Shogran, one of the most beautiful plateaus in the valley, is situated 34 kilometers from Balakot via Kewai. To reach this quaint place, take a side road on the right after passing through Kewai. From here it is a steep 7 kilometers to Shogran. The road is metalled and normal cars and vans can make the drive. Surrounded by thick pine forests and with an altitude of 7747 feet, the summer climate of Shogran is very mild and pleasant. One of the nicer places to visit is Shogran's Forest Rest House. From the rolling grassy lawns of the rest house, one can see breathtaking panoramic views of snow covered mountains. Kaghan Valley's highest peaks, such as Musa Ka Musalla (4419 m), Makra (3885 m) and Malika Parbat (5290 m), are visible from here. For those wishing to stay for the night or have a meal, there are a number of small and medium-sized hotels in Shogran. For more information on hotels please consult the list of hotels.
