An extremely enchanting yet mostly unexplored Lulusar Lake has situated 350km from Mansehra, mostly inhabited by the Hindko-speaking Hazara community. Mansehra, part of KP, is named after the Sikh general as a celebrated ‘sehra’ adorning Man Singh Mirpuri. Lulusar Lake is just 48 kilometers from Naaran Valley on Naran Babusar Road, one of the highest roads connecting Babusar Pass with Gilgit. ALulusar is a group of mountains perched up at the height of 11,200 feet.
Lulusar Lake Mansehra held up at the height of 10,000 feet above sea level constitutes the primary headwaters of Kunhar River that flows down the Kaghan Valley and crisscrosses through Naran, Balakot finally falls into River Jhelum. Its novel location has ensured that it will never remain dry as melting snows continuously fill it up. Lulusar is much larger than most of the lakes in the valley and it mirrors its surrounding high peaks.
Since the lake is located in a national park it contains a wide variety of natural wildlife. It is home to rarely found species such as black bear, snow leopard, Himalayan snowcock lynx, brown bear, and Himalayan Ibex. It also is inhabited by hawks, Griffen Vultures of Himalaya, and the Himalayan Monal. Migratory birds also visit this unique locale seasonally such as common teal, mallard, and Pintail.
Flora around the lake is plentiful particularly lush green shrubbery which sprouts every year when the snow melts and covers the entire valley. Shrubs include Grecian Juniper or Juniper excels, Jongi or Betula utilize, French mark or Tamarix gallica, and Sumbal or Barberis acantha. The lake surroundings also contain herbs, trees, and perennials of Himalayan Conifer forests. It is full of medicinal plants including Aspagol or Plantago, Ban kakri or Podophyllum hexandrum, Thandi booty or Tussilago farfara, and Chikee or Primula macrophylla. The Weekender
