These three lakes are Upper Kachura, Lower Kachura, and the less-known Zambakha Lake. Upper and lower Kachura Lake is at an altitude of 2,500 meters. Upper Kachura Lake is mostly unexplored by tourists because of its rough terrain. Lower Kachura Lake, popularly known as Shangrila Lake, is nature’s gem in the beautiful north of Pakistan. Zambakha Lake is in the tiny village of Zambakha next to Shangri-la. The lakes are at different elevations in the Karakoram mountain range in the western Himalayas and the River Indus basin in Gilgit Baltistan. Kachuras, with its rich flora featuring western Himalayan subalpine conifer forests and its orchards of wild apricot – Prunus armeniaca, is the top tourist attraction. Lower Kachura: known as Shangrila, has its name derived from the Tibetan language wherein Shang is a place, ri means mountains and la means pass. The name was first coined by James Hilton, an English novelist in his famous novel, “The Lost Horizon”. Hilton narrates about a plane that crash-landed near a river bed. The monks living nearby took the survivors of the plane crash to a place called Shangrila. The place was described to be a splendor of nature, with mesmerizing beauty and refreshing air.
