Fredrik Ericsson arrives in Skardu

Ericsson has arrived at Skardu after traveling from Islamabad. This city is the starting point for travelers going to the Pakistan side of K2.

Because it is the starting point for expeditions there are hotels, motel, and even wifi in the city. There was a polo match going on so he went to watch it.

He also noted that tourism has taken a hit in the city. The Taliban presence has taken a toll of the number of tourists and expeditions.
