Deosai National Park, Skardu

National Park Nature / Park
Explore the untouched nature with a hike through Deosai National Park--at 4,114 m (13,497 ft) above sea level, the world's second-highest plain. The snow cover that lasts much of the year makes access rather difficult, but in spring and summer it comes alive with an endless sea of alpine flowers. The area is known for its wide variety of both plant and animal species, from colorful butterflies to marmots and wild horses. Make sure to bring lots of water and take your trek slowly, since the high altitude makes breathing a bit harder. Add Deosai National Park and other attractions to your Skardu trip itinerary using our Skardu vacation builder.

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. While the bulk of accommodations in the area lies in the town itself, some visitors choose to stay at the particularly scenic and upmarket resorts that lie north of the airport and farther up the Shigar River.
