Mansehra District , Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

what should be here?

At a distance of 72 km from Abbottabad, Balakot is the gateway to the Kaghan Valley. Balakot is one of the main cities of Mansehra District. It serves as the chief city of Balakot Tehsil, which is the largest Tehsil of Mansehra District. 

It takes about one and a half hours to reach Balakot from Abbottabad, passing through the busy town of Mansehra. The journey between Mansehra and Balakot is a charming experience. The blacktop road winds through beautiful green hills and the thick forest of Batrasi. Views from Batrasi towards Kaghan Valley are spectacular. 

Though a small town located on the bank of Kunhar River Balakot garners tremendous historical significance. A famous battle was fought here between the Sikh Army and Muslim freedom fighters in 1831. It is also here that Hazrat Syed Ahmed Shaheed and Hazrat Shah Ismail Shaheed also sacrificed their lives while fighting for the liberation movement.
