THE ALLURE
There are very few places on the earth where history has moved so swiftlyand thereare even fewer places where natureis present in its true colours. Swat has both. It is,perhaps, a unique place which perfectly blends history, nature andculture into an attractivetourism package.Here is a land whichoffers everythingfrom beautiful colours, incredibleseasons, entertainment activities and hospitable people to breathtaking sights andserioushistory.Today Swat and its surroundings are completely free from militancy. The crime rateis lowest as compared to the rest of the country. One can freely travel around and enjoy theendless tranquility.Today as one walks through the bustling bazaars of Mingora or treks through theheights of Kalam or Piochar orfish trout inRiver Swat or walksthrough the plum orchardsofBarikot andMatta,he cannot believe that behind these scenes lietales of blood andsorrow. The people will greet you with smiles. They will treat you with their centuries oldhospitable traditions in which they take pride and if you would ask them about the turmoilthey endured they would just nod theirheads and move on talking ofthebeautyoftheirarea, as if the bloody years werebut anightmare. This is what makes the beauty of Swatgalvanize. The resilience of beautiful people of the beautiful valley.
