SHANGRILA LAKE - SKARDU, PAKISTAN

Shangrila Lake is also known as Lower Kachura Lake. It is a part of the Shangrila resort. Shangrilla Lake is located at a drive of about 20 minutes from Skardu. It is a popular tourist destination, and has a unique restaurant that is built on the fuselage of an aircraft that had crashed nearby.

Shangrila was established in 1983 with the opening of the first Resort Hotel in Skardu, Baltistan. It was named “heaven on earth” because of its spectacular beauty,and breathtaking view and peaceful atmosphere. Shangrila Resort Hotel was founded by the late Brig. Muhammad Aslam Khan, the first commander of the Northern Scouts of the Pakistan Army.

Shangrila roughly means "Eden', and the pictures show that the place is not at all inferior to the Paradise..
