Hanna Lake is within the hills on the brink of where the Urak Valley begins, 17 kilometres (11 mi) east from Quetta city. The reservoir was constructed in 1894 during British Colonial era on the land of local tribesmen, and is one among the most attractions within the city. It forms an excellent historical bridge wall between two mountains, the depths like battlements of a fort, for the storing of water.
Hanna Lake is one among the foremost visited and accessible lakes in Balochistan. there’s a lakeside restaurant with picnic tables shaded by pine trees at the top of the river, where families can enjoy the food and weather. On the eastern side of the lake stands the Hayat Durrani Water Sports Academy (HDWSA), the primary and only rowing, canoeing, kayaking and sailing training and championships organising centre in Balochistan Province, with provision of rough swimming facility.
In 1894, the tiny action dam Surrpull (Red Bridge) was constructed on the most Urak road to regulate flooding, and divert water, coming catastrophically from snow melt and rain the Zarghoon Ghar and Murddar Mountains Koh-i-Murdaar streams, into Hanna Lake through its main canal.
Over a century old in 1908, this lake was cover a neighborhood of 818 acres with a holding capacity of over 220 million gallons of water and a depth of 49 feet (15 m).In 1973  an important flood destroyed the Murdar Mountains recharge linked canal on the thanks to Surrpull, near Spin Kaarrez road, which has not been (Restored) reconstructed till date.
Presently, in May 2016 an important flood filled this small action dam Surrpull with mud and stones. Accordingly, all the streams and flood waters are going waste and there’s no chance to manage water conservancy to Hanna Lake without the restoration, desilting of surrpull and both main canals. On the opposite hand the water level in Hanna Lake is falling critically low, hence endangering the natural ecosystem, the local wild life, the environment of the environment , and native peoples, along side many migrated birds and thousands of fish. the longer term of athletic activities like rowing and canoeing is additionally in peril . it’s possible that the Hanna Lake could be fully dried, like in 1999 to January 2005, and in 2010.
The environmental scientists, Speleologists and therefore the Conservationists are watching the longer term of the lake in its most dangerous condition. the present harmful environmental situation will badly affect the natural eco system, environment, and underground water level of the environment . However, the tiny action dam surpull was locally restored / desilted in February 2019, with the help of Hashim Khan Ghalzai, secretary P&D, and Hayatullah Khan Durrani C.E, HDWSA. Since then the flood rain from the Zarghoon mountains has been continuously coming to Hanna Lake, and therefore the water level has risen by up to 50%.

On 22 July 1986, Haji Khair Muhammad Khan Kakar Son of Sarfaraz Khan Kakar gifted 2 Acre (8093.71 square meter) of land on the North West fringe of Hanna Lake to Hayatullah Khan Durrani known for caving and Mountaineering Adventure sports in Balochistan. Hayatullah Khan Durrani established Hayat Durrani Water Sports Academy (HDWSA) on the eve of 14 August 1986 Pakistan Independence-Day the Balochistan’s first and only Rowing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Sailing, rough swimming and boating academy where all such facilities regarding Rowing, Canoeing, Kayaking, Sailing, rough swimming training, events equipment’s and boating provides voluntary freed from cost to the youth members at Hanna Lake.
1990 Hanna Lake boat disaster
On 6 July 1990, 40 people were killed and eight injured when an overcrowded local tourists boat capsized in Hanna Lake. Most of the victims were on holiday. Another boat was wont to rescue the victims.
This channel nowadays needs repairs and is wasting water and recently the Hanna Lake has been fully dried since August 2016 causing killing of thousands of fish and therefore the way forward for the canoe Kayak and rowing National and International level is popping in to dark now. there’s also a water channel which was constructed at an equivalent time by British to convert the snow and rain water near Spin Kaarez, coming from Murdar Mount, as surplus for filling the water during this lake. The channel was destroyed by an important arrive 1976 and has still not been re-constructed. The loss of the snow and rain water was wasted causing Hanna Lake to completely dry up between 1999 and January 2005. the govt of Balochistan did nothing for the restoration of water level at Hanna lake but the Hanna Lake Development Authority (HLDA) the custodians of Hanna Lake and HDWSA officials had full efforts for the restoration of arrival of water through the excess canal to Hanna Lake.
From years 2000–2010 Hanna Lake dried up and therefore the natives along side many migrated birds were in trouble.
However, in 2011 the lake re-filled and once more gave rise to flora and fauna in its environment. The turquoise waters of the lake provide an upscale contrast to the sandy brown of the hills within the background. One can promenade on the terraces or hire a ship and paddle on the lake and around the island within the middle
Naran may be a medium sized town situated in upper kaghan valley which may be a a part of Khyber Pakhtun khwa province of Pakistan. it’s one among the foremost beautiful a part of northern areas in pakistan which is elevated 2500 meters above water level . Its beauty captures tons of individuals towards itself and thus it’s a famous resort for tourists and trekkers. The weather of Naran is extremely cold. The ice on the moutain tops never melts, even in months of June and Jully there are glaciers and mountains are covered with snow.
The road to naran valley travells alongside with River Kunhar which Starts from the glaciers of Kaghan and flow at heart in mansehra. The local languages of Naran Valley are Hindko and Gojri but every individual overthere can speak and understand urdu. The dress is Shalwar kameez with long bottom shalwars. Most of the people are tall. Average height of males was about 5”8’ or 5”9’.
The Inhabitant of Naran Valley are basically Gujars and that i found them very generous and good natured. They welcome the tourists very nicely and treats them like their own friends.Their main source of income is that the tourists and their occupations include tour guides, resthouse managers, shop keepers, restaurant workers, jeep drivers, a number of them also grow crops and a few of them are shepherds. But their whole fortune is simply gathered up within the summer season as in winters the entire area is roofed up in snow and that they need to move right down to mansehra or another hoter place. For that reason the costs over there are bit higher. for instance the worth of 100 rupee mobile card is about 107 up there. But i feel that’s fair enough as they this source of income only for limited time.
Women are housewifes mostly stays reception . I found just one govt grade school where a number of the local’s children went for studying. Beside that there was no system of education overthere. Mostly teenagers were working as travel guides and shopkeepers alongwith their fathers or uncles etc.
The main items of Naran valley are dry fruits and Handicrafts. one among the handicrafts you ought to buy are the artistically carved Walnuts and another famous thing is that the Namdas, the woolen felt rugs while woolen shawls, embroidered shawls and shirts also are avalibale.These places have cottage industries running and you’ll end up having excellent bargains. handcrafted articles are displaced within the shops at the most market.

Tent motels also are present which rent family size tents to tourists to remain in.
River Kunhar passes through the town. Some hotels are situated at the banks of the river. in the dark you’ll hear the sound of water flowing and colliding with the stones. That sound gives an excellent pleasure. At day time Poeple enjoy fishing in river. Some peple just sit back the river and put their feet under the cool water. you’ll feel dark in Naran valley in afternoon because these high mountains will stops sun light to succeed in within the valley.
Saifulmalook is is situated 8 kilometers north of Naran. It takes 1 hour to succeed in saiful malook from Naran. One can find tons of 4×4 jeeps at the outskirts of town. These jeeps takes the tourists from Naran valley to Saiful Malook. because the road upthere is extremely rough and therefore the re are glaciers all the high so only those jeeps and the local drivers can take you up therePeople hire those jeeps and visit Saiful Malook along side their families. Some people prefer trekking over riding the jeep, specialy the kids which trek up to Saiful Malook. There are restaurants and shops located at Saiful Malook aswell. People enjoy horse riding at there.
Saiful malook may be a lake which is situated within the midle of mountains, which throughout the year are covered with snow. one among the renowned mountains is Malika Parbat which is placed on the left of the jheel.Saifulmalook is known as after a folk tale. it’s the story of the prince of Persia who fell crazy with a fairy princess at the lake. The impact of the lake beauty is of such extent that folks believe that fairies come right down to lake fully moon. the color of water is blue and it’s crystal clear. a private cannot put his feet thereunder for more then 30 seconds.
Ansu is tear shaped high altitude lake situated adjacent to Malika Parbat. It are often reached via 11 km trail starting at Saif-ul-Malook. Lake remains accessible from early May till late December, with deteriorating weather making it difficult at start and end of season.
Lalazar may be a plateau once known for beautiful wild flowers and soothing pine forests. Though recently cultivation of potato and other corps declined the natural beauty, but still enchanting view of Malika Parbnat lush meadows make it a requirement visit. Lalazar are often reached through a muddy jeep track of 1 hour ranging from Battakundi. Some people prefer trekking over riding the jeep. One famous, moderate trek ranging from Lake Saif ul Malook through picturesque Hans Gali ends at Lalazar
One thing that i discourage that place is that our elders tells us that if we go 20 30 years back,this place was in its true natural form and it had been wonderfull. it’s a standard perception that anywhere which human has not discovered yet remains in its natural form. People donot care and do the littering allover the place. Junks of garbages might be found at the corners of the market place. Dust thanks to traffic has caused pollution. At saif ulmalook people throw rappers and leftovers within the lake. There must be some body to require responsibility and these actions must be taken care of.
Tourism in Pakistan is a growing industry. In 2010, Lonely Planet termed Pakistan as being “…tourism’s ‘next big thing’ for more years than we care to remember. [But] world media headlines [always] send things off the rails”. The country is geographically and ethnically diverse, and has a number of historical and cultural heritage sites. The upsurge in tourism in the past few years has been aided by the Government of Pakistan’s recent decision to end mandatory No Objection Certificates for foreign tourists seeking to visit certain parts of the country.
In 2018, the British Backpacker Society ranked Pakistan as the world’s top adventure travel destination, describing the country as “one of the friendliest countries on earth, with mountain scenery that is beyond anyone’s wildest imagination.” Forbes ranked Pakistan as one of the ‘coolest places’ to visit in 2019. The World Economic Forum’s Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report placed Pakistan in the top 25 per cent of global destinations for its World Heritage sites, which range from the mangroves in the Indus delta, to the Indus Valley Civilization sites including Mohenjo-daro and Harappa.
According to the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 released by the World Economic Forum, the direct contribution of travel and tourism to Pakistan’s GDP in 2015 was US$328.3 million, constituting 2.8% of the total GDP. According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, the direct contribution of travel and tourism to Pakistan’s GDP in 2016 was US$7.6 billion (PKR 793.0 billion), constituting 2.7% of the total GDP. By 2025, the government predicts tourism will contribute ₨1 trillion (US$7.1 billion) to the Pakistani economy.
In October 2006, one year after the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, The Guardian released what it described as “the top five tourist sites in Pakistan” to help the country’s tourism industry. The sites included Lahore, the Karakoram Highway, Karimabad and Lake Saiful Muluk. To promote the country’s unique cultural heritage, Pakistan launched the “Visit Pakistan” marketing campaign in 2007. This campaign involved events throughout the year including fairs and religious festivals, regional sporting events, arts and craft shows, folk festivals and openings of historical museums.
In 2013, 565,212 tourists visited Pakistan contributing only $298 million, which has risen to over 1.9 million tourists in 2018. By comparison, Pakistan’s domestic tourism industry is estimated at 50 million tourists who travel in the country on short trips usually between May to August. The largest tourism inflow of tourists are from the United Kingdom, followed by United States, India and China.1 Overview 2 Tourist visas 3 Tourism by province and territory 3.1 Gilgit Baltistan 3.2 Balochistan 3.3 Khyber Pakhtunkhwa 3.4 Punjab 3.5 Sindh 3.6 Azad Jammu and Kashmir 3.7 Islamabad Capital Territory 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites 4.1 Tentative list 4.2 Other landmarks 5 Infrastructure and the economy 5.1 Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation 6 List of tourist regions and sites 6.1 Ski resorts and areas 6.2 Valleys 6.3 Lakes 6.4 Waterfalls 7 Data 7.1 Arrivals by year 7.1.1 1990s 7.1.2 2000s 7.1.3 2010s 8 See also 9 References 10 Further reading 11 External links
Travelling makes relationships last long, as many people believe that it is the truest way to test your relationship with your Best Friend Forever (BFF). Although there’s no test that a BFF would fail yet travel is just simply beautiful when it comes to tag along with a friend. Going with your closest companion is not quite the same as going with a basic associate. The BFF is somebody you know all around, somebody whose history you know about, and somebody who knows you similarly too. Going with your closest companion will be intense on occasion, be that as it may, in light of the fact that you both know each other so well, it is substantially simpler to influence it to work. Here are 3 things that inevitably happen when you travel with your BEE:
Instagramming and more
You recognize what each of you needs in a photograph and so you aren’t hesitant to influence them to retake it until the point when they hit the nail on the head. You all are so close, you can undoubtedly instruct each other to return and retake it on the off chance that you, say, needed your feet in the photograph or if your hair was strange, and it wouldn’t be ungainly in the smallest. You have taken some magnificent photographs of each other and dependably given each other credits. You are fundamentally a little photography group attempting to get ideal travel shots, which you obviously do.
There is no separation anxiety
In the event that one of you goes to the store or washroom or essentially does something that contradicts your choices or preferences, you feel marginally fragmented. It feels like the other portion of you is absent. You need to act more typically on the grounds that you are separated from everyone else and can’t have the ceaseless absurd exchange that you are accustomed to having together consistently. It resembles a little moan of help when you have rejoined once more, and you go straight back to your entertaining conduct immediately.
When going with your closest companion, you feed off each other and push each other. In the event that one of you is a diversion for something, odds are the other will be too with only a smidgen of persuading. This goes for anything from attempting a sketchy nearby sustenance to putting yourself out there to endeavoring to connect with local people. With your closest companion, you feel even better when you behave awkwardly. Your relationship generally gets stronger and better when you go with your closest companion; inevitably there is literally nothing kept down between you. You know everything about each other and are not embarrassed about anything.
