Day Five: The Karakorum Highway from Chilas to Skardu

Today, we woke up at 5:00AM and once again got our things ready for yet another full day of driving. We had a very nice breakfast and then departed at about 7:00 AM. The road became rougher as I knew from previous experience that it would, and the time crawled by. We stopped for a very brief lunch and continued till we arrived at the Concordia Hotel in Skardu. We tipped the driver, put our bags in our room, took showers and had dinner. The group decided to go to the internet “café”, so we crammed seven people into a VERY small taxi and made the short trip. After about an hour, we decided to get back to the hotel so we walked (as we had had quite enough driving for the time being) back to the hotel in almost pitch dark.
