The Deosai Plains lie between the Indus River and the southern extension of the Himalayan Range, whose most famous peak is Nanga Parbat (8125m). At an average height of 3800m, the undulating, green, flower-filled meadows are surrounded by snow capped peaks and the drive through these plains is a soul stirring experience. After then, freshwater lakes abound, and as a result, make this seldom-disturbed area a haven for wildlife, including Brown Bear and Markhor. Our jeep ride from Skardu will take us through Sat Para Valley over Ali Malik Pass (4082m) to Kala Pani Stream. From here one can hike over level ground to the next camp spot of Deosai Lake (3865m). One will then drive over Chachor Pass (4267m), to Tarashing, which is the jump-off spot for treks and expeditions to the Rupal face of Nanga Parbat. Explore the area, including a possible hike to Chungpar Glacier. Continue on to Rama Lake and after spending a day hiking in the area, jeep from Rama to Gilgit.
