Hindukush) including the confluence of Gilgit River into the Indus. Shortly after this point we

before returning to Skardu.

the Cold Desert Shigar. Crossing the River Indus and driving through a sandy land, we reach
in green and fertile Shigar Valley. At Shigar, we will visit the old mosque and Shigar Fort
residence. We return back to Skardu in evening and stay there for night.

journey towards Besham for night stay.
