Lake Manchar is the largest freshwater lake in Pakistan. It is also one of Asia’s largest lakes sharing the space with lake Baikal and lake Wular. It is located at a distance 18 km from Sehwan Sharif on the west side of the river Indus, in district Jamshoro, where the Lake gets most of its water from.
Before the creation of Jamshoro District, it was in Dadu District. Jamshoro district was split from Dadu District in December 2004. Manchar is a beautiful shallow lake located in district Jamshoro, Sindh. The lake collects water from numerous small streams in the Kirthar Mountains and empties into the Indus River.
Manchar Lake has a vast expanse amounting to over 250 square kilometres in breadth that can bloat up to 500 square kilometres during the monsoon seasons. It is approximately 2.5 to 4 meters deep. In the past, a large and diverse breed of fish could be found beneath its veneer. Seasonally, Siberian migratory birds would flock to its shores.
