Satpara Lake is a natural lake near Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan,
which supplies water to Skardu Valley. It is fed by the Satpara Stream.
Satpara Lake is situated at an elevation of 2,636 meters (8,650 ft) above sea level and is spread over an area of 2.5 km².
Since 2003, Satpara Dam is being constructed downstream of the lake and, upon completion, will enlarge the size of Satpara Lake.
How to get thereThe lake is 9 kilometers from Skardu, capital city of Baltistan, and takes about 20 minutes by jeep to reach. Another one hour drive by jeep will take you up to an altitude of 16,000 feet and finally to the second largest plateau in the world, popularly known as Deosai Plain.
A road, parts of it already paved, runs past the lake and 6km to 8km on to Satpara village. Roughly 25km beyond the village, the track crosses the Ali Malik Mar pass onto the Deosai Plains. The most popular trekking route goes from Sakrdu up Burji Nala, to the west of Hargisar.
