Lake Saiful Muluk (Urdu: سیف الملوک) is a lake located at the northern end of the Kaghan Valley (34°52′37.34″N 73°41′37.71″E / 34.8770389°N 73.6938083°E / 34.8770389; 73.6938083) near Naran. It is in the north east of Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. At an altitude of 3,224 m (10,578 feet) above sea level it is amongst one of the highest lakes in Pakistan.
The lake is accessible by a 14 km road from Naran (which is accessible by a road from Mansehra via Balakot and Kaghan) during the summer months. On foot, the trek from Naran to the lake takes about 4-6 hours. The water is clear with a slight green tone. The clarity of the water comes from the multiple glaciers all around the high basin which feed the lake.
The weather here is moderate during day time while the temperature drops to minus degrees at night.

Your choice of vertical format works great here. The reflection adds nice depth and balance for the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness and DOF.

Olá Atif, I choose the 4-6h trek. Wonderful mountain landscape, marvellous reflection. Very well captured in this vertical framing. This perfectly crystal clear foreground is fantastic.

a beautiful view shot of splendid lake and mountains,
green and white mountains and their reflections on the rippled water make wonderful perspective in this view,
clear blue sky and transparent water look so cool, it is very fine atmosphere,
thank you for your excellent shot,
