Visit Askole

Askole, Askoli, or Askoly (Urdu: اسکولی‎) is a small town located in District Shigar Valley, in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of Pakistan. Askole is located in a remote region of the Karakoram mountains 3040 meters above sea level. It is notable for being the final settlement before one enters the wilderness of the high Karakorams. Askole is the gateway to four of the world's 14 highest peaks known as Eight-thousanders (above 8,000m),[1] and is the launchpad for mountaineering expeditions to K2, Broad Peak and other major mountains.
