Saiful Malook Lake

Altitude: 3,224 metres (10,578 feet)

Saif-ul-Maluk Lake is located near Naran, at the northern end of Kaghan Valley, and spans 2.5 square kilometers at an elevation of more than 10,000 feet. It is one of Pakistan's tallest and most picturesque lakes, with a depth of roughly 50 feet below the surface. Snow-capped mountains surround the lake, and melting glaciers from these peaks feed the lake, serving as the Kunhar River source. A 30-minute jeep trip from Naran Valley will take you to the lake.

Locals will tell you the story of Saif-ul-Maluk, in which the Prince of Persia fell in love with a fairy princess at this particular lake. Visitors are also entertained by the notion that fairies visit the lake on moonlight evenings. Daytime activities at the lake include taking a boat trip on the quiet and icy waters or having a snowball battle, and you can even camp near the lake's shore beneath the stars.

Attabad Lake

Location: Hunza Valley, Gilgit-Baltistan

Altitude: 2,559 metres (8,398 feet)

Another gorgeous high-altitude lake in Pakistan is found in Gojal, Hunza Valley. While the lake is natural, it was not even on the map until a landslide in 2010 blocked a stretch of the Hunza River, resulting in the formation of Attabad Lake. Because of its proximity to a town, the lake is also known as Gojal Lake.

Attabad Lake, the biggest lake in Gilgit-Baltistan, covers 13.5 square kilometers and is popular with national and international tourists. The lake's azure waters are 358 feet deep, and the leading sports enjoyed by visitors with a mountain background include boating, swimming, and jet skiing.

Altitude: 2,637 metres (8,650 feet)

Satpara Lake is Pakistan's biggest freshwater lake, spanning 2.5 square kilometers. The Satpara Stream pours into the lake, supplying the Satpara Dam, which gives fresh water to Skardu Valley.
