EXPLORING SKARDU, GILGIT BALTISTAN.
I decided to arrive Skardu by air and here is the link to that scenic flight CLICK HERE Though it is easily accessible by road also. But to avoid long hours by road I opt for the PIA air safari scenic flight. In Fact I have already travelled Karakoram highways during my earlier tour to Hunza. You can also read my road journey on KKH here. My Epic Road Journey on KKH. Skardu is located in the extreme north of Pakistan connecting the western Himalaya range of mountains. It's famous as the land of mountains, lakes and waterfalls. It's like a paradise for mountaineers. Multiple options for mountaineers and hiking opportunities. k2, the second highest peak in the world is located here. Apart from that Masherbrum, Nanga parbat located in same region. During my stay, I visited some of the most beautiful lakes, valleys, waterfalls of Skardu. Details are given below.
