The journey between two worlds

One of the most popular trips from Skardu is the drive to Deosai plains, often called as Pakistani Tibet. This upland plateau full of rounded ridges and flowering meadows in average heights over four thousand meters above sea level is a contrast to sharp peaks of Karakoram. Even the way through valley of river Hargisa is a wonderful experience with lots of beautiful views.

To the edge of Pakistani Tibet

National park Deosai plains occupy the large upland plateau between the ridge of the Himalayas and Karakoram. If you want to explore this intriguing corner of the country and do not have time for a trek, an interesting option is then a trip by jeep from Skardu through the valley of river Hargisa to a place called Deosai Top. From there, you can make a short hike around the surrounding meadows and rounded hills.
