Lulusar Lake

Lulusar is group of mountains near the Naran Valley in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (NWFP) province of Pakistan. It is famous for the large lake situated there which is a popular tourist attraction. The word “sar” means “top” or “peak” in Pashto. It is located at N35.0804 E73.9266, at a height of 11,200 ft (3,410 m) above sea level.
The lake is the main source of the Kunhar river, which flows through the entire Kaghan Valley through Jalkhand, Naran Valley, Kaghan, Jared, Paras and Balakot until it joins the Jhelum River. The lake is 48 kilometers away from Naran, on the Naran-Babusar road. Lulusar marks the historic place where 55 participants of the 1857 war of independence were arrested.
The lake is much bigger than other lakes around the valley, and is surrounded by snowcapped hills, making it a natural tourist attraction. From Gittidas, the Naran-Babusar road, one of the highest in the world, goes through the Babusar Pass to Gilgit. In the summer, when the water reflects its surroundings like a mirror, a large number of both domestic and international visitors make the lake a destination stop.
