Shangrila resort, skardu (an international award winning resort) has always been a nice place to stay whether one plans to roam around or just stays within the resort. Lawns are beautifully maintained besides lower kachura lake having beautiful sight of surrounding peaks. Jeeps can also be rented through the hotel reception and local drivers are also present within the premises.... More

Went in 1999. The flight to Skardu was scarey flying between the 3 mountain ranges. The pilot made an announcement that if there were any foreign visitors who would like to take a view from the cockpit to come up. Those were the days!!! The whole area is unbelievably beautiful. Shangri-la itself was in poor state of repair, food not... More

I stayed at Shangrila Skardu for 3 nights with family, in the Swiss Cottage. Yes, the rooms were shabby, and probably not worth the price, but they were clean. Yes, hot water was available only at set hours, but how many baths do you want to take in a day? And yes, our room did not have a fan so... More

Rooms were last done in the 1960s I suspect, and same with bathrooms. Water is brown coming out of the taps. No heating. Hot water only first thing in the morning for 1 shower and evening at 7pm for one shower. Often no electricity for hours on end and they wont switch on the generator as it is too costly!... More

I went to this place in 1991, it was one of the most amazing places I had visited in the northern areas of Pakistan. I convinced everyone to go there rather than any other place, but I had a big surprise waiting for me when I visited in the first week of July 2013. Payment is required in advance if... More

Wow, nature has been so kind on this area in so many ways. I would not confine myself to hotel only but Satpara lake, trekking trails, blue air and WIDE valley to allow airplane to circle and provide view of this heavens on earth is definately worth a visit. Locals and tourists from abroad are well provided in the hotel.... More

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful place in Pakistan, or even in the world. The best gift that God can give to a place. a blue watered heart shaped lake, covered by snow covered mountains, and a lot of greenery. what else can u ask? and yes, a small zoo and trout farm are other attractions. But, and this is... More
