Raees Khan Inquilabi Guide in Neelum Valley

Raees Khan Inqilabi, a man who trekked over 54 lakes of Neelum Valley out of 70 including Ratti Galli lakes. Sometimes he did it all alone facing wilderness at extreme temperatures challenging himself every difficulty.

He describes Neelum as one of the most beautiful valleys of Azaad Kashmir, and it hosts several brooks, freshwater streams, forests, lush green mountains, and a river. Here, you see cataracts falling down the mountains; their milky-white waters flowing over the roads and splashing against the rocks, before commingling with the muddy waters of River Neelum.

He has been often attacked by wild creatures during his expeditions. But his passion drives him to explore more into the wild. He is often known as PRINCE OF RATTI GALI as he knows each and everything about Ratti Gali region in Neelum Valley. Many tourist groups accompany him along as a perfect trekking guide.

Valley of fountains, springs, waterfalls, flowering trees and plants, Raees describes Neelum as a hospitable valley. 90 miles long bow-shaped with majestic pine, fir and deodar trees, lies north-south of Muzaffarabad (capital). This ninety-mile long kingdom of vegetation is ripped apart by the indigo blue Neelum river which flows serpentinely down hills to merge itself into the river Jhelum at Domail.
