Deosai National Park, Skardu

4.8
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Skardu
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. Put Deosai National Park and other Skardu attractions into our Skardu travel route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • This second highest plateau of the world is really a 'land of the giants'. A full day exertion into the nature with breathtaking views through an off-road adventure.  more »
  • Heaven on Earth! Lush green. Snow capped peaks. Freezing cold. You might see a brown bear if you’re lucky. A MUST VISIT!  more »
  • It was an unforgettable Summer at Deosai plains. I heard it was only open in summer until early Autumn (likely only 4-5 months) and will be closed. It is a plain 5000m above sea level. I was so happy ...  more »

  • This 13000ft high lush green plateau is carpeted with wild flowers during July a September. Stepped Terrain is very beautifuly decorated, by nature, with lakes and snow covered peaks. Climate is very pleasant during summer months.
  • Extreme beauty. Very nice place to visit. You can reach here at your own car but I recommend to hire a Jeep. Please take medicines because here you may experience headache and breathing difficulty. Ideal for camping but weather is freezing specially at night.

  • We love this national park. The grassland turns yellow brown in autumn and the park is all empty during low season which brought us the spirit of freedom while driving through the park. We visited Sheosar lake which is a so beautiful lake in the middle of grassland. We wish we can come back here in summer with all the wild flowers blooming everywhere! See you again, Deosai!
  • A must visit place. Very beautiful. You can go from skardu in a jeep.
