Origin and route[edit]

The view of River Kunhar flowing from Tehsil Balakot, District Mansehra during winters.

The river originates from Lulusar Lake, nearly 48 kilometres (30 mi) upstream from Naran Valley. Waters of Dudipat and Saiful Muluk Lakes feed the river besides glacial waters from Malka Parbat and other high peaks in the valley.[citation needed] The Kunhar river flows through the entire Kaghan valley, Jalkhand, Kaghan, Balakot, Garhi Habibullah and Dalola.[citation needed] The River joins with Jhelum River at confluence just outside Muzaffarabad, in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir province, Pakistan.
