Lakes of Swat Valley

 

Lakes of Swat Valleya

According to some, there are thirty lakes in the Swat Valley and some claim that there are fifty-two lakes in Swat. As far as I know, there are more than 200 small and large lakes in Swat. The following are the lakes that are within human reach. Some lakes are beyond human reach. I did not mention them in this post.

It is noteworthy that most lakes are found in the Bahrain Valley.
