    Malika Parbat peaks are situated in Kaghan Valley. The ridge-line that contains peaks of name Malika Parbat has 04 prominent summits. Malika Parbat (South) also the main peak and the highest in whole of Kaghan. This peak was climbed by Pakistani Rashid Butt and Omer Bin Abdul Aziz in 1998, however, Rashid Butt fell to his death while climbing down the mountain. This mountain was earlier climbed by the Europeans and also attempted by Pakistanis including myself. Malika Parbat (Cresta), Malika Parbat Fore Summit and Malika Parbat (North) climbed by two expeditions in 2012 summer season, but there is a controversy going on between the two claimanants. Malika Parbat's all summits are technical in nature, therefore, should not be attempted by those who are merely trekkers.
