Malam Jabba

Situated on one of the important off shoots of Silk Route, Malam Jabba is not only a winter resort and chairlift facility but also a sign of older civilizations. Standing at an elevation of 8700 ft in Hindu Kush Ranges in Swat Valley, Malam Jabba is 314 km from Islamabad and 51 km from Saidu Sharif on Kalam Road. The road diverts from Manglor to Malam Jabba. The area of Malam Jabba emerges with gentle slopes, placid plains and torrential streams. It is a valley of thick forests of Pine and Deodar trees that cover the whole area. In winter the entire area remains covered with snow making it an ideal place for skiing. Malam Jabba has also numerous archaeological remains including two Buddhist stupas and six monasteries that are a witness to its continuous occupation by the people for the last 2000 years. The Buddhist remains of Malam Jabba are distinctive in being located at such a high altitude. At Malam Jabba, there are two major tracks for trekkers; one goes to Shangla Top (2134 m above sea level) and the other to Saboney valley after crossing thick pine forests.
