Attabad Lake (Gilgit-Baltistan)


Attabad Lake, also known as Gojal Lake, is located in Gojal valley in Gilgit Baltistan at the distance of 122 km from Gilgit main city on Karakoram Highway. It was created accidently in January 2010 by a massive landsliding in Attabad village.

After the destruction of Karakoram Highway, a 24 km portion of Karakoram Highway including 7 km long five tunnels is a world class masterpiece in moutain crossing trek.

Its bluish green water surrounded by brown color hills is very attractive and splendid. Crossing the lake before new construction of tunnel was one the best adventure of one's life.
