The Sarfaranga Desert Rally has promoted the soft image of the country.In the northern areas of Pakistan at an altitude of around 1000 feet, the sand dunes located in Sarfaranga village are a wonderful creation of Allah, at Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan.
These sandbanks are also known as the cold desert with strong winds that shift the dunes, forming different shapes each time. This cold dessert is extended from Khaplu Valley to Nubra Ladakh and Shigar Skardu valley to Zanskar in India.
This desert holds a unique place in the hearts of travelers due to its high altitude and cold region. The shooting stars and the moving galaxy spread in the sky in cold nights of Sarfaranga. The Indus River beside crystal clear water reflects the image of colorful trees, enhancing the beauty of Sarfaranga village.
