Hangu Lake


Located at 13000 feet above sea level, the newly formed Hangu Lake (not Changu Lake) is nearly a kilometer long. Tucked within barren mountain slopes, strewn with rocks and pebbles and devoid of any vegetation, the Hangu Lake seems to be placed on Martian surface. Fed by glacial waters, the lake reflects the shadows of the surrounding mountains.

The advent of winter brings flocks of migratory birds from across the Himalayas to the shallow waters of Hangu Lake. The Indian Army’s memorial to the Forgotten Soldier is located on a Hill Top beside the Hangu Lake. Truly! There could be no better place on earth for this memorial of the martyrs.
