Arangkel, Neelam Valley, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Pakistan .... Where the time stands still. It is the beauty at home: Neelum Valley a haven for nature lovers.

The Neelum Valley is a 200 kilometre-long, bow-shaped thick forested region in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), and named after the Neelum River, which flows through the length of the valley. The valley is situated in the north-east of Muzaffarabad, running parallel to the valley of Kaghan. The two valleys are separated by snow-covered peaks, some over 4,000 meters (13,000 ft) above sea level. The valley stretches from about 50 kilometres north of Muzaffarabad to the existing Line of Control between AJK and Indian Kashmir. The valley is connected to Muzaffarabad by the Neelam Road, which leads up to Kel. In the winters, the road from Keran onwards is blocked due to heavy snowfall, making it difficult to reach the upper parts of the valley.

Although Tourism reviving but it much-needed money into one of the poorest parts of the country. Though foreign tourists had declined over the years; but now they are again comming, the new roads allow Pakistanis together with foreign tourist, to discover the snow-capped peaks, lakes and lush-green meadows of the picturesque valley.
