Bagh: was part of the Poonch province in the Dogra days. After 1947 it
became a sub-division (Thesil) of the Poonch district only to become a
district in its own right in 1988. Linked to Muzaffarabad by two roads,
one via Sudhan Gali (80Km) and the other through Kohala (97Km). It is
situated 46Km from Rawalakot. Bagh is well known for its confectionery and
Dhirkote: is a facinating and charming place located 24Km from Kohala.
Situated at 1676m above sea-level, Dhirkote possesses an extremely
pleasant and healthy climate. The place is very popular among people
mainly due to easy access, suitable altitude and beautiful landscape with
Deodar and kail forests.
Neela Butt: is located 6Km from Dhirkote at an altitude of 2000m above
sea-level. It was at this place on 23rd August 1947, the local rebels,
aiming to get independence, met and made decisions about the liberation of
Kashmir from Doga rule. Neela Butt is regarded as the birth-place of the
independence movement and hence the AJK government has built a memorial

distance from Bagh. This scenic spot also serves as a base camp for those
going hiking/trekking to the nearby 3045m high mountain, Ganga Choti
