Baghsar Lake

Baghsar  is a lake situated at 975 m above sea-degree in the Samahni Valley of Bhimber District in Pakistan’s Azad Kashmir. The lake is roughly half a kilometre long and overlooks the Bandala Valley. The lake is a famous traveller destination.

Many nearby and migratory birds, specially geese and ducks, inhabit the lake. The lake is habitat to water lilies, and the encompassing hills are blanketed via cheerh, or pine timber and lily flowers.

Moghul Fort overlooks the lake from the top of a hill. This 4 story structure of granite has played crucial roles in history for the duration of the times of Ahmed Shah Abdali, Ranjit Singh and Gulab Singh. It is said that the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, on his way back from the Kashmir Valley, fell sick and in the end died in this citadel.
