DESTINATION Lulusar Lake-Pakistan | By Ch. Faisal Mahmood
Lulusar is one of the largest lake of Pakistan situated in the Naran Valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. In Pashtu Language the word ‘sar’ means ‘top’ or ‘peak’.
Actually Lulusar is the name of the group of mountains that contain the lake which is 48 kilometers away from Naran on the Naran-Babusar road. It will interest our history enthusiast that Lulusar marks the proud place where 55 participants of the 1857 War of Independence were arrested.
The lake is surrounded by snowcapped mountains, making it a natural tourist attraction. In Summers, when the its surface reflects its surroundings sharply like a mirror, large number of domestic and foreign visitors make it a popular destination.
Lalusar Lake is the main source of the Kunhar River, which flows through the entire Kaghan Valley through Jalkhand, Naran Valley, Kaghan, Jared, Paras and Balakot until it joins the Jhelum River.¡
