Terrifying footage shows the moment a hotel in Pakistan was swept away in heavy flooding

This is the moment a hotel was swept away - during heavy flooding in Pakistan.

The Honeymoon Hotel in Kalam, Swat Valley was decimated by floods when the Swat river burst its banks - leaving nothing left.

In the video, the river can be seen flowing aggressively near the base of the hotel before the strong current causes the building to crumble.

The valley has been battered with torrential rain over the past week, and it was on the eighth day of flooding that the hotel was washed away.

Thankfully, the hotel was empty at the time as it had already been evacuated.

An eyewitness said: "We were watching from our holiday home on the other side of the valley when the hotel was decimated.

"The hotel is one of the most popular and expensive in the region, so seeing it destroyed was a surreal moment."

So far the extreme weather is estimated to have left around 1000 people dead and many more homeless.

The video was filmed on August 27.
