Khaplu is a very beautiful and scenic place in Gilgit Baltistan, Northern areas of Pakistan. Khaplu has many picnic spots and tourist points. Khaplu is also rich in cultural places and spots as well. If you are planning a visit this summer in Gilgit Baltistan, you must not miss an adventurous tour to Khaplu district of Gilgit Baltistan. Khaplu is famous for its cultural beauty, natural feel, and diverse tradition.
Gilgit-Baltistan’s Ghanche district stands almost aloof with its beautiful valleys and settlements inhabited by the most hospitable locals and river irrigated lands.
The central location in the district is Khaplu, which is a beautiful landscape with high summits, flowing blue waters, and waterfalls.
The people of this small settlement on the bank of River Shyok, are warm and loving, as they were centuries before, when travelers, wandering through Yarkand and Saltoro, first arrived here.
As soon as one leaves Skardu, a narrow, paved road with poplar trees lined up on both sides provides a soothing shade for the travelers as they make their way through small specks of sunlight filtering through the leaves; casting shadows on the darkened road, leaving an aesthete spellbound.
