Upper Kachura lake is a miracle of nature, peace and tranquility keeps one spell bound. Heaven on Earth you can say.
You can say one of the most mesmerizing place in Skardu is Upper Kachra lake.
Its a natural lake with clear water and has a depth of almost 60 meters.
Water was very cold but was surprised to see local boys jumping and taking bath in chilled water.
Upper Kachura is a raw beauty. For us it was an exciting experience to climb up and down to reach the lake, We enjoyed eating apricots and Mulberry.
Believe me those wild fruits were delicious in taste.
While walking through a small village we saw people working in fields.
They grow potatoes, apricots, apples, grapes, wheat and much more.
Balti people are very hospitable and friendly. Loved talking to few kids who were picking wild cherries.
You can enjoy fishing, boating, hiking here.
Now I am taking you to the pictorial journey from Skardu to Upper Kachura. Enjoy scenic beauty of Skardu.
Road side view. When we crossed check post of Skardu.
lovely weather it was. Rain started unexpectedly.
We saw a number of Cherry farms. Trees loaded with red and black cherries. It was an awesome view.
A hanging bridge, for us it was an amazing bridge. One Vehicle at a time was allowed to cross the bridge. But it was beautiful.
This is lower Kachura lake or Shangrilla. We saw this while going up towards Upper Kachura. (I will post detail pictures later)
Beautiful and breathtaking view of Lake.
My Nephew was rowing the boat with the local boat man.
