Promotion of Tourism in Pakistan (Lake Series) (2006-6)

Lake Saiful Maluk has a touch of the unreal about it, nestling 3,206 meters high in the shadow of the Malika Parbat (Queen of the mountains - 5,291 m). You can go fishing or boating in the lake and hear the local legend about Prince Saiful Maluk who fell in love with a fairy.
A little short of the place where the Urak Valley begins and 10 kms from Quetta is the Hanna Lake, where benches and pavilions on terraces have been provided. Golden fish in the lake comes swimming right up to the edge of the lake. A little distance away the waters of the lake take on a greenish blue tint. Right where the water ends, pine trees have been planted on the grass filled slopes. The greenish - blue waters of the lake provide a rich contrast to the sandy brown of the hills in the background. One can promenade on the terraces.

This is a sari (Smallest lake) but remains full with water from March to May and become dry in June it is spectacular place in the Himalaya range and its height is 8900 feet; ft is nice place for camping, one can view Malika Parbat (Queen of the mountains -17500 ft) in the North and Musaka Musailah (14200 ft) in the west.
