Feary Middows (3200m) without circumstances its a paradise with pine wood round from where you can see one of the biggest peaks in the world – Nanga Parbat (Himalayas mountain range, 8125m).
Everybody who ever heard about this place has imagination about this place like a lake with reflection of Huge Snow Peak. We will destroy the myth about it: local people created the lake artificial (by filling the water from the nearby spring). So the name of “lake” came automatically – Reflection Lake. Anyway view from its side is awesome!
Feary Middows is a gorgeous forest with the smell of sweet pine and frozen fresh air coming from Snow Peak. Europe people when arrived here first gave the idea for local people to build wooden guest houses mountain type – Swiss style chalets with wooden heater. So even in winter guests can easy stay at such kind of resort. Electricity is 24 hour non-stop (probably you will not find such a good facilities even in Gilgit!!!) and even signals of Zong mobile data network operator .
So if you are experienced trekker and would like to have a coupe of day for the rest, if you don’t like trekking at all, anyway you should have extra 3 days in your Pakistani schedule to see this beauty!
