Such a gorgeous little lake - or dam? Didn’t hike down because it was an insanely hot day but from the road it looked like someone had painted the floor with shades of blue. Wish I could have stayed longer...

Satpara Lake is a natural lake near Skardu, with clear blue waters. Fishing and boating are common activities on the lake. There are many places to pull over and have a picnic, or you can eat at the handful of restaurants scattered along the roadside.

Satpara is a beautiful natural lake .. If you are coming from Deosai National Park towards Skardu City, you will come across this lake. Blue water really makes this lake look awesome

The lake is just outside the Skardu city and is quite overrated - nothing worth making that trip. Perhaps, a short stop on your way from Skardu to Deosai is fine but nothing more than that.
