One of a series of lakes along the dramatic vistas of the Karakoram Highway route from China into Pakistan, Bulungkol Lake features a sand dune-like texture on the far side of the lake. This lake is likely to undergo heavy change in coming years as there are plans for increasing hydro electric power output from this area in cooperative plans between China and Pakistan.
