Hunza Valley - Ata Baad Lake - Pakistan by hiaamir Hunza Valley - Ata Baad Lake - Pakistan by hiaamir
Attabad Lake, also known as Hunza Lake, is a lake in the Hunza Valley of northern Pakistan created in January 2010 by a landslide dam. The lake was formed due to a massive landslide at Attabad village in Gilgit-Baltistan, 9 miles upstream (east) of Karimabad that occurred on January 4, 2010. The landslide killed twenty people and blocked the flow of the Hunza River for five months. The lake flooding has displaced 6,000 people from upstream villages, stranded (from land transportation routes) a further 25,000, and inundated over 12 miles of the Karakoram Highway. The lake reached 13 miles (21 km) long and over 100 metres in depth by the first week of June 2010 when it began flowing over the landslide dam, completely submerging lower Shishkat and partly flooding Gulmit

The mountains in the background are the Passu Cathedrals standing at 6,106 metres (20,033 ft). They are also called the Sundrenched mountains.

My heart goes out to all those people that were killed by this landslide and flooding and that it displaced so many people...plus stranded them from transportation routes. :(

It is a shame that such beauty comes from such devastation and loss...this is a very beautiful photograph Aamir and so perfectly captured! The mountains are spectacular and I love their name!
