Whats major difference between Castle & fort ?


#6

A fort is a structure build to be defend against enemy and is usually occupied by army.

A castle is also a secure structure but used as a residential purpose by kings or other noble personalities.


#7

In that case Lal Qila is not a castle. I dunt think we do have any castles in Indo-pak, or do we?

Satpara Lake - Skardu - Northern Area - Pakistan

Satpara Lake is an important lake in Skardu Valley which supplies water for the town of Skardu, which is located at 2,636 meters (8,650 ft). It is one of the most picturesque lakes in Pakistan.

In 2002, the Government of Pakistan decided to build a dam on the Satpara Lake. The Government allocated Rs. 600 million ($10 million) for Satpara Dam project in 2004's financial year. The progress on the project, however, has been slow.

The elevation of Satpara lake is 8650 feet above sea level. The lake is spread over an area of 2.5 km². A story is attached with this lake by local people that there is gold mine in the bottom of this lake, that is why its water seems shining in the day time.

Swinje Valley, Pakistan

Surrounded by huge mountains of Pamirs (called roof of the world), just near Karomber Pass lies this extremely beautiful valley of Pakistan. This place is uniwue for having natural onion grass and heavy grass carpets. In his travelogue, Mustansar Hussain Tarar calls this valley to be the elder sisiter of Deosai with nevere ending treeless meadows. This valley is like a gift of

Allah for those who have crossed the uncertain Chitti Boui Glacier. Dont get disappointed on the very first sight. Its not the valley to be fallen in love at first sight... but the beauty graph goes exponentially up and reaches its extreme where this valley ends at Karomber Pass near Karomber lake. Another good thing about this place is its still unexplored and safe from human destructions. A must do trek for any mountains lover.
