    Couldn't take much pics of the lake as it was raining and the cloud/rain was following us... and wanted to reach somewhere where we could get a shelter from rain... plus the time for Jumma prayer was near... So, had to rush for that too... but nevertheless it was a great site to watch...

    One thing that disappointed me was that the road build there with very third class material and according to my estimate will not last for more than an year or so... it was such a poor quality material that when i parked my bike on side stand on the road, my bike fell down because the stand went inside the road... just like if a bike is parked in mud...

    The first thing we did after reaching Skardu was to search for a mosque and then offer Jumma prayer there... After that we started searching a decent hotel from where we could get something to eat other than palak and daal maash...

    For that we decided to go to Dewan-e-Khas hotel in Skardu... they had a pretty decent taste and service... atlast a decent taste food after so many days...
