Katora Lake Upper Dir Kumrat Valley

Katora Lake which means "bowl" in Pashto. It was named after the lakes resemblance to a bowl shape. It is an alpine glacial lake located in the upper reaches of Jahaz banda, Kumrat valley Upper Dir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. The lake is fed by the surrounding melting glacier waters. It is one of the most beautiful lakes in the region and visited by adventurous hikers every year in the summer season. Katora Lake (also called Jaz Dand) is situated in Lamoti region of Kumrat valley, Upper Dir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, of Pakistan at an elevation of 11,500 ft approximately from the sea level. The lake is surrounded by snow clad high mountains and pristine flowers of diverse species have covered its margins. The trail to this lake is a memorable, as one comes across lush green forests, fragrant flowers and crystal clear springs and gushing waterfalls. The only sound which one hears is either the screeching of your jogging shoes or birds. It is located in such a far-flung area where permanent human living is very tough and next to impossible. To one side, the face of the lake is open and the shimmering water of the lake spill out, in the form of an attractive foamy waterfall which creates an amazing scenario. The best season to visit is August/September however June or July is also good but do expect random showers due to monsoon.
