Time of the year again when the frozen Khalti Lake becomes a playground

Reporting by Abdul Rehman Bukhari

Gilgit, January 9: Children and youth in the Khalti village of Gupis Tehsil, deep in the Ghizer district, are running, dancing and playing on the frozen Khalti Lake. They do not have a playground in their small village, and the winter season provides the perfect opportunity to compensate for the lake of opportunity.

They are now using the thick surface of the frozen lake to keep themselves warm and enjoy the winter season. There, definitely, are many risks attached with the action. But, for the time being, the risks are not stopping the children, youth and even the elders from playing on the frozen surface.

Tourists also come to the lake to enjoy the winter season
