Sadpara Lake is Skardu Valley's main lake, supplying water for Skardu town, and reputedly one of the most picturesque lakes in Pakistan. In 2002, the Government of Pakistan decided to build a dam on the Satpara Lake allocating Rs. 600 million ($10 million) to the Satpara Dam project, two years later in 2004. Progress on the project has, however, been slow. Satpara Lake is 6 miles (9.7 km) from Skardu. Satpara Lake is one of the largest fresh water lakes in the country offering trout fishing, and row boating. Satpara Lake is a beautiful lake which is situated near Deosai the second highest plain area in the world

This lake is only 8 KM away from Skardu and it’s hardly takes 20 minutes to reach at the lake. You can try your luck sitting at the bank at any suitable place around the lake or hire a boat and go to the island for best results.
