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.
Manthal Buddha Rock and Khilingrong Mosque will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Katpana Desert (Cold Desert) and Sheosar Lake. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Skardu: Amburiq Mosque (in Shigar) and Rainbow Lake (in Domel). Spend the 18th (Tue) exploring nature at Deosai National Park. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Upper Kachura Lake, take in the dramatic scenery at Manthokha Waterfall, don't miss a visit to Kharphocho Fort, and see the interesting displays at K2 Museum.
