Rama Lake is a lake near Astore in Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. It is on the top of the beautiful Astore Valley, with a light cover of oak trees and other greenery. There is not much greenery (as of 2013) due to illegal loging of the forest by locals

and "timber mafia". The region has low average rainfall and low vegetation cover hence the loss of forest cover is of a very serious concern.

Location

On the way to Rama Lake, from Astore Valley, there are three small lakes called Sarot in the local Shina language.
Before 2005, Astore was a Tehsil of District Diamir, the 5th District of Gilgit-Baltistan. Now Astore has been upgraded to a District.

There are more than 50 small beautiful villages in Astore. Some of which are Chilm, Bubin, Gorikot, Eid Ghah, Fina, Bulen, Chongra and Pari Shing.

Rama valley

Rama Valley is thickly forested with huge pine, cedar, fir and juniper trees. The valley is about 3300 meters (10800 feet) above sea level and thus is snow covered for 7–8 months of the year. In summer, it becomes lush green; conditions favored by local shepherds.

From here one can trek to east side of the Nanga Parbat (also known as the Killer Mountain), the world's 8th highest mountain.

Access

Lake Rama is near Astore village. On KKH after passing the exit for Fairy Meadows keep driving for about another 20 minutes. When you come across the sign for Astore turn right there, keep going for another 2–3 hours. You will arrive at the village of Astore. The valley is popular for camping in the summers. Road towards Rama lake now has been cemented and tourists can reach there without undue difficulty.

People
