Lulusar Lake

Lulusar Lake

Lulusar Lake has a very enchanting beauty and its view remains in the mind of tourist for a long time. 48 kilometers away from Naran, on Naran-Babusar road, wreathed in blue and gold wild flowers, it is the main source of river Kunhar.

Lulusar Lake also known as Lulusir is a lake at 3,410 m (11,190 ft), is the primary headwaters of the Kunhar River. It flows southwest through the entire length of Kaghan Valley passing Jalkhand, Naran, Kaghan, Jared, Paras and Balakot until its confluence with the Jhelum River.  The river then flows through the entire Kaghan Valley through Jalkhand, Naran, Kaghan, Jared, Paras and Balakot.

Near Gittidas is the 3,353m (11,000) feet high Lulusar Lake out of which river Kunhar issues anew with redoubled strength to flow down the valley first as placid blue stream and then a roaring torrent until it joins the Jhelum river.

Lulusar is the Reminiscent of those 55 participants of 1857 war of independence who had been arrested near Lulusar. This lake is much bigger in size as compared to other lakes around the valley.

It is surrounded by snowcapped hills whose purple and white forms are reflected in the green-blue waters of the silent lake, making it one of the most beautiful spots in the valley.

Lake Lalusar offers a splendid opportunity for fishing in dark blue waters surrounded by high mountains. The serene beauty and peace, which permeates the Kaghan Valley, makes this an ideal spot for relaxation and reflection.

From Gittidas the road goes on through the Babusar Pass into Gilgit.

This road is one of the highest roads in the world. In the summer when the water of lakes reflects like a mirror, a large number of visitors from different areas of the country come to enjoy the enchanting views.
