Sharda and Arang Kel are two picturesque locations in the Neelum Valley of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. While both places are stunning throughout the year, there are specific reasons why visiting them during winters can be a unique and rewarding experience:
Snow-covered landscapes: During winters, Sharda and Arang Kel transform into a winter wonderland with pristine white snow covering the landscapes. The snow-capped mountains, trees, and surroundings create a mesmerizing and magical atmosphere that adds a different charm to the scenery.
Peaceful and serene environment: Winter is generally an off-peak tourist season, so visiting during this time allows you to enjoy a quieter and more peaceful experience. The tranquility of the snow-covered surroundings enhances the overall serenity of the area, providing a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Adventure opportunities: Winter opens up opportunities for various winter sports and activities, such as snow trekking and skiing. The hilly terrains of Sharda and Arang Kel offer excellent spots for adventure enthusiasts to indulge in these activities, providing a thrilling experience against the backdrop of the snow-covered mountains.
Photography opportunities: The winter scenery provides photographers with unique and captivating opportunities to capture breathtaking shots. The contrast between the white snow and the vibrant colors of the landscape can result in stunning photographs, making it an ideal time for photography enthusiasts to visit.
Cultural exploration: Sharda, in particular, is known for its historical and cultural significance. The Sharda Peeth, an ancient Hindu temple, attracts visitors throughout the year. Exploring the cultural heritage of the region amidst the snow-covered landscapes adds a special dimension to the experience.
Warm hospitality: The locals in Neelum Valley are known for their warm hospitality. Visiting during winters allows you to experience the hospitality of the people in a more intimate setting, as there are fewer tourists, and locals may have more time to engage with visitors.
While the beauty of Sharda and Arang Kel is evident year-round, the winter season adds a unique and enchanting touch to these already stunning destinations, making it a worthwhile experience for those who appreciate snow-covered landscapes and a peaceful atmosphere.
