Swinje Valley, Pakistan

Surrounded by huge mountains of Pamirs (called roof of the world), just near Karomber Pass lies this extremely beautiful valley of Pakistan. This place is uniwue for having natural onion grass and heavy grass carpets. In his travelogue, Mustansar Hussain Tarar calls this valley to be the elder sisiter of Deosai with nevere ending treeless meadows. This valley is like a gift of

Allah for those who have crossed the uncertain Chitti Boui Glacier. Dont get disappointed on the very first sight. Its not the valley to be fallen in love at first sight... but the beauty graph goes exponentially up and reaches its extreme where this valley ends at Karomber Pass near Karomber lake. Another good thing about this place is its still unexplored and safe from human destructions. A must do trek for any mountains lover.
