Pakistan is a natural tourist’s destination, and majestic beauty is not only bound to the locations in the northern areas of the country. But, it is also home to some unexplored gems like the stunning, mystic “Swaik lake” just waiting to be explored. Swaik Lake is also called “Khandowa Lake” “کھنڈوعہ جھیل” around 10 km from the Tehsil Kallar Kahar, Chakwal District and 30 kilometers southwest of Chakwal along the motorway. It is famous for natural scenes, crystal clear water with tiny fishes, cliff diving, swimming, and trekking. Swaik Lake is approached with 45 minutes of hiking after the drive of 10 Km by taking an exit from Kallar Kahar interchange at Lahore-Islamabad Motorway. Swaik Lake is also called “Narumi Dhan” by local peoples.
It is a beautiful place and very similar to Neela Wahan pond. The hike to the Swaik Lake is quite similar to the hike to Neela Wahan although the level of difficulty is a bit higher. In Swaik Lake, you can enjoy with family, friends and also other activities like Cliff diving, Treking all along. The lake area consist of variable size filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake. Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ocean, and therefore are distinct from lagoons, and are also larger and deeper than ponds. The trail that leads to the breath-taking beauty is quite wide and narrows down at some parts, and steeply declines towards the gorge that encapsulates the lake. The lake has become quite a popular place in recent times, as it’s hard to believe that it’s right here in Pakistan! A fresh, clear lake is all you can fantasize about on a beautiful day, the lush green waters just glistening in the broad daylight the cascading waterfall situated at the lake, you might spot tiny little fish scurrying in the water.
