Shoesar lake is at an alititude of 16000 ft above the sea level and is situated in the Deosai Plattue(northern Pakistan). Deep down in the wilderness a days jeep deive from the city of skardu, it is one of the most prettiest lakes on the face of the earth. It is the highest point on the Deosai Plains and the best place for camping.
The Deosai Plateau has lots of natural wonderful flowers. All of different colours and kinds. You will find them mostly in spring, especially near lakes. They die in the winter and regrow from their seeds in the summers.
Crossing Suspension Bridges can be the most exciting part of the journey. There are several of these on the Deosai Plateau and the jeep can make short work of them. Dont miss them.
Deosai can be reached only by Jeep or by feet. Jeeps can easily be hired from Skardu bazaar. They cost you around Rs 4000/- for a one day round trip ( its just for reaching the deosai top and then coming back ). If you want to go deep inside deosai ( deosai is 3000sq km area ), then the charges depend on the particular desitnation you want to see in deosai.
Anyway let me tell you watever you are charged, the place is worth it. You wont regret.
If you get to deosai by foot, there are no jeeps available in deosai. Getting a jeep from Deosai depends on your luck.
So make it sure in Skardu, how you would like to travel to and around deosai.
Beware! Deosai is home to the world's most dangerous, most ruthless, most horrific MOSQUITOES in the world. Yea, this area is famous for them. So take some good spray and try buying Mosquito Repellant liquids like Mospel because these little buggers are as bad as they can get. They can make a white shirt look black!
Favorite thing: The sky at Deosai is special. If its blue, its a very beautiful mountain blue. If its cloudy, its still very beautiful. It has is own special beauty. However. even though its a lot cloudy at Deosai, I dont think it rains that often there.
