Lakes of Pakistan – Chitta Katha Lake
|Shonter Valley, Azad Kahmir||3,800 m12,467 ft|
This is one of the most beautiful lakes of Pakistan. It is located in Shonter Valley , Azad Kahmir. The snow capped mountains of Kashmir surround this enchanted lake and the flowers on the sides in summers bring added beauty. One can reach this lake through Kel in Neelum valley.
The road to the lake can only be taken on jeep. It is around 30 kilometers from Kel to the Chitta Katha Lake. If you want to trek, it is better to stay the night at the Utli Domel village and start the journey early morning from there. The climbing uphill can take around 5 to 6 hours time. One has to be physically and mentally fit to do this climbing. Horses can also be hired for the purpose from the village.
This lake is only accessible in July and August; rest of the year time it is covered with snow and trying to climb up there can be really dangerous. However, being such a beautiful lake, people come to visit this place very frequently in summers. This lake is a favorite tourist attraction for not only the tourists from outside Pakistan, but also for the tourists visiting from within the country.
