Attabad Lake

In 2010, a massive landslide blocked the flow of Hunza River flowing along Karakurram Highway. Several people lost their lives and thousands were displaced.

Now a days, it is tourist spot and the water is unbelievably blue.

The landslide also affected the highway and Pakistan-China had to build several tunnels to keep the road functional.
