Shigar Fort Baltistan - THE WOODEN HOTEL Jan 11, 2012
Shigar Fort is a 17th Century, some 400 years old Palace of a Baltistani King situated at over 3000meters, enroute to legendary K2 mountain.

I had the pleasure of visiting this very beautiful & majestic hotel which is definitely second to none. Palace/ Fort has now been taken up by a five star hotel chain & is transformed into a hotel, one of its kind, while preserving all the beauty of original palace from 17th century.

Getting there in summers is easy, taking a plane ride from Islamabad to Skardu airport, and informing the hotel in advance, who will take care of yr pickup & some 2hrs drive to the fort, which takes you through a stunningly beautiful cold desert.

There is a sweet fresh water stream in front of the hotel. Whole structure is based on wood & clay.

Definitely worth a visit.
