Cold Desert

Known as the Katpana Desert, Skardu’s cold desert is truly awe-inspiring. At an elevation of 7303 feet, Katpana is among the highest deserts of Skardu. Easily accessible from the Skardu Airport, Katpana stretches from Khaplu Valley to Zanskar. Cold enough to freeze you in the months between December to January with a temperature of -25 °C, this Skardu’s cold desert is nature’s wonder right here in Pakistan. Though completely isolated yet you’ll find a better connection here. And wait, do you know what the best part about Katpana is? Camping! Camping amidst a completely isolated desert under the sky full of stars is a must-do-before-you-die experience.
