Karambar Lake

Karambar Lake, also known as Qurumbar Lake, is a high altitude lake located in Ishkomen, a Tehsil of District Ghizer in Gilgit–Baltistan, near the boundary of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan. It is the 31st highest lake in the world and 2nd highest in Pakistan a height of 14,121 feet (4,304 m) and one of the highest biologically active lakes on earth.
The lake is located at a distance of 205 km from Gilgit. Some (fabricated) maps clearly show that the entire span of lake is situated within the borders of Gilgit–Baltistan but in fact it is part of the Park|Broghil Valley]] of Chitral, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. Although, some people say since the flow of Karambar waters itself dims the confusion about lake’s location as lake flows down towards Ishkoman but this theory does not hold water as mere flow of water in a direction does not grant ownership of lake to that downstream area.
The approximate length of the lake is 3.9 kilometers (2.4 mi), width is 2 km and, average depth is 52 meters (171 ft) .
Karambar Lake is the deepest lake in the valley with a maximum and mean depth of 55m and 17.08m respectively and is spread over a surface area of 263.44 hectares (2,634,400 m2) and discharges into Karambar valley of Gilgit Baltistan. Water clarity level is 13.75,which is the highest value ever recorded in the literature of lakes in Pakistan.
