the Swat River, whose headwaters rise in the 18,000-19,000 foot tall Hindu Kush. The valley is enclosed on all sides by mountains and is intersected by glens and ravines. Above mountains ridges to the west is the valley of the Panjkora River, to the north the Gilgit Valley, and Indus River gorges to the east. To the south, across a series of low mountains, lies the wide Peshawar valley.The northernmost area of Swat district is the high valleys and alpine meadows of Swat Kohistan, a region where numerous glaciers feed the Ushu, and Gabral rivers (also known as the Utrar River), which form a confluence at Kalam, and thereafter forms the Swat river – which forms the spine of the Swat Valley and district. Swat then is characterized by thick forests along the narrow gorges of the Kalam Valley until the city of Madyan. From there, the river courses gently for 160 km through the wider Yousufzai Plains of the lower Swat Valley until Chakdara.
The enchanted, and calmed Kalam valley is located along the bank of Swat River at a distance of 99 km from Mingora in the northern upper reaches of Swat valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The area has become a popular tourist attraction, due to its natural abundant valuable gifts, it hosts lofty mountains, serene forests, and blue water tranquil lakes. It is the birthplace of the Swat River, which forms with the confluence of two major tributaries of Gabriel River and Ushu River. It is a sub-valley of Swat, at an elevation of about 2000 m. It provides room for a small but fertile plateau above the river for farming. From Kalam, the metaled road ends and a single road leads to the Ushio and Error valleys. From Milton, the view of magnificent snow-capped mountains is breathtaking, including Mount Falaksar 5918 m.
The unruffled organic natural beauty with archeological significant places serves as district headquarters of Lower Dir District in Pakistan. It is located on the east bank of the Panjkora River at an altitude of 823 m. The town is the site of excavated graves of Indo-Aryans, dating from 1500 to 600 BC. On the west side of the Panjkora River is the excavated site of Balambat. The site has been occupied continuously since the time of the Indo-Aryans in 1500 BC. Discoveries included houses dating from 500 BC and fire altars, showing that the people followed early Vedic Hinduism which revolved around fire worshipping. The area’s early political history is defined by the control of the Hindu Shahis, artifacts and ruins from the period are found throughout the region. Most of the main city lies on the bank of the river Panjkora, which separates Balambat from the main city. Thus, this distinctive region serves as a heaven for archaeologists.
