5. Lake Attabad
Lake Attabad, which was formed following a massive landslide in 2010, is one of the largest freshwater reservoirs. The water of this lake, which is 22 km long and 220 feet deep, has stagnated in a narrow mountain pass due to the stagnation of the Hunza River, which is formed by melting of the Karakoram glaciers.
The turquoise water of the lake, at the signal of strong winds blowing in the narrow pass, creates waves on the surface of the water in a very attractive way. The lake has flooded more than 18km of the Karakoram Highway, paralyzing traffic. Now the only way to reach the village of Husseini is through crossing the lake by boat.
