On Day 8 of our trip to Pakistan we traveled from Islamabad to Skardu to begin our Himalaya / Karakoram Mountain region, Gilgit-Baltistan, part of this Pakistani food tour. If you haven’t seen the other videos in this series, watch them all here: pa-tv.com/tv/ਵੀਡੀਓ-Xdya8eym9nM.html
We flew from Islamabad to Skardu, in Gilgit-Baltistan. Even the flight was spectacular as we passed by Nanga Parbat enroute to the gorgeous city of Skardu.
Quick snack in Skardu - After landing we proceeded through security and immigration and continued on to Skardu town. We stopped in Skardu town to run a few errands along the way, and we happen to stop just outside a small shop selling chapli kebabs and a few different Pakistani curries. We had to stop for a quick snack. The chapli kebabs were excellent as usual, and the saag with meat curry was spectacular.
Total price - 680 PKR ($5.05)
Serena Shigar Fort (www.serenahotels.com/serenashigarf/en/default.html) - It was about a 30 minute drive from Skardu to Shigar, and it was a spectacular drive through the mountains until we emerged into Shigar, another lush valley. The scenery was other-worldly. We checked into Serena Shigar Fort (thanks to them for sponsoring our stay).
Baltistan Food - The real highlight of the day was having a local Baltistan food dinner where an amazing family prepared 14 different traditional dishes. Many of the dishes included whole grains, fresh goat, and plenty of apricot oil for seasoning and flavor. It was an amazing meal, and fellowship, and just a taste of the Baltistan, Pakistan.

  • My mouth was watering!! 😀

  • If You love Porkistan it means you love terrorist

    • Everyone hold your noses. Smelly Indian troll passing by

    • Abhi gali khani hai ya subah munh doke.

  • Theres no wax paper...he fave it to you in a newspaper? 😲

  • Omg.

  • Why is everything cooked in oil

  • gilgitis are 100% literate

  • Finally some WOMAN in Pakistan!!!

    • If you're in Pakistan you will see women everywhere. Yes i the Peshawer video there were less due to that region being more conservative. Different regions of Pakistan have different cultures, it is not the same in all places. Also women are commonly seen more in normal markets, shopping malls, restaurants etc, not covering up in any way and wearing western clothes etc. They just dont roam around much of the industrial areas/street food places.

    • I think they were beaten up later for coming in front of camera by their masters(Husbands in Islam). They didn't even hide their faces in veil, it is "indecency" as per Islam and punishment to death under Islamic law.

    • Honestly, my husband and both said this exact same thing during this video after watching a couple of the earlier Pakistan vids. Its terribly depressing to still be able to tell where you are in the world by the lack of women in public.


  • Pakistan ❤️

  • How do you stay so elongated eating so much?????

  • Welcome to Pakistan My country is a very Beautiful place LOVE FROM PAKISTAN

  • I really really wanted to do all these food travel..and taste everything..I'm down! But too scared for hepatitis A and E, tho.

  • Thank you for visiting Indian State of Baltistan. Proud of our Hindu-Buddhist land. Beautiful Bharatvarsha.

    • Haha these Indians make me laugh

    • @Siddhesh Patio so you're trying to avenge here or some issue of 400-500 years back rofl? You mite also be writing in colonial language btw. You're looking more of an invader pushing your hate issues here, unfortuately no medication for ppl like you, get well soon

    • +Roy Cagney It is India's part occupied by Islamic state. Once there were temples spreading all over the land, now all destroyed by invaders. India's Ladakh, Kashmir and Tibetan country is similar to this.

    • LOL its neither in india and completely different from that country.

  • Itz amazing

  • Come to Jammu and Kashmir in India, And visit SRINAGAR, Ladhak and Leh!!!

    • +mudasir najar Whole India's Western Part is occupied by Muslims, known as Pakistan. Feel free to leave our land. We are always ready to mass genocide every Muslim. Our lands belong to us. You Moslems belong in our beds getting fucked.

    • The Indian Occupied Kashmir ( IOK ).

  • GILGIT BALTISTAN is in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

  • Love from Florida... Apricot oils should tastes amazing... Wishing it allowed to be sold in our wholefood's stores

  • You have got to tell HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN HEALTHY SKIN & FIT BODY despite not very healthy eating?????????

  • I’m from America and have always wanted to visit Pakistan but people here say it isn’t safe. Is this true? This series shows different parts of Pakistan as being full of warm, inviting people and I figured it’d be best to ask for the experiences of people that have been there.

    • I am living in Pakistan for almost 23 years and never felt unsafe. Maybe because i am a Pakistani? Jk! This video doesn't cover everything so lemme help In Pakistan, you can live the way your pocket allows you to, you can choose between street food or brands. Media portrays Pakistan as so backward like no internet/electricity etc, i don't know a guy below 30 who doesn't use internet on daily basis. Because of social media and internet we have changed but our core is the same. Now imagine a guy with that much interaction with people worldwide, youtube etc, why would you feel unsafe with him? I am an animator and i worked with companies worldwide, being a Pakistani, no threat to anyone at all

    • Pakistan is extremely safe to visit. The media has ,unfortunately, portrayed very negative image about Pakistan but believe me.. visit it and you wont regret. This land is full of natural wonders, hospitable people and enriching experience. You are most welcome to visit us! :)

    • Maybe just like north korea...its a warm n good place to visit

  • 😍😍

  • OMG it's my hometown thanks mark to coverages the beauty of Baltistan

  • ❤️

  • To day snow falling in murree and Northern area of Pakistan up to 10 inches snow come and enjoy weather and hospitality of Pakistan

  • This is my hometown. Love U Mark wiens❤

  • This is my hometown. Love U Mark wiens❤

  • *Mark Wines uploaded a new video I smiled*

  • I never ever had this image of Pakistan. It's been a sour relationship with Pakistan as I am Indian, but you have totally turned around that image. Such a beautiful place it is. Have fun!! 💓

  • Waoo....he is trying to speak hindi...that is shukriya😌😌...so cute fmly ...and thanks to u mark ...i also get around to all places wid these videos...may be to go by me is not possible ..so thnkyu💕

  • This place is just mind blowing beautiful wow subhan Allah.. one day I’ll go there 100% inshaAllah

  • @ 04:12 A live cow walk on street in Pakistan? Strange

    • Because she produces milk so its not a good idea to turn it into kebabs (we pronounce em kabab).

  • India best only

  • Beautiful

  • This is misfortune , That GILGIT -BALTISTAN is under TERRORISTAN , Soon INDIA will take over & will make FUTURE of PUBLIC bright.

    • People are free here and not getting shot by the army like in Indian occupied Kashmir. Make the people of your mainland future bright first, who are sleeping, pissing and shitting on the streets. And where 90% of Indians look malnoirished and short.

    • yeah like Indian held Kashmir where there is curfews and raids and collective punishments...all areas held by Pakistan are left free to run themselves thats why allot of smiley people unlike India.

  • thnx mark wein for visit my hometown skardu

  • koi bataye ga 14 dishes k name kya hai

  • Love from haryana(India)
