Skardu

Skardu is a city in Gilgit-Baltistan area of Pakistan, and fills in as the capital of Skardu District. Skardu is situated in the 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide by 40 kilometers (25 miles) in length Skardu Valley, at the intersection of the Indus and Shigar Rivers at a height of almost 2,500 meters (8,202 feet). The city is a significant door to the eight-thousanders of the close by Karakoram Mountain go. The town is situated on the Indus waterway, which isolates the Karakoram Range from the Himalayas.

The name “Skardu” is accepted to be gotten from the Balti word signifying “a marsh between two high places.” The two referenced “high places” are Shigar city, and the high-height Satpara Lake.

The principal notice of Skardu dates to the primary portion of the sixteenth century. Mirza Haidar (1499–1551) portrayed Askardu in the sixteenth century content Tarikh-I-Rashidi Baltistan as one of the areas of the territory. The main notice of Skardu in European writing was made by Frenchman François Bernier (1625–1688), who notices the city by the name of Eskerdou. After his notice, Skardu was rapidly drawn into Asian maps delivered in Europe, and was first referenced as Eskerdow the guide “Indiae orientalis nec non insularum adiacentium nova descriptio” by Dutch etcher Nicolaes Visscher II, distributed between 1680–1700.
