Usho (also spelled Ushu) is a hill station in Usho Valley, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is situated 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) from Kalam and 123 kilometers (76 mi) km from Saidu Sharif at the height of 2,300 metres (7,550 feet).[1] It is accessible through a non metalled road from Kalam by jeeps only.

Usho is known for its beautiful cloudy and rainy forest. Tourist attraction Mahodand lake is located 27 kilometers (17 mi) from there.

In winter, the famous Ushu glashier blocks the only path to the Mahodand lake and this path is only opened again in Summer, when the snow of the glashier melts and the authorities wipe of the remaining snow from the road.
