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.

There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Satpara Lake, explore the fascinating landscape at Katpana Desert (Cold Desert), see the interesting displays at K2 Museum, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manthokha Waterfall.
