  • Visited here in my childhood. Like city of Quetta then, Hanna lake was a wonderful place. Bustling with rush of the tourists & local visitors. It was like a fair. Someone who has seen it recently, told that things are not same.. Now this lake has nearly dried up & number of visitors is much less.
  • A big disappoint overall for a karachiit. Just a long drive and that's it. Not a single drop of water in the "lake" ...the weather was good, the hut was beautiful and very well located. Perhaps it would be more fun if there's water in the lake.
  • Hanna Lake is situated at a distance of about one hour from Quetta city. Not managed well. Adequate water is not available all the times you go. If you plan a BBQ picnic, it would be a fun. However, visit to the lake in dusty days (especially in May) are not recommended. If adequate facilities are provided there and local people are encouraged to arrange seasonal fairs/galas and sell their locally made products, it can promote tourism and contribute to local economy. Great potential is there
  • Nostalgic! My memories of a life time. From childhood to middle age. Place never fails to mesmerize me. Really sad to see it getting dried
  • After 45 years, on 28.11.17 I revisited Hanna Lake, Quetta along with my colleagues from HEC and IM Sciences, Peshawar. It was such a painful site since there was no water in the lake which has dried up due no rains over the years. It surely brought back nostalgic memories since the last time when I was here was in 1972 as a young child along with my parents.
