SHARE

Let’s talk about Skardu. Northern areas of Pakistan have always been praised and appreciated for the beauty of the mountains and valleys that are considered ‘heaven on earth’. But there is far more to the northern area of Pakistan then that.

At 14000 feet above sea level, you will find the cold desert of Skardu, the highest cold desert in the world. Beautiful white sands that meet the snowy mountains and touch the blue sky above. An area so diverse, you will find color where none should be and cool fresh rivers flowing from the mountain ranges that surround it. So diverse that it’s utterly mind boggling, mesmerizing and stunning all at once.

Here’s a look at the majestic cold desert of Skardu.
