It is along the Karakoram Road, not too far from the Pakistani border, that is located the peaceful Karakul lake. Overhung by the snow covered peaks of the Pamir Range, this lake rests at the foot of the imposing summit of Mustagh Ata, which dominates the area with its 7.546 meters. Each year Kirghiz families install their yurts over there for the cool summer months.
