Shigar Fort, located on the route to the world’s second highest mountain K-2.

It is also known as Fong-Khar, which in the local language means the “Palace on the Rock”.

The complex at Shigar comprises the 400-year-old Fort / Palace and two more recent buildings, the "Old House" and the "Garden House".

The former Palace of the Raja of Shigar has been transformed into a 20 room heritage guesthouse, with the grand audience hall serving as a museum of Balti culture and featuring select examples of fine wood-carvings, as well as other heritage objects.
