Dudipatsar Lake (دودی پت سر جھیل‎), also known as Dudipat Lake, is a lake encircled by snow clad peaks in Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park. The lake lies in the north end of the Kaghan Valley, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The lake’s water is greenish blue hue and very cold, at an elevation of 3,800 metres (12,500 ft). The surrounding mountains, with snow patches in the shady dales, average around 4,800 metres (15,700 ft) in elevation. Their natural habitat is in the Western Himalayan alpine shrub and meadows eco-region. The lake and its wetlands habitats are of significant ecological importance for resident fauna and migratory waterfowl. Some of the park’s fauna includes the snow leopard, black bear, marmot, weasel, lynx, leopard, Himalayan snowcock, and snow partridge.
