The Kohistan salt range extends from the Kalabagh mountains in the west to the Jhelum mountains. There are vast deposits of salt and the salt of this range has a prominent position in the European market. In this salt range, suitable environments and places are available for almost all types of tourism. There is a lot to offer here for those interested in adventure tourism, the best branch of tourism. From Sambal village to Pir Khara, the Salt Range region is an excellent off-road trek that is full of adventure.
Starting Point of Trek
End Point of Trek
The trek starts near Sambal village of Chakwal on one side. The track is a dirt road for trucks bringing salt from the salt mines in the mountains below. Many mountains of different textures, streams of water, and wild animals can be seen. The trek starts from under the motorway bridge near Sambal village. At the beginning of the trek, one can see the beautiful view of lake Blue Pearl built on the water of natural springs. The lake Blue Pearl has a prominent role in the tourism of Chakwal. A new waterfall has also come up near this lake which started flowing after the recent rains in Savan and is still flowing.
Beyond this view, there are a few kilometers of steep descents with plenty of scenic spots but one must be careful of salt-laden trucks going uphill. After coming down the hill, the water of the same lake starts flowing along. From here the track becomes a little smoother but the difficulty increases due to the hilly terrain and the rushing water of the river. A little further, when the water of Swake Lake also joins, the water flow starts to get faster. Then alongside the salt mines begin to be seen and thus the trek ends by reaching the Darbar, passing through the water of the river and taking in the view of the salt mines.

Just before the end of the trek, there is a Dhaba-style hotel for salt mine workers and truck drivers. Which is my favorite point of this track. The hotel is surrounded by towering mountains and a river running deep a few feet below the road. The road from this hotel to the Darbar is smooth and easy. If coming from Peer Khara, this hotel can be reached by car. Beyond that, it is difficult for the car to pass through the water.
If you visit such places, take special care to keep them clean so that future generations can see them in their full beauty.
