Neelum Valley is 144 km long bow-shaped thickly forested region in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan.
It is named after the Neelum River, which flows through the valley and situated in the north-east of Muzaffarabad, running parallel to Kaghan Valley.
The two valleys are separated by snow-covered peaks, some over 4,000 meters (13,000 ft) above sea level.
Neelam Valley is connected with Muzaffarabad by Neelam Road, which leads up to Kel. The road condition from Muzaffarabad to Athmuqam is very good and suitable for any kind of transport.
From Keran to Kel, the road condition is not very well and not suitable for low floor vehicles.
In winters, road onward Keran is blocked due to heavy snowfall and it is very difficult to reach upper parts of the valley.
Vans service is only available from Muzaffarabad to Athmuqam after every 30 minutes. Buses run daily between Muzaffarabad and Kel in good weather.
