    1.importance of traveling during youth and old age.

   When any our friend or family member go for traveling we pray for him in different ways:

    1. Have safe journey.

     2. Happy safe journey.

     3. May this journey bring happiness.

     4.God protect you from any mishap.

 In almost every age, traveling is associated with well-being, it brings a change of routine, a refreshment to the heart and mind. We have the opportunity to rearrange our lives and face new places, people and things.

        Young people often think of summer camps or vacations. Think of travel or “study abroad” programs to study after high school and college. In young age we think of travel as a way to relax, which reduces the stress and strain of our hard work and family life.

 During midlife and old age, traveling takes on a whole new meaning. High level travel in the elderly proves to be very good for our mental health. It also helps keep the brain healthy, and can even delay or prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

     Traveling encourages people to stay active, make new friends, discover, and set aside time for both play and recovery. Traveling has the potential to ‘enlighten the mind’ across a wide range of neurological pathways, with many health and cognitive benefits. When people move from youth to retirement, they are attracted to normal activities and often avoid new experiences. 

 In their quest to be more comfortable, they can deny themselves the joys and frustrations of facing challenges. In contrast, children and young adults spend a lot of time in playful activities with old friends.


  2.  A story of journey towards Valley Kashmir.

  It was the beginning of August 2021. I make a program with my friend to go to Kashmir for a few days. My friend belongs to Chakar area of ​​Kashmir. Our friendship lasted for two years. In those two years, the program to go to Kashmir kept getting broken. This time my intention was strong and the intense heat of August also compelling me go to some cool place.

      My friend Iqbal suggest that a long journey would be tiring. But I request him that along with the intense heat, business engagements put me under stress, Spending a few days out of this will also be a good change in your country Kashmir.

 This journey to an area like Chakar in Jhelum Valley will not be tiring but will be a source of mental and physical energy. So on August 6, we left for Kashmir … The destination of our trip was Kashmir whose valleys and mountains with all their beauty satisfy the tastes of tourists ….. I am personally interested in the history of Kashmir as well as the geography of Kashmir ….. In the city of Muzaffarabad, on the right side of the Quaid-e-Azam Bridge, locally known as the Two Mile Bridge, along the former Generally Road, known as the Muzaffarabad-Srinagar Highway, extends on both sides of the Jhelum River to Lake Dal Srinagar. When you come to this road, after a while, pleasant cool and drunken winds send the message that you are going to the land of clouds.

 Most of the population of Jhelum Valley is educated. Usually people are employed. Farming is a common practice of animal husbandry. Cold freshwater springs, high and lofty peaks, dense forests and lush green fields.

    Chahm Abshaar.

        (Which is the largest waterfall in Azad Kashmir).

    While the Ganga peak in the Pir Panjal mountain range separates the Jhelum Valley from Poonch, on the other hand, the Qazi Nag mountain range separates the Jhelum Valley from the Lepa valley. 

   The two lakes created as a result of the October 8, 2005 earthquake, Zalzal Lake and Bani Hafiz Lake are also located in the same Jhelum Valley. Due to the fact that Jhelum Valley is hidden from the eyes of tourists, it has not been introduced properly yet. I was lost in the thoughts that the car left Muzaffarabad Srinagar Highway and turned towards the heights of Chakar.

 Chakar was drowned in the clouds … The aroma of the rain-soaked alpine forests wafted in our body and soul.

 Chakar: The master of nature

 Chakar is a very beautiful and healthy place. About 50 km from Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Kashmir, visit this beautiful and attractive place. Passing through the village of Dhani Baqalan, about 35 km away, turn right at the heights on the right side towards Chakar, which is 15 km away from here. Pothi Bazaar is a few minutes away from the bustling bazaar of Chakar. From where a road turns down which leads to Bagh District Azad Kashmir while from the same place a road goes upwards which leads to Noon Bagla and Rahim Kot. From here Noon Bagla is located about 10 km up. And Zalzal Lake is located at a distance of 3 km. Along the way there is a fish hatchery along with Hill View Resort and Guest House. The summer season is very pleasant. You are surrounded by clouds for hours. That is why this tehsil of District Hatian Bala is also called the land of clouds. From here Ganga peak and on the other side Qazi Nag peak can be seen perched in the clouds. Three places in Chakar are worth seeing.

 1. Zalzal Lake (Ataabad-like, lake created as a result of the 2005 earthquake in an area of ​​three and a half kilometers.

 Noon Bagla.

 Noon Bagla is located at a considerable height of ten kilometers from Chakar. This 10 km journey is full of very beautiful scenery … There is a beautiful track above Noon Bagla. This track is surrounded by very beautiful pine forests which go up to the top.

 Earthquake At the end of the lake, the water of the lake falls down in the form of three waterfalls. And to its right is another lake formed as a result of an earthquake called Bani Hafiz Lake … Our next journey was from Chakar to Noon Bangla or Bagla.

 Noon Bagla Mosque.

 Noon Bagla: 
   “Natural air conditioning”

  Noon Bagla is located about 10 km above Chakar Bazaar on a track full of pine, pine and walnut forests. The village is known throughout Azad Kashmir for its natural beauty. Located on a 10-minute trek from Noon Bagla Bazaar, Noon Bagla Top is no less beautiful than any other tourist destination in Pakistan. From this place you can enjoy the views of Lepa Valley, Pandu, Ganga Peak, Zalzal Lake, and Curly Chakar on one side and on the other side you can see the beautiful peaks of Mount Qazi Nag. Can also be enjoyed.

  In some places in Noon Bagla, there are rocks which are also called natural air conditioners by the locals because these rocks continue to emit naturally very cold winds like AC running underground. It was an amazing experience. Similarly, the field located in Noon Bagla village beyond Noon Bagla Bazaar is also a beautiful place. There is a spring near the Jama Masjid here which is called Allah Ho Chashma. The feature of this spring is that when we “say” Allah on the bank of this spring, the springs of water can be seen bursting. This was also an amazing experience. Second, the water of this spring is colder than ice. Located on the banks of a small canal made of springs, surrounded on all sides by mountains and natural forests, this plain covers about 600 kanals of land. Camping on this moonlit night is by no means the best and most beautiful experience of life. About 25 minutes tracking from this field, there is a very beautiful place called Dangian which enchants the tourists every year with its natural beauty. The most important and unique feature of Noon Bagla is the cool and freshwater springs here. There must be a fountain outside almost every house in Noon Bagla, the number of which is about 30. Allah Hoo chashma is more beautiful … The Noon Bagla season is a tourist hotspot almost all year round. In winter, there is 4 to 5 feet of snowfall in the months of December and January and even in summer, the temperature here is usually 10 to 20 degrees Celsius. … This beautiful place, the beauty of the whole of Azad Kashmir, is waiting for your arrival.

 Zalzal lake.

 On the way from Muzaffarabad Chakoti Road on the right to Chakar Sadhan Gali Road on the way to Ganga Peak, you can see a beautiful lake at Karli, which looks enchanting in the depths between the mountains. Have you ever visited this lake? If not, let us tell you today the route of the Zalzal lake and also some important information about it. This lake was created due to an accident. You will know that on October 8, 2005 there was an earthquake in Kashmir and Pakistan. During the same earthquake, a slide fell in Karli, a village adjacent to Chakar area of ​​Muzaffarabad and the whole village was hit by the slide and due to which seven hundred to twelve hundred people were crushed under the slide. Due to the slide, the natural canal consisting of water coming from the heights of Noon Bangla was blocked and its water filled the entire valley, thus this lake came into existence … because this lake was formed due to an earthquake. That is why it was named Zalzal Lake. The lush mountains around the lake, dense trees and There are beautiful villages that offer beautiful views, the water of this lake falls in the form of three waterfalls … These three waterfalls offer a beautiful view against the backdrop of dense forests. This water flows into the Jhelum River in the form of a drain at the beginning of Hatian Bala Bazaar.

 If attention is paid to the Zalzal Lake Valley, a 5-foot walk way should be built along its banks, around which a safety wall should be built. Two waterfalls of Saji Kot Havelian are famous all over the country while there are three waterfalls of this lake. But unfortunately, due to the inattention of the institutions, this lake, despite its beauty, could not get the status of a regular tourist destination. Most tourists find it safe to see it from afar. It has been going on and it is being considered as a warning sign because it was caused by an earthquake and 1200 people were buried under it. There are victims, one of whom is Bani Hafiz Lake.

 Bani Hafiz Lake

 On the road from Chakar to Sadhan Gali, where the first view of Zalzal Lake can be seen, on the hill across the lake, houses with beautiful red roofs can be seen in the dense forests. This area is called Bani Hafiz. Bani Hafiz Lake is located at the foot of this mountain. This lake is also formed due to landslides after the earthquake. To reach Bani Hafiz Lake, you first have to go to Hatian Bala. There is a road from Bani Hafiz Chowk to Bani Hafiz in the bazaar(market). From there, you reach Bani Hafiz. It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring. At a depth of two thousand feet from Bani Hafiz, the water flowing from the sides of the Ganga peak between the high mountains forms Bani Hafiz Lake. Then after going a little further, these zalzal Lake together with the waters of the lake meet at the place of hatian Bala in the river Jhelum … There is also a shortcut way to see Bani Hafiz Lake and Zalzal Lake and waterfalls in one day. Take a walk then sit in a boat and go to the other side of the lake. From there visit the amazing view of the waterfalls and Bani Hafiz Lake surrounded by forests. After visiting the lake and waterfalls, you can go back to the other side of the lake in a boat. We stopped using the boat route and went to Bani Hafiz, so there was no time left to meet the relatives there, to go down and touch the lake Bani Hafiz and the waterfalls and feel … It was evening and I had to come back from the top of the mountain with pictures. And at 12 o’clock that night, we were leaving Muzaffarabad for Pindi via faisal movers.
