There is something magical about waterfalls, they intrigue us, inspire us and they are one of nature’s greatest and majestical beauties.
Pakistani Youtuber, Hassan Nisar, has discovered at least eight waterfalls that rain down the mountains of Jab valley, an unexplored and almost inaccessible basin situated at an altitude of 3,000 feet in district Haripur in Hazara Division. The waterfalls have been discovered via a drone camera by the Youtuber.
The majestic Jab valley, about an hour journey from Khanpur Dam, is surrounded by lush green mountains, amazing green beds, diverse plants, water bodies and precious and rare species.
The valley possesses different and unique species of flora and fauna. One can find rich olive trees, leopards on the hills and monkeys on the trees. This scenic spot gives you the feel of a beautiful hill station.
This site is an amazing place, although, it is not easily accessible. At present, only a few adventurers, mostly, locals can visit Jab.
Domestic and foreign tourists would only be able to enjoy hiking and witness crystal clear cascades and spectacular views of the eight waterfalls once a necessary road infrastructure is developed.
The first waterfall is situated at a height of 200 feet while the other seven waterfalls are approachable at a height of 500 feet. So far, this majestic sight had remained undiscovered and hidden from the world at large. The overall access to the valley is easy but the inconvenience starts, when tourists try to scale up to the waterfalls spot.
