Swat Pakistan is known as Switzerland of Asia. Thanks to beautiful landscaping of Upper Swat Valley along Swat river. Mingora is the capital city of Swat along with Kalam, Malam Jabba, Marghazar as its main tourist points. Situated in western Side in Khyber Paktunkha province of Pakistan, It is at 4 hrs drive from capital city of Islamabad

Malam Jabba is known for best skiing facility in Pakistan and is just 45 km from Mingora City. Now a 5 star hotel is constructed along with Adventure facilities like zip line and chair lift.

Kalam is also tourist capital of Swat situated along river Swat in Upper Swat valley. Major lake in Kalam is Mahondand lake. It is located in upper Ushu valley Swat beyond Kalam and is worth each penny. Road to Mahondand lake Swat is jeep able and take around 3 hrs from Kalam.

If you have your own car, it takes 5 hours from Islamabad/Rawalpindi to Swat (Mingora City), and further 5 hrs for Kalam. It depends where you wanna stay. At Mingora City or move ahead to Madyan, Miandam, Bahrain or Kalam Valley. From Islamabad to Kalam the road is very good, from Islamabad to Mingora there is motorway and onward you have to travel on GT Road. from Kalam to Mahondand which takes around 2 Hr 30 Minutes you will have hire a Jeep.
