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.
Step out of the city life by going to Deosai National Park and Katpana Desert (Cold Desert). Manthal Buddha Rock and Amburiq Mosque will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: 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.
