about alpather lake

If racing against the chilly winds on a horseback on the snowy trails of the Himalayan terrain is your idea of fun and adventure, then an excursion to Alpather lake is for you. At the foot of the twin 4511 meter Apharwat peaks, lies this beautiful alpine lake which remains frozen till the month of June. As the lake starts thawing, one can see clumps of floating ice blocks which makes a very pretty picture. There are certain regions around the lake where you might need a special army permit. Please get the details from the tourism office, before venturing out. Surrounded by mountains and the blooming wildflower meadows or snow laden fields (depending on the season), the lake is a nature photographer's delight. Especially so with the adorable little ducks waddling around the lake. The horse aficionados racing past make for a very elemental and contrasting shot, especially when taken against the placid lake. You can reach it by a well-graded track on the back of a pony. With the backdrop of hilly snow-capped terrains, the lake is perfect for a picnic spot as well.
