Bandi Amir was a village of mud buildings that seemed to exist almost solely for tourists, apart from a few nomads in the area. Nonetheless, with its deep lapis lakes set against the desert mountains, it is one of the true natural beauty spots of the world. Several of its lakes were formed by natural dams. The lakes teemed with abundant fish. I took several hikes, building up strength for the final push to Pakistan and India.
