I have blogged about Shadra before. What I would like to tell you about Shadra now is that if you want to hop in at an extremely beautiful place and have pakoras and kababs while diving in fresh cold water in the midst of margallah hills, get yours friends, take a couple of towels, wear your bermudas and go to Shadra.

    Long time back, no one knew about the place. Is it crowded now ? And clean as before ?

    same questions asked as above … I hope it’s not as bad now as chattar park turned few years back .. I remember in very bachpan of mine … I used to love roaming in clean flowing waters of chattar but as they gathered it making a pond … everything became dirty and not worth visiting …!

    me three for the same questions as above.. It is a great tragedy for us that commercialism ends up destroying the very nature that adds value to a place… Murree, Chattar, Even Nathiagali being examples of how exploitation has meant the demise of natural retreats.

    It is clean enough to go and take a mini-swim-cum-bath! And enjoy pakoras and samosas with cold drinks to complement. The bad part is that there are no public dustbins there, so people who do not take trash-bags with them have no options but to throw the trash there. So, it is en-route in becoming the next chattar-salgirah-nathiagali.

    That is why I advise you to go there before the fun gets dirty :).

    PS. The best time to go is between Asar and Maghrib!
