Uchali Lake is the most popular tourist attraction in the valley. This lake is formed due to the absence of drainage in the range. Sakaser, the highest mountain in the Salt Range at 1,522 metres (4,993 ft), looms over the lake. Due to its saline water the lake is lifeless, but offers picturesque scenery. The water of Lake Uchali is brackish and saline in nature and taking a bath in such water is not healthy, but the people who have certain skin conditions may recover. Boats are also available for boating. Uchali Lake attracts hundreds of migratory birds each year and is ideal haven for the bird watchers.
Update 9th August, 2023: Naushera to Uchali Lake road is in very bad condition. Uchali Lake full of algae with bad smell and mosquitoes. Visit in winter 2023.
This lake is in IUCN’s red list. Hunting is prohibited near the Uchali Lake. Local people are of the opinion that the beauty of the lake is depreciating due to negligence. The budget is almost non-existent. Tourism can be increased if the ministry of Tourism pays attention the lake.
