Shogran, a lovely plateau, is encircled by spectacular panoramas. The primary tourist destinations in Shogran are Siri Paye. Paye in the Hindko language means “high brushing ground.” At 2800 meters above Shogran level, Paye is a beautiful green knoll. Siri Paye is a fortified meadow in the north. It is typically remote because Siri Paye is harder to get to than Galiyat. Due to Siri Paye’s rocky landslides, steep slopes, small routes, and winter snow, its natural beauty has been preserved. Paye blossoms in the spring with a backdrop of the snow-capped Makra Peak.
The Paye becomes a clear-cut end-of-week objective from Pakistan’s capital. It transforms into a vast snow glade in the winter. The word “Siri” means “lake,” and this particular lake is situated in front of the Paye glades. During the winter, Siri becomes cemented and may be walked on. Siri Paye is close to the stunning hill towns of Shogran and Kaghan Valley.
