A miracle of stillness, epitome of perfect shades of blue, a beauty in tragedy, Attabad lake is Pakistan’s largest artificial lake created by a severe landslide in Attabad Village, Gojal valley back in 2010. Bluest of all,this lake connects the glorious Hunza valley to the Serene Passu in Gojal valley.The sangfroid 45 minute boat ride in the lake to the nirvana on the other end is the an experience unforgettable. As the boat meanders through the turquoise colours lake lapped by high rugged colossal mountains the journey seems to arrest in your heart forever where every scene tends to have multiple makeover having an instant display of splendour. During the summer the warm climate soothes the soul and the glistening sunshine shines onto the sparkling still water where the only ripples created are because of the boat. Emotions intensified you come across one of the wonders of the majestic Passu Cathedrals rise dramatically behind the fluttering clouds. In winters even you can walk over frozen 10 km pathway of Attabad lake.
