The lake is surrounded by the magnificent glaciers which are also the source of water for the pastures and lake itself. The Ratti Gali Lake trek is around 2 hours after which you reach a peaceful place that most people often refer as the “Jewel of Neelum Valley“. Moreover, it is surrounded by brown mountains that look like enormous walls protecting the valley itself. One added detail is the portrait of the Queen that is painted on a wall. Locals often refer to this as the throne of Ratti Gali where the Queen sits in all authority and glory.

A Presence crouched, enormous and austere,
Before whose feet, the mighty waters mourn.

You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.

The map of the heavens, the time and the space
The distance they travel, the cities of stars,

There is a feeling of tranquillity around me and inside of me.
The presence of God seems to surround me.

Mighty and majestic, standing tall,
Looking over the grassland they continue to rise.

Those who travel to mountain-tops are half in love with themselves
and half in love with oblivion.

i’ll paint the landscape, curves and all
from the valleys to the rolling hills

A landscape between two
Bridges the distance between
Me and you.

Love with its picturesque mountain peaks
one finds oneself opening their hearts to the unending sky of dreams
