Photographer's Note

Shigar Fort Residence is a unique heritage conservation project which offers guests the opportunity to experience the restored original architecture of a 17th century Raja fort palace, while enjoying the amenities and services of a luxury 20-room guest house. This achievement combines the preservation and re-use of a significant historical and architectural site with a commitment to socially responsible tourism and economic development in the Shigar Valley.City Skardu,Pakistan.Shigar Valley is a valley in Baltistan in northern Pakistan that is watered by Shigar River. The valley stretches about 170 km from Skardu to Askole and is the gateway to the high mountains of the Karakoram. Even though the Shigar Valley is a remote and largely inaccessible place, there are several villages in the valley. Askole is the last settlement in Shigar Valley, which is still far from the high mountains.
