Travelling towards Askole on Jeep is very interesting. It is more then 8 hours ( 87 kilometer ) ride from Skardu the capital city of Baltistan. Askole is the last vehicle-accessible mountain village on the Karakoram.
This is the Pakistan’s highest 3050-M and remote village gateway to highest mountains and longest glaciers of the world. This village is very famous among mountaineers and trekkers.
