Lakes and Waterfalls:
From a distance, the falls below look like rocks, but you can hear the sound of water falling on rocks, which means there is a waterfall somewhere between these heights. This waterfall is called Jahaz Banda. The Katora Lake is the most important lake in the Kumrat valley. The glaciers around the lake melt water that flows into the lake. In Pashto, the word katora means “bowl.” It was given this name because the lake looks like a bowl.
Food and lodging:
Kumrat Valley doesn’t have a lot of places to stay and eat. If you do find any, they will definitely charge you a lot for their help. Because of this, you should definitely bring your own food and any travel gear you need. Anyway, both the federal government of KPK and the local government are trying to make sure that visitors have the right places to live.
