Usho Valley, Swat
what should be here?
Mahodand valley, in the North of Kalam, is famous not only among nature lovers and escapists but also the exotic trout fish hunters. The valley can be accessed through a un-metalled road from Kalam in a four by four (4x4) vehicle.
The valley's pride, Mahodand Lake is an exquisite landscape resting in the heart of the Hindu Kush mountains. This magnificent lake is a masterpiece of ethereal beauty. The icy emerald green waters of the lake, swarming with trout fish are fed by the glacial mountains that guard its precious treasures.

Apart from the 2km long lake, the area features hundreds of big and small waterfalls, lush sceneries, meadows, clumps of pine and cedar trees, and snow-capped peaks in the distance.
