The picturesque Lalazar in the Galiyat region not only provides a refreshing break in the summer but also has wildlife to see in the zoo. Located at a height of 9,000 ft. in Nathiagali, Lalazar park (start point) is located at a 5 minutes drive from Hotel Elites and is approximately 15 minutes uphill walk (one way) to reach. It is worth mentioning that the same track also leads to Mukshpuri — the second highest peak of the locality enabling hikers and trekkers to view Azad & Jammu Kashmir and Murree hills. The landscape of Lalazar boasts of thick natural forest, the mystifying call of birds and a meandering track along the hill to the Mukshpuri which leave long-lasting imprints on the minds of the visitors. Generally, tourists take the route to Mukshpuri through the forest from Donga Gali, but those taking a trip to Mukshpuri via Nathiagali may have the opportunity to traverse Lalazar.
An interesting idea would be to go to the top from one side and then descend from the other so one can see Lalazar as well. While doing so, remember to send the vehicle off to the other point i.e. Donga Gali or Nathiagali while you are trekking so that the vehicle is ready for you when you complete your descent. The Lalazar Wildlife Park is a focal point where prominent wildlife of the area can best be observed in a leisurely walk. In addition, the snow leopard provides the visitors an opportunity to see this rare, majestic, big wild cat whose habitat is the snowbound mountains of the northern areas in Pakistan.
