Ansoo Lake

A Tear-Shaped Gem at 4,245 Meters (13,927 ft)


Nestled amidst Naran Valley, Pakistan’s majestic peaks, lies Ansoo Lake, a hidden gem aptly named for its tear-shaped silhouette. This high-altitude lake, perched at a staggering 4,245 meters (13,927 ft), is among the highest in the Himalayan Range and beckons only the most adventurous travelers.


Imagine a crystal-clear lake reflecting the snow-capped peaks that surround it. Unlike its lower-altitude counterparts, Ansoo Lake remains largely untouched, shrouded in mist, and accessible only during the brief summer (July-August) due to heavy snowfall. The surrounding landscape boasts a fragile ecosystem, with temperatures averaging a cool 5-10°C (41-50°F).


Reaching Ansoo Lake is an expedition in itself. 


The journey involves a challenging trek or a thrilling jeep ride on rugged terrain, traversing picturesque valleys and offering breathtaking glimpses of the surrounding peaks. Due to the demanding nature of the route, proper acclimatization and guidance from experienced professionals are essential.

The unique tear shape of Ansoo Lake, measuring approximately 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles) in length, is believed to result from glacial movement. The lake’s remoteness and pristine beauty contribute to its mystique, making it a coveted destination for seasoned hikers and nature enthusiasts.
