Shahdara picnic point, Its family picnic area. Its peaceful while u keep ur feet inside cool water and have mango party.
Rather it feels u r in far flung hilly area. Its the backside of peer sohawa, Link road is in acceptable condition, few quite bad patches like u r approaching kel from shardah.
There is a Rock Climbing point as well there.......... people were trying to go up and fall down. It reminded me a course i participated in Rock climbing by a Foreign group in Astore Valley..............dreadful and dangerous activity that was.
