Tour to Kalam and Mengora

Kalam is one of beautiful places whose beauty is still quite intact when compared to Muree and surroundings.

We used the bus service “Sawat Daewoo” from Lahore to Mengora. The bus fare was 900 per head. We used the night time so we picked the time 11 AM for bus departure thus we did reachedMengora early in the morning around 7 AM. We had break fast at Mengora and then we started to look for the journey to Kalam.

We came to know that if we hire private source (Jeep, Wagon) it will cost us from 4 to 8 thousands (PKR). So instead we used the local wagon (Hiace) service. The fare was 250 each, we were 6 boys in the group. During the journey we met another 6-boys groups who were also heading to Kalam. So we did form friendship and both groups benefited from this. It is around 4 hours journey from Mengora to Kalam so we reached there at 1:00 PM in the noon, and had lunch. We enjoyed chapli kabab in lunch.
