green valley , malam jabba"swat" pakistan
is home to the most popular ski resort of Pakistan. Located located nearly 40km from Saidu Sharif in Swat Valley, NWFP, Malam Jabba is a popular destination for tourists in winter as well as in summer. The distance from Islamabad by road is 314 Kilometers and 51 Kilometers from Saidu Sharif Airport. The PTDC resort at Malam Jabba has a ski slope of about 800m which is facilitated with a chairlift. The highest point of the slope is 2,804 m (9,200 feet) above sea level. There is a smaller slope with ski-lift for amateur skiers as well. The resort is equipped with snow clearing equipment and roller/ice skating rinks. The motel at the resort has elegantly furnished rooms and the restaurant offers both local and international cuisine.
