Satpara Lake (سدپارہ جھیل) (also spelled as Sadpara) is a natural lake near Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, which supplies water to Skardu Valley. It is fed by the Satpara Stream. Satpara Lake is situated at an elevation of 2,636 meters (8,650 ft) above sea level and is spread over an area of 2.5 km². The completion of Satpara Dam downstream of the lake has enlarged the size of Satpara Lake. The melting ice of the Deosai plains are main source of water for the lake. The lake is centered with an area of 2.5 km with airy-tale picturesque island. Satpara Dam is a medium-size multi-purpose concrete-faced earth-filled dam located downstream from Satpara Lake.
The dam has enlarged the size of Satpara Lake, generates 17.36 MW of hydroelectricity, supplies power to approximately 30,000 households in the Skardu Valley, irrigates 15,536 acres (62.87 km2) of land and supplies 3.1 million gallons per day of drinking water to Skardu city. Annual agricultural output in the Skardu Valley is expected to increase more than four-fold, generating about $6 million in additional annual economic benefits to local communities.
