The Neelum River

The Neelum River  is a river in the Kashmir region of India and Pakistan.

The Neelam River originates from Krishansar Lake  in the vicinity of Sonamarg and runs northwards to Badoab village where it meets a tributory from the Dras side and runs westwards along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. It is fed by many glacial tributory streams on its way. It enters Pakistan Occupied Kashmir in the Gurais sector of the Line of Control, and then runs west until it meets the Jhelum River north of Muzzafarabad.  The Neelum River is 245 kilometers long, it covers 50 kilometers in Jammu and Kashmir and rest 195 kilometers in Azad Kashmir.

Variety of fishes
There are different kinds of fishes found in abbandance in the Neelum River. As the river almost entirely runs across the Line of Control, being the main cause for Kashmir conflict there is a feeling of uncertainty among the inhabitants, many of them have emigrated[4] to safer places, which has left the river banks scarcely populous and kept the river in perfect conditions for growth of fish. The most famous among the different variety of fishes found in Neelum River are: 

Brown trout (sulmo trutta fario) 

Rainbow trout (sulmo gairdnri) 

Snow trout (shizothorax) 



Neelum Valley
The Neelum Valley is a Himalayan gorge in Gilgit–Baltistan of Pakistan, along which the Neelum River flows. This green and fertile valley is 250 km in length and stretches its way from Muzaffarabad all the way to Athmuqam and beyond to Taobutt. It is one of the most attractive tourists places, like Swat and Chetral, but due to poor road system is yet veiled to the outside world. This area was badly affected by the 2005 earthquake and was cut off from the outside world as the roads and paths were filled with rubble. Now construction of an international standard road is in progress. Neelum has had a great importance before and after the partition of India due to its beauty. Sharada Peeth was once most advanced and international standard institution during the Hindu and Buddhist era. 

It is named after the river Neelum, which is famous for its crystal bluish water and that is the reason for its name Neelum. Some traditionalists[who?] say that the valley is named after a precious stone neelum (sapphire). It enters in the Neelum from Taobutt and continues its journey through narrows and mountains different streams in the way add its strength and finely tributes into river Jehlum at a spot at Domail in Muzaffarabad.

There are two entrances for Neelum valley, one Neelum Road by Muzaffarabad and the other by Kaghan the Julkhad Road. Generally Neelum valley starts just after Muzaffarabad but in political division the area from Muzaffarabad to Chelhana is named Kotla valley in election division. District Neelum starts from Chelhana and goes to Taobutt. The valley is famous for its lush greenery, fir forests, slop hills and waterfalls. Specially in summer a large number of tourists visit the valley. Azad jummu and Kashmir tourism department and Forest Division Keren constructed Guest Houses in most important points. Good strandard hotels are also available in almost places.

Shardadesh is a name for the drainage basin of the Neelum River. The name is a form of Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, music and the arts in Hinduism.

In the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, the construction work on the 330 MW Kishanganga Hydroelectric Plant project has started, after being defunct for eighteen years.[6][7] Recently, the project was awarded to Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) with a timeline of seven years. The 330 MW Kishanganga hydro-electric power project involves damming of Kishanganga or Neelam River and the proposed 37 metre reservoir will submerge some parts of the Gurez valley of India.[8] The water of Kishen Ganga River will be diverted through a 24 kilometre tunnel dug through the mountains to Bandipore where it will join the Wular Lake and then Jhelum River.[8]

Similarly, Pakistan is constructing the 969 MW Neelum–Jhelum Hydropower Plant; the country has placed the project in the hands of a Chinese consortium.[6] Pakistan claims that the Indian dam project will violate the Indus Waters Treaty and has pursued formal arbitration proceedings against India over the matter.[9][10]

  2. The invention of the dynamo laid the foundation to discovery of other electric power conversion instruments such as the electric motor, the alternator which uses alternating current and the rotary converter. In later years, Faraday built a rectangular rotator which consisted of magnetic field regions of opposite directions. Some of the earliest alternators were built by Lord Kelvin and Sebastian Ferranti which produced frequencies of between 100 and 300 Hz; though in 1882 J.E.H Gordon, a British electrician built large two face alternating current generators.
