Skardu Valley, The Charismatic Beauty.


Skardu is an enthralling beautiful town in Gilgit Baltistan, a self governing territory in Pakistan. It is one of the most enchanting places in South Asia.It is about 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level. The valley spreads along the bank of River Indus that flows between the Karakoram and Himaliyan range. The valley is also significant for the meeting point of The three mighty mountain chains, the Himaliya, the Karakoram and the Hindukush.skrdu


Weather is usually pleasantly moderate during summer season (April to October) with maximum temperature of 27 degrees centigrade. The rainfall is low because the high mountains does not allow the summer monsoon to reach the valley. Summer is the best time to visit Skardu. In winter(November to March),the weather can be severely rough and cold, dropping the temperature to minus 10 degrees centigrade.skardu

  1. Good day!
    I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I’m getting tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be
    great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. First off I want to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Many thanks!
