“The view from the Hon Pass was indeed the greatest natural sight that either of us has ever seen, and we would recommend it to anyone with a keen interest in mountaineering.”
The land has the gracious sight of the Himalaya and Hindukush mountain ranges. There are numerous mountains and peaks. The famous ones are K2, the 2nd largest peak in the world, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum, Broad Peak, Baltoro Muztagh, Distaghil Sar, Kunyang Chhish, Masherbrum, Batura, Kanjut Sar, Rakaposhi, Salt, and many other. These enchanting mountains greatly fascinate the hikers in the world and contribute in making this country the best one.
Natural scenic beauty is what Pakistan has in abundance. It has the rich valleys covered with mountains and the green meadows in the surrounding. Crystal blue water between the mountains within the green valleys presents breath taking views. The unique species here enchant the visitors and romantically grab the souls. Mother nature makes Pakistan the best country for traveling.
The most stunning beauties are Sawat, Naran and Kaghan, Neelum, Chitral, Hunza and many other more. As Samuel says on his travel about Hunza Valley:
“Head north to the astonishing peaks of the Karakoram along the unforgettable Karakoram Highway. It is beautiful, exciting and culturally interesting, and travellers are rewarded at the journey’s end-point with perhaps the most beautiful natural sight on earth, the Hunza Valley.”

As the country embraces many different casts and religions holding different cultures and languages, it presents a perfect example of the multiculturalism. People not only accommodate with each other, but they also make special bonds like marriages. People are secular in nature as they not only respect each others’ religious ideology but also take part in the religious ceremonies.

Hospitality is in the roots of this land. The people here in Pakistan are the most hospitable and they welcome thire guests overwhelmingly. The foreigners are treated well enough that the general perception against Pakistan got entirely changed.
As per Samuel
“Pakistan is one of the friendliest countries on earth. So, prepare to be invited into people’s homes, take more selfies than you can count, and have every preconception that you ever held about this area of the world changed forever,”
Pakistan is also famous to hold ancient heritage which is one of the major attractions here for tourism. The most known are Moenjodaro and Makli, Takht-i-Bahi ,Sahr-i-Bahlol, Rohtas Fort, Taxila and Harappa. These ancient objects show the living standards of the people who were once natives here and were highly developed.
More than 200 years back, one of the biggest empires of the world “Mughal empire” was ruling over this land and their heritage still mesmerizes us taking us back to the same old days where one can visualize the Mughlia lifestyle. Apart from the Mughal heritage, the remains of British colonies are still found in Lahore and Sindh.
