Origin and routeEdit

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

The river originates from the upper Kaghan Valley's Dharamsar Lake, near Babusar Pass. 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] River Kunhar flows through the entire Kaghan valley (Upper and Lower) and enters into Nainsukh Valley from Balakot comprising Garhi Habibullah and Dalola.[citation needed] The river confluences with Jhelum River at Rarah about 10 km downstream from Muzaffarabad, in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir State, Pakistan.
