Shangrila Lake Skardu is a lake located near the city of Skardu in Gilgit−Baltistan, Pakistan. Situated at a height of 2,500 metres (8,200 ft), it has had an operational resort on its bank.
Shangrila Lake Skardu was established in 1983 with the opening of the first resort hotel in Skardu.

The Shangrila Lake Skardu(Shangrila Resort Hotel)is known for its restaurant that is built on the fuselage of a nearby crashed aircraft.
Shangrila Lake Skardu was named after Shangri-La, an idyllic Himalayan paradise described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British writer James Hilton. In the novel, Hilton narrates a tale in which the surviving passengers of an early-1920s airplane crash encounter a group of Buddhist monks from a nearby temple, who answer the passengers' call for help and take them to a lamasery filled with a variety of fruits and flowers; the monks claim to be hundreds of years old, but appear youthful in their appearance.The seemingly earthly paradise is referred to as Shangri-La, a Tibetan-language word meaning "heaven on Earth".
