Tormik Valley Roundu Skardu

Tormik is a panoramic valley in the Subdivision Roundu of Skardu district. The valley lies on the Gilgit-Skardu link road near the headquarter of Subdivision Roundu, Dambudas. The valley is famous for its lush green and breathtaking high altitude area know as Broq in the local language, Balti. The Broq has lush green plains, freshwater streams, springs, and forest having a different kind of species of plants. 
In Broq there is a playground designed for playing Polo. In summer people from different areas of Roundu gather at the Broq to play the Polo, which is also known as the regional game of Gilgit-Baltistan territory.
Tormik is the second largest valley in Roundu in term of area and population, Stak Valley being first.
In summer July-Mid of September, one can reach the Stak valley from Tormik via mountain pass by a track over the Kulankae. The track is very easy and simple if the snow has melted down because in winter the pass is covered by many feet of snow.
