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.
