One fine morning I decided to visit KhanPur dam that is approximately 1 hour away from my place. While driving through the way I really enjoyed amazing natural views. The moment I reached there I could enjoy the striking blue water and high raising mountains touching the sky.
Khanpur dam is 40km away from Islamabad and you pass through the Taxila Cantt before reaching there. It will take you 2 or more hours drive to be there from capital or Rawalpindi. This place attracts many tourists from Pakistan and across the globe.
Things that you can do at Khanpur Dam
Khanpur Dam can be considered as a good picnic point for families as it offers cliff diving, boating, fishing, adventure, water sports, Skiing, angling, Spelunking, Night caving, Rock Climbing, Team Rappelling, and beautiful views. If you are boating lover then it will allow you to get the best view of whole dam.Camel and horse riding is also available at the side area of dam for families and kids.
In start when I used to visit there were not so many food items available at Khanpur Dam but now you can enjoy BarBQ, Fry Fish, Pakoras, Cold Drink, Ice Creams and much more.
Most of the people head towards this place in summer days when lake turns into dark blue. The water is pretty deep so swimming is mostly prohibited to prevent any damage.

A rest house is also available that can be used for night stay but I would recommend this place for the day trip only. There is only one road leading to the dam so careful driving will be required during the night time.
The best thing is to visit Khanpur Dam during the day time, enjoy the pleasant weather, scenery and drive back to home.
