    you have given two pictures whereas the FIRST picture is NOT of this place as the lake is at the height of 10,500 feet, which is above the tree-line and in this picture whole forest is being shown and in actual one cant find so many trees there. I think it has been added by mistake . please check it again

    Allaho Akbar. God is great and all the more beautiful, worthy of worship by all for all the times. This beautiful lake Saiful Mallok reminds us of His uncountable blessings on we, the wretched Pakistanis, who have made every thing upside down under the immoral/wrong ways of thinking,speaking and acting, too,in the life of pakistani mullah, who made its rulers like bhutto and gen. zia to make such immoral laws in the constitution and law book, which punishes Ahmadis of
    three years behind the bar for his ‘crime’ of reciting the Holy Kalema-e-Tiyyaba. Afsoos sad Afsoos, Innalillah.Anyhow,back to the picture of the Day, if the first picture is from the beautiful scenes of USA or Canada or it resembles to what is found in Pakistan, let us pray that all the pakistanis also become like this beautiful picture and become as peaceful and peace-loving and as calm, quiet handsome in their character and way of life, as these scenes and signs of God Almighty are, a society,where all love each other and no one hate anyone on the basis of religious differences. Ameen.
