Lalazar is the 2nd hot tourist spot after lake saiful malook, situated at a distance of 21 km from Naran in Kaghan Valley, Pakistan at the height of 10,499 feet (3,200 meters. It is a large green plateau once known for beautiful wild flowers, intoxicating scents and soothing pine forests. Though recently cultivation of potato, peas and other corps have declined the natural beauty, but still enchanting view of Malika Parbat & Falak Sonia, and lush meadows make it a must visit. Thousands of tourists visit this place each year.

Lalazar can be reached through a muddy jeep track of about half an hour hour starting from Battakundi. In a rainy day, one should avoid to go there on jeep, as here the mud (soil) is slippery. Some people prefer trekking over riding the jeep. And can go along with the jeep track. One famous, moderate trek of around 5 hours starting from Lake Saif-ul-Malook through picturesque Hans Gali ends at Lalazar.

The superb natural scenery and greenery is the main attraction of the area. The natural beauty of the area is worth watching. The unpolluted air, the refreshing smell from the surrounding, the quietness and the beauty of the place can make anyone fall in love with this place. Best time to visit this valley is from June to November (before start of snow falling). It can be visited in earlier months, but one have to hike, as the roads / tracks are covered with snow.

There is a small tea cabin which caters snacks, soft drinks juices etc. One who visit, should also go down to forest area as well. Although many trees have been cut down, but still on the down side, the forest exists.
