The Karakoram Highway is simply one of the best roads in the world to drive. We Have been on a road that really excited us with Incredible views, death defying drops. It holds the record as the highest paved road in the world reaching an altitude of 4,693m and cuts through some of the most dramatic mountain scenery on the planet, cutting through three of the world’s highest ranges; the Karakoram, Himalaya and Hindu Kush mountains. Its construction started in 1966 and took 13 years to complete.
Phander is a beautiful and magical place, views of Phander lake from the isolated PTDC motel capture one's attention. Feeling the cool breeze sitting up at the motel can get anyone in trance and one can sit for hours watching it. The view becomes even more attractive at sunrise when the rays spread upon the natural water of the lake.
Now in Attabad, we woke up early and started packing. We were served with a delightful breakfast by “Mr. Rasul Din” before leaving the camp. We reached at Attabad Lake in the span of one (1) hour. By this time, there was a huge landslide to cross before reaching Attabad Lake. We went up the huge boulders of the land slide to reach the lake. I dragged rather than push- ride up to reach the top of the boulder.
