By saying that this is one of the best places to visit in Pakistan is not particularly wrong. This is the valley of KPK and KPK has the heart of all the beauty in Pakistan. This is a prepossessing tourism spot in Pakistan which you essentially visit. The valley is not so long, it is only 35 km and located in Upper Dir, KPK. The drive from Islamabad to Kumrat is almost 9 to 10 hours as it is 386km away from the capital.
Resources are pretty good and people are very welcoming. There is a raw nature/beauty there, a kind of attractive adventure more than serene scenes. Moreover, there is Kala Chashma, a waterfall, and so many other things to see.
This lake is somewhat close to Kumrat. So if you are planning to visit Kumrat valley, you should go to see this bowl-shaped lake too. It is jammed in between the beautiful mountains, that’s why it resembles a bowl and glaciers melt in summers to fill it with sparkling water.
The route to this lake is quite steep and rough-rugged. To actually enjoy the astonishing view of Katora lake, you have to trek for 2 days. It’s quite a tiring task for people who do not like hiking. Land pollution is little to 0 percent as not so many people visit this lake.
Just like Lake Saif ul malook, the people of Kalash actually believe that fairies live and land on this lake. Furthermore, they assumed that when they die their souls go to this lake. This lake is located in Kalash valley. So, if you visit Kalash, don’t forget bahuk lake at all. The surrounding is full of flora and fauna. And the Kalash community has installed a trail for trekking. It’s a rather acceptably easy trek than Katora.
Kachura lake is one of the most peaceful places to visit in Pakistan. It will give you an unforgettable experience of feeling so much calm and tranquil environment. If you like boating, then you can also avail boat in Kachura Lake. There is no doubt to say that the Nazara Hotel which provides the western view of the Lake is the best one so far in such areas. This lake is the vibrating cordial of Skardu, Gilgit Baltistan. People who visit this place referred to it as a fairyland.
If you ever visit the Chitral district, don’t forget to go to the roof of the world called Shandur Lake. Its importance is magnificent in terms of Polo festivals held each year in July. In reality, it gains a lot of attention during those days of the festive season. The climate is quite stable there, neither too warm nor too cold.
This place is best to visit in winters as it got covered with snow caps during the cold season. It is located near Ushu village, you have to take a jeep drive of 3 hours from Kalam to visit this place. It becomes highly populated during the mid-season because, in recent years, it has become a must-to-see spot for tourists around the globe.
Due to this, there is trash all over the bushy area. But people from outside Pakistan called it a “Living Paradise”. The water there is super freezing to touch. You can avail boats there. But the lag is in the nearby area for not having any availability like hotels, resthouses to stay. You can only stay there by camping or putting tents.
This beautiful place to visit in Pakistan is located in North Swat. There is a drive of almost one or one and hour from Swat Laddu village. This lake presents soothing surroundings and a hopping spot for peace. You can also do trekking there around the green lake. Trekking can take 1/2 hour, but the fragrance of its breeze makes you feel like spending hours around the lake is customary. Also, in recent years, several tourists complain about the trek routes as the flood made them rough and bristly.
This lake will surely offer you many reasons to stay. This aesthetic place is located in Gilgit Baltistan. Trout fish expeditions, motorbike adventures, short walks, hiking, multifold cultural norms, all give you enough to stay in that place.
