Miandam is a charming hill station located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, in the foothills of Hindu Kush mountains. It is located at a distance of 55 km away from Mingora the capital of Swat Valley, and 56 kilometers from Saidu Sharif. The main road continues north up the Swat valley and reaches the village of Fatehpur, where the road branches off towards east and runs through gorgeous hillside villages and leads to the popular hill resort of Miandam. Miandam is a very picturesque tourist spot at an elevation of 1,800 meters (5,900 feet) above sea level.
Miandam is enriched in medicinal plants, owing to which the town is the site of a World Wide Fund for Nature project promoting sustainable harvesting of medicinal plants, and now about 1,000 people are dependent on the medicinal plant trade for their entire income. The primary economy of the region is based on tourism and agriculture.
On entering Miandam valley, the metalled road passes through small hillside villages in a spiral manner and leads to a region, surrounded by terraced fields, fruit orchards, and lush green mountain slopes. Paths follow the waterfalls, past houses with behives set into the walls. The region also serves as a base camp for a trek that leads to Dadsar baba top, which is a hidden paradise for adventurous hikers.
