Pakistan

The modern state of Pakistan, formed in 1947 after the partition of British India, is little visited compared to its Indian Motherland, with the bitter strife between the predominantly Hindu India and the Muslim Pakistan still in evident in disputes over Kashmir. Martial law as well as tribal warfare characterises much of Pakistan’s interior – but there are many places safe to visit where you can discover some of the most breathtaking sights in all of the Asian world and experience genuine Coca Cola free independent travel.

With the Karakoram and Great Himalaya amongst Pakistan’s mighty mountain ranges, Pakistan is the undiscovered Asian gem of serious mountaineering. Trek the stunning modern built Karakoram Highway all the way to China or scale K2, the 2nd largest mountain in the world.

From the mysterious Khyber Pass to the extraordinary bazaars in Peshawar and Lahore; from rich Buddhist history and ancient Mesopotamian civilization of Moenjodaro through to the modern day Al Faisal mosque in Islamabad, the largest Mosque in the world; Pakistan is a true mix of ancient and modern.

You’re unlikely to find resort style attractions, but what Pakistan lacks in luxury it more than makes up for in the warm character of the people. Discover amazing festivals of the Kalash tribes or experience the nation’s obsession with the national sports of cricket and polo, practiced on ponies in dangerously high altitude mountain plateaux.
