Thanks to Athif.A.Khan for adding this peak.
This Peak (Malka-Parbat) is the highest peak in the Hzara Division, in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Its elevation is 17,500 Ft above sea Level and it over-shadows the legendary Lake Saif-Ul-Muluk which in it-self is at an altitude of 9000 Ft. The nearest major village is Naran (Kaghan valley). This peak can be ascended by several routes, the most easy being the route following Lalazar, which on a straight road from Naran is about 20km and once you reach Lalazar from Naran, you can further up your climb through lush green meadows to all of a sudden rocky and snow covered peaks.
