The Museum is actually located on the grounds of PTDC Motel in Skardu city. I've been to the motel several times. It is a recommended place for all visitors looking for affordable rooms, good quality food, ambiance and a glimpse of culture and history.

It has a wonderful view of the Indus river and is ideal for an evening tea on the green terraces under apricot and cherry trees. There is an indoor dining area as well with glass walls giving a fabulous view of the surroundings.

The hotel is also a meeting point for mountaineers and displays the history of various mountain expeditions.

Introduction of the Choghori K2
Aug. 2016 • Friends
K2 mueseum sponsered by Italian government and established on 50th anniversary of 1st successful ascent of K2 by Italian climbers. Located at Ptdc K2 Motel Skardu. The whole motel itself is a history of climbing, trekking of the great mountain ranges of Baltistan. If not staying here then spend an evening after the mueseum tour and have a cup of tea with view of great Indus.

A must do, particularly if you are staying at the K2 motel. The whole thing takes under an hour, even if you read "everything", like I do! : ) Also some great photos from the early days on the mountains. Really quite impressive.
