Makra Peak 3885-M

Makra is a scenic peak in the Azad Jammu Kashmir and Hazara region of the Himalayas in northern Pakistan. It is 3885-M high peak and almost 200 km from Islamabad on Naran road. From Kiwai a jeep track goes upwards to Shogran, a tourist place, the track goes upward to Payee Lake and ends at Seree. From here it is a walking trek of three hours to the top of Makra.
The other approach road is from Muzaffarabad the capital of Azad Jammu Kashmir,almost 35 Km to the Base Camp of Makra called Bheri and from Bheri the hiking trek of 5 to 6 hours to the top of Makra.
Although it is an easy peak deaths have occurred in storms. In spite of the difficulties, the top offers the unforgettable scenery of Hazara and Azad Kashmir.

Fantastic shot

I am ignorant concerning Pakistan, as I picture either scorching desert or the high wind-blasted peaks of the Karakoram. This shot shows me that an altogether different terrain exists. Thanks for opening my eyes.

Suggestion

Hi,

I am slightly (that my guess) overweight around 100KG. Haaa. I have done Nanga Perbat base camp trek and also Danna Meadows winter survival (in February this year). Do you think i can do this trek?

Its lovely place and i don't wanna miss that.

regards,
