Balakot (Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa)

Balakot is the most important town in the Mansehra district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and is located on the banks of the Kunhar River. The Kunhar River flows in a very clam channel after Balakot instead of narrow and sharp gorges in the Kaghan Valley. Balakot is the gateway of Kaghan Valley, a lush green valley, which is a connection point between Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan.
