Attabad Lake is a lake in Gojal Valley, Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan, an administrative region of Pakistan. The lake was created in January 2010 as a result of the Attabad Disaster. The lake was formed due to a massive landslide at Attabad Village in Hunza Valley in Gilgit-Baltistan, 14 kilometres (9 mi) upstream (east) of Karimabad that occurred on 4 January 2010/ The landslide killed twenty people and blocked the flow of the Hunza River for five months. The subdivision of Gojal has the greatest number of flooded buildings, over 170 houses, and 120 shops. The residents also had shortages of food and other items due to the blockage of the Karakoram Highway.
Attabad Lake has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in Gilgit-Baltistan offering activities like boating, jet skiing, fishing and other recreational activities.
