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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Manthal Buddha Rock and Khilingrong Mosque. Discover out-of-the-way places like Manthokha Waterfall and K2 Museum. Step out of Skardu with an excursion to Amburiq Mosque in Shigar--about 54 minutes away. Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Deosai National Park. There's much more to do: admire nature's extreme beauty at Katpana Desert (Cold Desert), make a trip to Kharphocho Fort, and explore the activities along Satpara Lake.
