Good to hear that you want to visit Pakistan, it’s not too often that we have visitors from abroad especially from western countries. Reason being that mostly in west, because of so-called media, Pakistan is synonym to “hard-core Islamists, country of subjugated women” and what not.
Anyways Pakistan is nothing like that it is a beautiful country with beautiful and hospitable people. These are 5 places to visit in Pakistan if you are coming from abroad such as Canada, UAE, America, England, Australia or from any part of the world.
There is a saying in Urdu in Pakistan which roughly translates as “if you haven’t been to Lahore you haven’t lived.” It is famous for many things and great food is one of them. Breakfast here is one thing that people travel from all over Pakistan to eat. Tourists’ spots include Shahi Qila and Baadshahi Mosque to name a few.
The Karakorum Highway:
Regarded as the 8th wonder in the world, this highway is truly an amazing work of engineering. It goes through beautiful mountains of Karakorum right towards China. It is located at a height of 5000 meters from sea level and is the highest road in the world. One of the most beautiful sceneries if you ask me.
Lake Saiful Malook:
Surrounded all over by Mountains Lake Saiful Malook is a peace of heaven God left for us on Earth. Stay the night at any hotel in Naran and start hike towards this lake in the morning it is surely one of the most amazing experiences.
Two things you need to know about this; World’s tastiest potatoes are cultivated here and it is home to many colourful lakes in the world. I will just say this; it is not possible to describe beauty of this place in words.
One unique thing you would find about this place is that this place has a range of beautiful flowers of all hues and colours and not a single tree is found over an area of 3000 sq. km. It remains covered with snow for 8 months of the year.
