Skardu to Islamabad 29-31 July

I welcome rest day in Skardu and an opportunity to pack all of the gear to return to Australia. Flights out of Skardu were difficult to obtain due to a 600 passenger back-log following a week of bad weather. The only alternative was a horrid two-day drive down the Karakoram Highway as we has to be in Islamabad by 31st of July to catch our flight out on the 1st of August.
