  1. Very nice video, last year when I went with my family to the lake it just started to snow fall, a driver accompanying us told that a family tried to reach Saif ul Malook to catch when the view during snow fall but very unlucky. But we were presented with a heavenly view with snow falling and covered the entire area and the lake in a few moments. Subhan Allah!!
