There is so much abundance of lakes in Pakistan, and each one of them is one of a kind and differently beautiful.

The uniqueness of Attabad lake is its colour. Yes, this lake has the bluest water you can ever find anywhere in Pakistan. The lake came into being after a massive landsliding and may disappear later. Anyway, it has attracted a number of foreign tourists and is definitely one of the most beautiful lakes of Pakistan.

Well, this post couldn’t be complete without this one. I don’t really understand how I can describe the beauty of this place. It can simply be said that if there is a possibility of existence of a fairyland, this would be it. I call this “the queen of lakes”. Why? Because the glaciers on the overwhelming mountains surrounding this gorgeous lake look like a crown placed over the lake.
