    Default Highest Lake of Pakistan

    I found list of lakes of Pakistan on Wikipedia List of lakes in Pakistan I am confused about two top ranking lakes 1. Ansoo Lake 2. Rush Lake. Wikipedia has confusing description about both of them. In elevation column of Ansoo lake is says its height is 4126 meters whereas in description it says 5027 meters. For Rush lake, in elevation column it says 4694 meters whereas in its description it says it is highest lake of Pakistan. Do anyone has correct ranking of highest lake of Pakistan please.

    Rush Lake is a high altitude lake located near Rush Pari Peak (5,098 m). At over 4,694 meters, Rush is one of the highest alpine lakes in the world. It is located about 15 km north of Miar Peak and Spantik (Golden Peak), which are in the Nagar valley. Rush Lake and Rush Peak can be reached via Nagar and Hopar and via the Hopar Glacier (Bualtar Glacier) and Miar Glacier, which rises from Miar and Phuparash peaks. The trek to Rush Lake provides spectacular views of Spantik, Malubiting, Miar Peak, Phuparash Peak and Ultar Sar.

    The highest lake in Pakistan is the Rush Lake, which is also the 25th highest lake is the world at an altitude of over 4,700 meters.

    The second highest lake in Pakistan is the Karambar Lake, which at an altitude of 4,272 meters, is the 31st highest lake in the world.

    @luckybilal
    You are right, and the height was corrected on the said page from '(elevation 16,490 feet or 5,027 metres)' to '(elevation 4,126 metres)' in the description sometime yesterday by someone. It was probably a copy/paste error.

    By the way, I am just replying after visiting the page and checking the edit history, I had nothing to do with anything.

    yes indeed much info is faulty in the list.chitta khatta lake is at 14000 ft not 1300 feet.

    but non the less it is an established fact that rush lake is the higest known lake of Pakistan so no use arguing about it
