Female European traveler admires beauty of Gilgit-Baltistan
A European traveler recently travelled to Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan’s Attabad Lake and admired the beauty of the region.
“A young female tourist, Eva zu Beck, all the way from #Europe visited the beautiful landscape of ‘Gilgit-Baltistan’ and she admired the breath-taking beauty of the region,” read a tweet posted by official Twitter handle of Government of Pakistan.
Hailing from Poland, Eva Zu Beck can be seen roving about Attabad Lake in Gilgit-Baltistan as she showcases the richness of the area explaining the formation of the large body of water.
“On the fourth of January 2010 a massive landslide came down from one of these mountains basically taking off half the face of the mountain. It blocked off the river access and created a natural dam filling up the valley that was once here with glacial water,” stated Eva.
She went on explaining how the disaster had become a cause of major obstructions for the locals, blocking not only road access but buried an entire village underneath the bed of water.
Commenting on the optimism and inventiveness of the inhabitants of the area, Eva states: “Now the locals are very resourceful, what they did was they brought boats into this new lake and began transporting people, animals and vehicles by boat.”
