Buner - Ambala Pass

Publishing Date: Friday, April 1 2005

The famous Ambela Pass, situated in Buner, can easily be approached from Mardan via Shahbaz Garhi and Rustam. It is about 50 kilometers, away from Mardan. The British fought a very tough battle here against Yusufzai Afghan lashkars in 1863. The Muslim graveyard of martyrs, the Bab Ji Kandao, where Hazrat Saidu Baba (RA) camped, the Craig Picket and Eagle's Nest can still be seen at Ambela Pass. This route of Swat is quieter and more scenic than the Malakand Pass. The Malakand area is fettered under the shelter of green and dry mountains. The main road climbs up across 894 meters, to Buner Pass and comes down to China (Pronounced Cheena). Four Kilometers, further is Daggar, from where a newly repaired road leads to Jowar. The 45 kilometers, road from Pir Baba (RA) to Barikot passes through Mount Ilam rising through mature pine forests to 1336 meters high Karakar Pass.

Pacha Kili - the Mazar of Hazrat Pir Baba (RA)

The village of Pacha which can be approached from Daggar, is famous for the Mazar of Hazrat Syed Ali Trimzi known as Hazrat Pir Baba (RA). He lived during the reigns of Babar, Humayun and Akbar the Great and spread the teachings of Islam in the area.
