Attabad Lake also known as Gojal lake, is a lake in Gojal Valley, Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan, an administrative region of Pakistan. The lake was formed due to a massive landslide at Attabad Village in Hunza Valley in Gilgit-Baltistan, 9 mi upstream (east) of Karimabad that occurred on 4 January 2010.
In 2010, a landslide blocked the river and created Attabad Lake (also called Gojal Lake), which threatened 15,000 people in the valley below and has effectively blocked 27 km of the Karakoram Highway.

The realignment restored the road link between Pakistan and China and it is expected that significant amount of trade will be conducted between China and Pakistan using it. The KKH is also a part of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor and is expected to significantly increase economic integration between those two nations. The lake flooding has displaced 6,000 people from upstream villages, stranded (from land transportation routes) a further 25,000, and inundated over 12 mi of the Karakoram Highway.
A massive landslide 15 km upstream from Hunza's capital of Karimabad created the potentially unstable Attabad Lake, which reached 22 km in length and over 100 m in depth by the first week of June 2010 when it finally began flowing over the landslide dam.
