Karakul LakeAdjacent to the Karakorum Highway, 192km from Kashgar, 3600 m above sea level lies the Karakul Lake, a stunning combination of turquoise water and grandiose mountains that turn even the most novice photographers into instant professionals. At an altitude of 3,600m, it is the highest lake of the Pamir Plateau, near the junction of the Pamir Mountains, Tianshan and Kunlunshan mountain ranges.

The Karakul Lake is popular among travelers for its fantastic scenery and the clarity of its reflection in the water, whose color ranges from a dark green to azure and light blue. The well-preserved environment here will give people a breath-taking feel. The crystal water reflecting the surrounding mountains, peaks and blue sky and clouds is stunningly beautiful.

Karakul Lake lies in the shadows of the grand Mustagh Ata, which reaches an elevation of 7,509 meters and is covered in show all year round, as well as the Gonger Peak and the Gongerjiubie Peaks. On a calm day the lake becomes a giant mirror reflecting with clarity every detail of the gorgeous mountain beauty, but even the lake itself is worth admiring. Every hour of the sun's presence in the sky allows the lake the opportunity to show off a different color of the spectrum, from turquoise or light blue, to even light pink or yellow. Even the outline of the clouds drifting over the mountains is painted in pristine colors on the surface of the lake.
