In memory of Attabad Disaster

Attabad Lake was formed in a result of massive landsliding that took place on Jan. 4, 2010, in Gilgit-Baltistan. The Hunza river was blocked, gradually taking the shape of a lake, now famous as the Attabad Lake.

Twenty people were died in the incident and 25,000 people of Gojal Valley were stranded. Gradually the lake extended up to 21 km in length and 330 ft in depth. More then six thousand people were displaced and around 170 houses and 120 shops were submerged  in the lake. Many high profiles visited the region including Prime Minister, Army Chief and many parliamentarians.

After four years the affectees are still waiting for the commitments made by the Government. Few people managed to rebuild their homes, but majority are hoping that 2014 may be a year of happiness for them.
