Cost from Islamabad: PKR 16,900/-

The Makra is a scenic peak in the Mansehra District in Hazara Region of the Himalayas in northern Pakistan. It is 4,000 metres (13,123 ft) high and almost 200 km from Islamabad on the Naran Road. From Kiwai, a single 7-kilometre-long road runs uphill to Shogran, a tourist resort with numerous hotels; the track continues to climb up to Seree Lake and ends at Paye. From here it is a trek of four hours to the top of the Makra in the summer season. Hiking on the Makra is difficult due to snow and the gradient of the mountainsides.

Although it can be straight forward to climb, fatalities have occurred during storms. In spite of its difficulties, the summit offers the good views of Hazara and Azad Kashmir. Conditions tend to difficult in bad weather, especially thick fog, and as a result of the steepness of some sections. The waters from the mountain’s glacier feed the Kunhar River.
