Skardu Fort or Kharpocho (Balti: کھر فچو) means The king of Forts is a fort in Skardu city in Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan administered Kashmir. Australian mountaineer and film maker Greg Child writes that the fort is "perched above the junction of the rivers" and overlooks the Rock of Skardu.
During the First Indo-Pakistani War, Pakistani platoons were deployed inside the fort to protect the local people. The Gilgit Scouts laid siege to the fort to force a garrison stationed there to enter the conflict. On 11 February 1948, Indian forces battled with the Skardu garrison of the fort. After a six hour long battle between the two the attackers retreated. They came again on 14th February directing "harassing fire into the fort".
