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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Skardu: Shigar (Khilingrong Mosque & Amburiq Mosque). Spend the 26th (Sun) exploring nature at Deosai National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Upper Kachura Lake, examine the collection at K2 Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Manthal Buddha Rock, and admire the sheer force of Manthokha Waterfall.
