Little Tibet

The notable peaks that surround Skardu may be rugged, daunting, and otherworldly, but the imposing reputation of its most famous natural attractions belies the more fertile, diverse, and homely aspects of the town. Located in a valley at 2,438 m (7,999 ft) above sea level, the town gives good access to four of the planet's 14 "Eight-Thousanders," with trekking accounting for a large portion of Skardu tourism. Gaining its nickname because of the similarities between the local culture and the Tibetan way of life, Skardu boasts a number of cultural attractions, such as ancient forts and religious sites, as well as abundant orchards and plots growing peaches, apples, and apricots.

Where to stay in Skardu

With the town acting as a base for regional adventurers, you'll find a good set of accommodations in Skardu. The main road in the north end offers a few scattered motels, simple hotels, and guesthouses, while a couple of established hotels sit close to the river that runs through town.
