Saif ul Malook jheel is a heavenly sight to behold! Travelers have praised the beauty of lake Saif Ul Muluk in a number of ways.
But the fact is, there are no words to describe the grandeur of this masterpiece of nature until you visit it.
Saif ul Malook Location
Lake Saiful Muluk is located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley, near the town of Naran in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan, high in the Himalayan Mountains.
Located at an elevation of 3,224 meters (10,578 feet) above sea level, it is Pakistan’s highest alpine lake.
Saiful Muluk jheel was formed by the melting of Northern glaciers.
A long time ago, northern glaciers blocked the flow of water in the stream and the entire region was completely covered with ice.
But as the earth’s temperature began to increase, the glaciers melted and a large vacuum was produced, resulting in the formation of this ice lake.
Saif ul Malook Story/ Poem
There are many tales about this fantasy lake. A famous narrative follows Saif ul Malook, a prince who falls in love with Badi ul Jamal, a fairy princess.
Mian Muhammad Bakhsh, a Sufi saint and Punjabi Hindko poet, turned the tale into a poem.
Ahmed Hussain Mujahid, a Balakot native, was the one who translated the poem into Urdu.
According to the residents, the lake is a location of fairies and demons who express their rage through extreme weather.
Saif ul Malook Depth
The depth of the lake has never been determined, according to the Saif ul Malook storytellers.
The Saif ul Malook depth reaches a maximum of about 34 meters (113 ft). The lake has a surface area of 2.75 sq. km. Because it gets primarily glacier waters, the water temperature remains below 10 degrees.
Saiful Muluk Other Name
Saif ul Malook lake is also known as ‘the magical lake’.
The reason why it’s called Magical Lake is that the water freezes inside due to extremely low temperatures throughout the winter and then gets back to normal flowing water in the summer.
Saif ul Muluk Lake at night is a must-see sight.
This natural lake is captivating in the bright sunlight, and it also has a pleasant effect on tourists beneath the bright stars.
Tourists love to camp on the lake’s shore at night, surrounded by the Milkyway’s billions of stars. Capturing the shining Milkyway above the lake may make for a magical night.
