I took over 350 photos with my FZ10 on my tour, and would create a website with the stories behind the photos and travelling tips. I'm posting a few photos here..

Lake Saiful Muluk is considered by many as the most beautiful lake in the world. It is located at an altitude of 10500 feet.. sorrounded by glaciers. The left mountain in the photos is the "Malika Parbat", urdu for "Queen of Mountains", 17156 feet high. Local people believe in a strange and interesting story, which led to its name, Saiful Muluk. Some professional story tellers would tell you their version of the story for a small fee. It is a very popular tourist attraction in Pakistan.. We camped by the lake and spent the night there. I still can't forget the view of the sky from there.. I never saw so many starts which are not visible from my city Karachi, which is below sea level.

I placedmy irritating trasparent name as clear photos of Saiful Muluk are always being searched for by travel websites.

Local kids... It hurts to remember that they were always begging for money.. It was amazing to seethem walk on the glaciers barefooted.

This was taken at another place. This is how the fruit and drinks are kept cold.. cold water from the river is directed the desired way using wooden planks, and made to fall over the stuff. This is a shop for the tourists.

Another view... those are mangoes. Pakistani mangoes are very popular for their taste. Pakistanis love the fruit, and it is regarded as the King of Fruits.

Wonderful shots of fantastic terrain! There is a faded greenish tint to many of them. Is that natural to the area?

All very nice, but the first is simply stunning - I can see why the travel sites would love it! It looks like a place you would never want to leave once you were there. The shots of the produce being "cooled" are also very interesting - I guess necessity is the mother of invention!

Thanks for sharing these!:|
