One of the most beautiful and magnificent lakes of Pakistan is the awe inspiring Dudipatsar Lake which is also called the Dudipat Lake. The amazing lake, filled with magnificent blue green water, is in a valley of snow covered peaks located in a national park called Lulusar-Dudipatsar. The name of the lake has been created by two local words, “dudi” and “pat“. Dudi is used to mean white in the local language and pat is used to denote high mountains which are common in the area where the lake is located. The last word “sar” is a commonly used word for “lake”. According to locals the name has been given to the great lake due to the heavenly white snow that covers the mountains surrounding the lake. Dudiptsar Lake or Dudipat Lake is located in Lulusar-Dudipatsar National Park. The lake lies in the extreme north of the Kaghan Valley, in the Mansehra District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, in northern Pakistan. The lake's water is a beautiful 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.The lake and park is accessible for four months of the year from June to late September. In the summer, when the mirror-like water reflects the scenery, visitors from different regions of the country and from abroad travel to enjoy the enchanting views.
