This lake located within Hunza is probably one of the clearest colors of blue you will ever see. Combine that with the mountain backdrop, there is probably nothing like it in the world.
Located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the city is the capital of the Chitral District. The city is drenched in history because of its role as formerly being part of a princely state. Combine that with a good dose of beautiful natural scenery and you have something for everyone.
