Few of the lakes:
As you know in Pakistan there are a lot of lakes in Pakistan such as 👇 and let me try to
The Kachura Lakes are two lakes in the Skardu District of Gilgit-Baltistan, northern Pakistan. The lakes, at 2,500 metres in elevation, are Upper Kachura Lake and Lower Kachura Lake.The latter is also known as Shangrila Lake and is within a tourist resort named Shangrila Resort outside the town of Skardu. I only came at these lakes when i was young but i only remember my dad boating and i was crying😅 because i was afraid of the water at that time😆
Satpara Lake is a natural lake near Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, which supplies water to Skardu Valley. It is fed by the Satpara Stream. Satpara Lake is situated at an elevation of 2,636 meters above sea level. Here we were fishing and as usual i was scared😒 as usual!!!!!

K2 ( second highest in the world):
K2, at 8,611 metres above sea level, is the second highest mountain in the world, after Mount Everest at 8,848 metres. It is located on the China–Pakistan border between Baltistan in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of northern Pakistan.
