Haleji Lake Thatta Sindh, Paksitan

This beautiful lake is situated in the Thatta District, Sindh Province of Pakistan. Being Asia's largest bird sanctuary it is located at a distance of 88 km from the Karachi city.


This lake has a good history background, as this was built during second world war by the combined efforts of British Government and the local army personnel. Before it's expansion it was a small lake, but in accordance with water requirement for the troops during the war, the lake was expanded and a feeder canal was introduced from the Sindh River. As the water requirement for troops was to be fulfilled, this lake was completed within 24 months hard work of the troops. The water requirement of the troops positioned in Karachi was fulfilled by this lake. Since then this lake has become a water supply source to the Karachi city. The is also home to the migratory bird from Siberia and also there is found a different kind of fishes too.
