Hike to Dagri Bangla through Miran Jani Peak in Nathiagali Kpk Pakistan

Nathiagali to Miranjani to Dagri Bangla Track. It is a 24 Km track round trip, which starts from Nathiagali, goes through Miranjani Peak which leads to a thick and quite forest which takes you to Dagri Bangla. Dagri Bangla is a camping spot and seeing the sunset there is a beautiful sight. If you live in Islamabad and love outdoors then you will love this track.


We started the track at around 12 o'clock and got to the camping site at 4.30. The hike till Miranjani is a little tough due to steep ascend. From Miranjani to Dagri its a beautiful walk in the forest with lovely landscape. If you are going to follow the track then remember to take excessive drinking water with you as it is not available on the way. Do bring all your trash back with you as there is no one there to clean it up. Enjoy the pictures from the track.

Islamabad to Ratti Gali Lake Kashmir

Ratti Gali Lake The Plan It all started with a plan(unlike most other things). The plan was to go somewhere scenic, be close to nature, break the office rut, do some short trek, enjoy the weather, the landscape and come back safe and sound. Too many wants I know but Alhumdolillah it went as planned(unlike most other things).

There were alternate options including Dudipatsar Lake and Aanso Lake. We decided to go ahead with Ratti Gali Lake. We had 3 days to spare and wanted to make every hour count. And boy we are so glad we chose Ratti Gali.
Ratti Gali in Azad Kashmir is approximately 16 hours away from Islamabad. Which depends on the road conditions, the time of the day and year you travel.
Trip Itinerary Islamabad to Muzaffarabad:  3-4 hour journey Muzaffarabad to Doarian: ~6 hour journey depending on traffic and road conditions Doarian to Lake base camp: 2.5 hour jeep drive Base camp to Lake: 1 hour easy trek
