Over the past decade, there has been an exponential rise in the tourism industry of Pakistan. Both local and international travelers are now visiting different parts of the country throughout the year. Been identified as one of the best travel destinations by several travel websites and bloggers, Pakistan is now on the bucket list of many world travelers.
From the majestic snow-capped Himalayan peaks to the serene fertile plains in Punjab; from the full-of-life cosmopolitan cities like Karachi and Lahore to the vast empty deserts of Balochistan; Pakistan offers a uniquely diverse landscape and an equally diverse experience for all types of travelers.
The northern highlands have been widely recognized as a dreamland for mountaineers and trekkers for decades but now due to improvements in road and tourism related infrastructure, many leisure travelers also visit the lush green valleys, crystal clear lakes, massive glaciers and high-altitude mountain passes throughout spring and summer. Others are attracted to these areas for outdoor sports like skiing, rafting and rock climbing which are gradually gaining popularity.
Pakistan in not just a heaven for the adventurous, it is equally interesting for those who love to explore history and cultural heritage. Being geographically located in one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited areas, Pakistan has a very rich history dating back thousands of years. The archaeological discoveries of the Indus Valley civilization, ancient stupas and Buddhist rock carvings, temples, mosques and forts dating back centuries; all offer a glimpse into the rich and intriguing history of this region. It is also one of the world’s most culturally diverse countries with around a dozen different ethnic groups each having their own language, cuisine, customs and traditions which offers a unique experience to those interested in experiencing diverse cultures. However, what is common in all Pakistanis is that they are friendly, hospitable and full of life.
