Dudipatsar Lake is the most beautiful lake of Kaghan Valley. it is surrounded by snow clad peaks.
It lies in the extreme north of the Kaghan Valley. It is about a four hour drive from the Main Town
of Naran. The road is not entirely accessible for cars, even Jeeps. From Besal onwards visitors
have to trek about 6–8 hours in vast alpine meadows to reach the lake. The first four hour trek is
the hardest part of a visit. The best season to visit is between July and September. The trek
consists of a sometimes steep climb while at other places it passes through huge flat valleys
but at all times it is filled with amazing sights and scenes. The lake’s water is a beautiful
greenish blue and very cold. Dudipatsar is also close to Lake Lulusar which is the main contributor
to the Kunhar River. At a distance from the lake lies the Babusar Pass which is the end of the 150
km long Kaghan Valley.
The whole area is private property but declared national park by Government of Pakistan.
The deep blue Dudipat Sar, at 3,800 meters, is surrounded by green hills at about 4,800 meters,
with snow patches in the shady hollows. This lake is very little visited by people and its natural
beauty is still very much protected.
