Yurt & Yak is located is Skardu, Baltistan,
anciently known as Little Tibet, an area where you
will encounter the most dramatic contrasts found in
nature. Dominating your stay are the inspirinal
mountains of the Karakoram range, the highest snow
capped peaks in the world, jeting into the clouds at
every bend of your trek or tour. At your feet is the
mighty Indus river, with its underlating gentle and
angry flows. Along the Indus valley, at more than 7000
feet, are villages situated among vast and dunes and
lush green fields. Visiting these villages is like
stopping at an oasis in a desert surrounded by
glaciers, soaring peaks and rushing rivers.
Baltis here are descendents of the Tibetan nomads.
They were shepherds who moved from the high plateau of
Tibet to the lower valleys of Baltistan before the 7th
century. They still speak an archaic Tibetan and
believe in the deity of the mountains known as Sla
Lamos. You will see how Baltis living here are
retained their simple, traditional life growing
apricots, wheat, potatoes and vegetables and grazing
buffalo, sheep and goats in Baltistan's five principal
valleys of Skardu, Rondu, Kharmong, Shigar and Kaplu.
