Attabad Lake Hunza is the result of a massive land sliding accident in Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan. In 2010 this accident cut off Hunza from North. this results in destroying 26 homes and killing 20 people. Also obstructing the Hunza river for almost 5 months.
There was a village named, Attaabad before this incident. Almost 40 to 45 houses are there. In 2002 a mountain above this village had some cracks under this mountain. Some foreigners visit this place and warn the people and government also that this can cause a land sliding at any time. Till 2010 nothing happened and not anybody left the house.
In 2010 due to excess rainfall, this mountain began to slide from the bottom. After that, some people left their houses but the majority of people still stay there. A week after that this huge sliding incident occurs and people lost their lives.
As a result of this massive sliding after 6 months, this lake spread up to 21 km and 100 feet in depth. Up to 19 kilometers of Karakoram Highway drowned due to a rise in the water level. Later in June 2010, the outflow started and more villages are affected due to the flood conditions.
