Lakes in Pakistan- Shonter Lake - Neelum Valley

This is a small but very beautiful natural lake. It is located in the Neelum Valley of Azad Kashmir. It is also called the Jewel of Neelum because of its unique beauty and spectacular view.

The trek to the lake is a bit tough so is only recommended for regular trekkers. The Neelum Valley from  Kel divides into two sub valleys namely- Shonter valley and Graze Valley. From the Domail Bala ( Neelum Side) it takes around a day long climbing to reach to this lake. After this point there are very residents. You might find few summer huts of locals on the lake. The lake has a breathtaking beauty and is surrounded by mountains with mighty heights.

Horses can also be hired from Kel and now there is also a jeep route to reach the lake. The other beautiful sites nearby which you will visit on your way to the Shonter lake are the Shonter and the Kamri Pass. Neelum valley in Azad Kashmir region of Pakistan is well known to the tourits. This is one region of the world which is home to so many lakes which attract tourists. Shonter lake is one of these lakes too which receives many visitors every year.
