SWAT: The Mahodand Lake is one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country, but due to rugged terrain was not easily traversible until this summer.
Due to the newly built link road, this artistic endowment of nature -where the unspoiled natural beauty mingles with serenity and calmness - is now swarming with tourists.
Mahodand Lake means ‘fishing lake’ and is located some 40km from the Kalam valley.
Once only accessible if you had a four-wheel drive, the lake is now easy to travel to for tourists and serves as a beautiful picnic spot.
The scenery along the route comprises roaring waterfalls, spectacular landscapes, vast green meadows and calm lakes which add to the thrill of the journey and as a tourist rightly puts it, make the experience an "adventurous" one.
