Mahodand Lake is a lake located in the upper Usho Valley at a distance of about 40 km from Kalam, Swat District and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of northwestern Pakistan. The lake is accessible by a four-wheel drive vehicle, and is often utilized for fishing and boating.
During the winter, the Mahodand lake freezes and is covered by heavy snow. In the summers, the basin of the lake is surrounded by a sheet of alpine flowers like geum, blue poppy, potentilla and gentian. Apart from it, the lake is encircled by diverse pinus species which serves as abode for wild birds. Similarly, the lake contains abounding trout fishes, which furnish ideal opportunity for angling, but catching is allowed only to the licensed anglers.
The Mahodand Lake lies at the foothills of Hindu kush mountains at an elevation of (9,603 ft), surrounded by the meadows, mountains and dense forests. Similarly, the banks of Mahodand Lake are covered by pines and pastures that serve as a camping site during the summer.
The Mahodand Lake is fed by melting glaciers and springs of the Hindu Kush Mountain and gives rise to Ushu Khwar, the major left tributary of the Swat River.
