The Lake

The Lake

This lake has a background of tragedy and misfortune. Do you know where this lake is and what the background is?

Answer: Indeed this is the lake which was created in the lower Jehlum valley during the earthquake
disaster of 2005. The earth from the mountains dropped down and blocked the water of a small river
which created a dangerous situation. It is said that the authorities had to use force to unblock
the mouth of the newly-created lake to release the water which was gathering and threatened the
local villages.

Yes, during the earthquake there was a landslide which took a lot of earth to the bottom and blocked the water. There was nowhere for the water to go and there was a possibility of the whole valley drowning. So they brought in heavy machinery and explosives ro make an opening for the water to flow.
