Visit Sudhan Gali in Bagh

It lies on the main road that connects the district Bagh to Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Kashmir and also connects the town of Chikkar with Bagh city. It is located at the height of 7000 feet.

The name Sudhan Gali has derived from a Pashto tribe saduzai who came here for Jihad at Dogra raj and settled here after that.

Unfortunately no hospital and higher school is available for both boys and girls in Sudhan Gali. They either have go to Birpani or Bagh for higher education. There is only one central Jamia mosque where people from surrounding come to offer prayers.


This beautiful, scenic place attracts hundreds of tourists from all over Azad Kashmir and Pakistan. There are two guest houses for tourists, which are constructed very beautifully and attract large number of people each summer however, these houses are occupied mostly by well known, well connected/influential people and are not available most of the times for common tourists due to lack of a transparent system that would accommodate ordinary tourists.

Sudhan Gali is famous for its hiking trails that lead to Ganga Choti (Peak), a mountain peak about 9989 feet(3044 mt) feet high and one of the most famous tourist attractions in AJK, Pakistan.


Sudhan Gali is also home to some of the rarest forests in the region containing pine trees that are hundreds of years old. Due to lack of knowledge/interest, these forsest are now endangered to become extinct as locals continue deforestation by cutting down trees yet local/state governments seem to have no interest in saving them.


There is a cricket ground near the Ganga Peak known as Ser Ground, located between two mountains, it is not very large but looks very beautiful. Every year in June a cricket tournament is held there in which sixteen teams of District Bagh and Muzafarabad participate.
