  • 10 Must-visit Places in Pakistan

    ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ for your Travel Bucket List"



    Chitta Katha Lake, located in Shounter Valley, Azad Kashmir, at an elevation of 13,500 feet, is the type of lake you have to pinch yourself to believe youโ€™re really staring at it. The unique colour of lake's water changes from emerald green to turquoise blue, depending on the season and the daylight.
    Itโ€™s a glacier-fed lake that is so gorgeous & breathtakingly beautiful. Another thing that makes the lake so special is the glacier-capped steep rocky mountains in the backdrop.
    Chitta Katha Lake, isnโ€™t easy to see, as itโ€™s about a 20 km jeep track from Kel to Upper Domail & than (5.1 km) 8 to 10 hours arduous hike, but itโ€™s gorgeous and completely worth it. The lake is accessible from July to September, but if you go in August, youโ€™ll catch the amazing abundance of wildflowers during the hike.

    Dudipatsar Lake, Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park, Kaghan Valley

    The breathtaking & awe-inspiring Dudipatsar Lake is regarded as sight to see, and rightfully so, located in Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park, in extreme north of Kaghan Valley. The entire trail is located in the national park and is therefore, full of natural diversity. It will also take the hikers through many zones of the park with each zone having distinct flora & fauna.
    The lake & the park are accessible for four months of the year from June to late September. In the summer, when the mirror-like water reflects the scenery, visitors from different parts of the country and from abroad travel to enjoy the enchanting views.
    The trail head / base camp for Dudipatsar is located at Besal, which is about an hour drive from Naran. Nevertheless, from Besal, it's a gruelling 18 Km hike through lush green meadows, streams & waterfalls, which takes about 8 to 10 hours to reach the Lake.
    The fact that it is not easily accessible maintains this picturesque lakeโ€™s peaceful and secluded vibe.

        The small hill top village of Arang Kel, in the midst of lush green meadows, is known as the pearl of Neelam Valley, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. Located above Kel at an altitude of 8,379 feet, the picturesque village of Arang Kel, is accessible by a 2 km (1.2 mi) trek from Kel or by a kilometer long chair left administrated by the Pak Army.

            7) Rainbow Lake, Domail, Minimarg, Gilgit Baltistan

            The crown jewel of Minimarg & Domail is the beautiful Rainbow Lake, that takes on different colours at different times of the day. The water, which is crystal clear, is sourced from the streams and springs that course their way down the mountains. The setting of the surrounding majestic mountain peaks makes the scene almost surreal.
            The picturesque lake presents a perfect picture of serenity & tranquility. It remains frozen over until June, whereas, July & August is a good time to visit the Lake, thatโ€™s when the emerald green / turquoise blue glacial water is at its prettiest, which makes it a hit with photographers.
            Final word, spectacularly beautiful is perhaps the best way to describe Rainbow Lake.

                  Taobat is a charming village sits on the banks of the River Neelam, in Neelam Valley, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan. This unbelievably beautiful riverside hamlet is the last station of Neelam Valley located at distance of 200 kilometers (120 mi) from Muzaffarabad & 39 kilometers (24 mi) from Kel.
                  The drive from Kel to Taobat is certainly the best one in the world in terms of its mesmerising scenic beauty which will leave you in awe. The route offers pretty villages (Janwai, Sardari & Hilmat) with wooden cottages, enchanting waterfalls, flower-covered meadows, heavily forested mountains & a roaring river. In the end, one realises that sometimes journey is more important than the destination.

                  The breathtakingly gorgeous drive from Kel to Taobat is the real personification of a famous Persian Poet, Amir Khusru's couplet;

                  "Agar Firdaus ba roy-i zamin ast;
                  hamin ast-o hamin ast-o hamin ast,โ€

                  โ€œIf there is Paradise on earth;
                  It is this, it is this, it is this."
