Dwa Saray Mountain Peak is also called Dwa Saro Ghar because of its two heads. Dwa Saray Mountain is an administrative unit of Manglawar. Dwa Saray is situated on the border between Manglawar Swat, Buner, and Shangla. Dwa Saray is considered as 2nd Highest Peak in District Swat right after Falak Sar (Elevation: 5,957 metres or 19,544 ft), There were no data available online so I decided to plan a hike and will note everything.


Dwa Saro can be submitted with four routes:

1. Kalil Kandao Route

Kalil is a village in District Buner. It takes 6 hours hiking to reach the summit when you start your journey from Kalil top or pass (another hill station located in mountain boundary between Swat and Buner. [Source: Wikipedia]

2. Pir Baba Route

On the name of famous Islamic Preacher Pir Baba is also a village in District Buner. This route is almost the same as the route of Kalil Kandao. [More details will be added later]

3. Banjot Route

This route goes around from the village of Manglawar. Manglawar is 8 km away from Swat main city Mingora. It takes one hour to go from Manglawar to Banjot. Right after Banjot, we can go further via 4×4 Jeeps on Gulay etc. This route is long and takes time to reach the top. But you will see a lot of villages on your way.

4. Shingrai Kas Route

This is the route that I have a toke and I believe is the third easiest route to summit Dwa Saro. If we count Pir Baba route is a little longer than Kalil Kandao which is probably the easiest but very short. I use this Shingrai Kas route so I will put in every detail here.
