Rama Lake

Rama Lake

Rama Lake is a lake near Astore in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It is on the top of the beautiful Astore Valley, with a light cover of oaktrees and other greenery. There is not much greenery (as of 2013) due to illegal loging of the forest by locals and “timber mafia”. The region has low average rainfall and low vegetation cover hence the loss of forest cover is of a very serious concern.

On the way to Rama Lake, from Astore Valley, there are three small lakes called Sarot in the local Shina language.

Before 2005, Astore was a Tehsil of District Diamir, the 5th District of Gilgit-Baltistan. Now Astore has been upgraded to a District.

There are more than 50 small beautiful villages in Astore. Some of which are Chilm, Bubin, Gorikot, Eid Ghah, Fina, Bulen, Chongra and Pari Shing.

Rupal Valley

Rupal Valley

The Rupal Valley is located in the Astore District of Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region. It lies just south of 8,126 meter Nanga Parbat and is popular for treks to the mountain’s Rupal Face, one of highest mountain faces in the world. Rupal Village is located in the valley at35°13′38.76″N 74°42′26.60″E. The Rupal is home to Shina speaking herdsmen, who have grazed and harvested wood in the valley for hundreds of years. Overgrazing has caused some loss of vegetation, leading to wind-blown dust. Towering peaks on either side of the valley make it a breathtaking, albeit remote destination for adventurers. Most treks to the Rupal Valley begin in the village of Tarashing, at the southwestern terminus of the Astore Valley.
