The next two settlements on the main road of Naran are jared and Mahandri. Jared used to be famous because of its furniture and handicrafts of walnut wood. The NWFP government operates a handicrafts development centre here. Some private shops also sell traditional style

carved furniture and handmade decoration items. Mahandri is 46 kilometers from Balakot. The Manoer Nala joins river Kunhar at this place. It is a starting point for trekking route to Kuch Gali and Manoor Peak. (See trekking section for more details in Annexure-IV) Mahandri has a small bazaar with shops selling items of daily use, in addition to some restaurants and two budget hotels.


Jared is known for its handicrafts. The N.W.F.P government operates a handicraft developement centre at Jared, two hours from Balakot. State-run and private shops sell traditional-style carved furniture, hand-made woolen shawls and other work.


Even farther is the village of Mahanderi where a stream from Munawar valley flows into the Kunar. Walking treks to Munawar Gali, Biyarhi, and Kach Gali originate from Mahandheri.
The altitude of Mahanderi village is 5,800 feet the landscape and the scene changes here and becomes wilder. The river Mahanderi is still with you but you’ll feel it much closer to you.
