Whole Year

Attabad Lake (عطا آباد جھیل‎) is a lake in Gojal Valley, Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan. The lake was created in January 2010 as a result of the Attabad Disaster. Part of Karakorum Highway was submerged due to this landslide. On 14 September 2015, Prime Minister of Pakistan performed inauguration of realigned 24 km (15 mi) patch of KKH containing five tunnels at Attabad Barrier Lake. The five tunnels, together seven kilometres (4.3 mi) long, are part of the 24 km (15 mi) long portion of the Karakorum Highway (KKH) which was damaged in 2010 due to land sliding at Attabad.
