Gilgit Baltistan Beauty of Pakistan (Deosai, Skardu, Rakaposhi)

Gilgit, Rakaposhi (7,788 m, Karakoram, #27 in the world and #12 in Pakistan), Skardu, Satpara Lake, Kachura Lake, Shangrila Lake and Deosai Plains. The journey from Islamabad to Gilgit takes 18-24 hours (depending on the circumstances, and your luck, it's not uncommon for landslides to block the road for hours, although they're cleared as soon as possible). Gilgit and Skardu are two main hubs for all trekking expeditions in Northern Areas. PIA flies regular flights on Gilgit-Islamabad-Gilgit and Skardu-Islamabad-Skardu routes (about 50 minute flights) but these flights are also subject to weather clearance, and in winters flights can be delayed for days.
