Tourists have often complained about the ‘dangerous and rough’ road leading to famous Saiful Muluk lake in the scenic Kaghan valley.
Saiful Muluk lake, which is situated at an elevation of 3,224 meters (10,578 feet) above the sea level, is quite a popular spot for tourists but according to them, 10km road to the lake (Naran-Saiful Muluk Road) is dangerous due to its decrepit condition.
