Spin Khwar Lake (سپن خور جھیل), also spelled as “Spinkhore” is a beautiful lake hidden in the lap of mountains towards the north of Kundol Lake and east of Utror valley. The name Spin Khwar has a clear significance as a small white stream in the east flows down to the lake from the surrounding mountains and is a major source of water for the lake. The lake is accessible through two tracks, one from Kundal and the other from Ladu valley. The track from Ladu is comparatively easy to walk and less tiring while the track from Kundal is not only difficult but alarmingly dangerous although it is short and links Kundol and Spin Khwar. Its steepness and dangerous bends needs an experienced trekker and unending physical strength.
The grazers in the area have built small huts and a mosque where one can stay but a personal tent is more recommendable as these huts are in a poor condition due to lack of maintenance. Spin Khwar Lake has formidable size and depth surrounded by tall mountains on all sides except the western face from where a stream of water invisible under the rocks and boulders flows down to River Swat. Tall coniferous trees around the lake reinforce the beauty of the surrounding and the lake.
