The Deosai Plains

Set 13,000 feet above sea level, covered with deep snow and ice for more than half the year, the desolate Deosai Plains, atop the pass, stretch for more than 19 kilometers.The Deosai Plain, a grassy plateau dotted with rolling hills at an impressive height of 13000 feet. The landscape in the area is nearly all alpine, with small lakes dotting the valleys and huge glaciers working teir way down into the woods, The high pastures in the region are colonized by shepherds and their flocks which graze around the giant mass of Nanga Parbat. The Deosai Plains can be reached via Skardu or Astore valley.
