Thus it is little wonder that it has continued attracting many tourists from different parts of the world.  Though Pakistan has been able to boast about this awesome provision of nature, it is interesting to note that this is not a lake that can easily be located like any other lake around the globe.

Upon getting to a village that is located closest to the lake it can take up to seven hours of walking before finally reaching the its location. But this is mainly due to the fact that it is located in a mountainous area where there are no forms of human habitation to this day. Therefore, in order to locate it, there are tour guides who normally take tourists to this place. Some people can hire horses to make the trip more manageable but its been estimated that even if this is done, one will still have to walk up to 30 to 35 percent of the remaining distance.
