SHANGRILA – FAIRYLAND IN RAIN

shangrela 4This summer I have got a chance one more time to visit world’s most beautiful place Skardu. Skardu is located in Gilgit/ Baltistan -Pakistan. Raining and cold wind mesmerize us. I am sharing a poem which i have taken from Google, which actually portraying my feelings about this place.

You can visit my last year’s link about SKARDU here:

HEAVEN ON EARTH-SKARDU

Come and see that fairyland
A beautiful country of

Alice in the wonderland

Where people on the Indus soil

In the Cradle-of-Civilisation

Nestled in its delta, toil

And where the high mountains

Are like a fairyland,

A beautiful country

Of Alice

In the wonderland….

Where treasures of antique abound …

Where mystics, saints, poets the ordinary minds confound

Minds that simply go around …

but to people with the spirit,

The soul

To them offer they everything

To their goal.

The land of the Vedas and puranas

Where every one got Nirvanas

And where the high mountains

Are like a fairyland,
of Alice

In the wonderland

Where songs make

The ecstasy – resound …
where Sufis dance to make

The joys abound

And where the high mountains

Are like a fairyland,
of Alice in the wonderland

Come and see that country

A beautiful country

Called the fairyland

of Alice in the wonderland

Where textiles bedazzle and sway …

Where the friendliest people

So near

But so away …
Come and see that country

With the high mountains

Like a fairyland,
for Alice in the wonderland

Where feasts give you treat

Like emperors invite …
and offer you seat

Near to the heart

So come and see Pakistan,
A beautiful country.

Come and see Pakistan,

Come and see that country

With the high mountains

Like a fairyland,
for Alice in the wonderland

A beautiful COUNTRY.

  1. Hello Ainy,
    this is a lovely Post on such a beautiful Resort.
    Your photos are so clear and show the whole beauty of this Shangri-La
    You are very blessed to visit it twice, I wish I could visit it too, even
    though it must be very far from any city!
    Lovely flowers and so peaceful!

    Thankyou for sharing again
