Start your trip in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) for some of the most beautiful scenery and adventure activities Pakistan has to offer. GB is a popular choice for those seeking varied experiences in a single region. K-2 and Nanga Parbat are two of the most famous peaks in GB, the northernmost administrative territory of Pakistan. In Hunza Valley is the turquoise-hued Attabad Lake, which was created in 2010 by the collapse of a landslide, which is also home to the world’s highest polo ground, Shandur. A 4,114m high wonderland, mostly in the Skardu District, Deosai National Park sits within the Treeless Deosai National Park. Skiers can visit the Naltar Ski Resort, and camping enthusiasts can trek to the picturesque Fairy Meadows.


Multan is a fascinating mix of memories of ancient warfare, trade, dynastic rule, as well as Sufi civilization. Since 3300 BCE, the seventh most populous city of Pakistan has seen countless rulers, beginning with Hindu occupation and going on to witness Greek invasion and eventually hosting a long era of Muslim rule, heavily influenced by Sufi Islam. The city of Multan is now a significant part of south Punjab and devotees from all over the country and abroad visit the innumerable shrines, graves, and mosques there all year round as a preserve of Sufi mysticism.


It is relatively recent that Tharparkar District in Sindh has become a tourist attraction. The fact that the number of tourists is increasing each year is encouraging for the region, which is a patchwork of small towns and villages, some of which are partly developed and others not. During or after the monsoon rains, most tourists flock to the district to experience a brief moment in time during which the desert becomes an oasis. In addition to the beauty of the desert and its soil, the residents are also delighted by an agricultural season in which rainfall agriculture flourishes.

Kalash Valleys

A multi-ethnic country, Pakistan is perhaps its most distinct indigenous group with the Kalasha. Located in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and surrounded by the Hindu Kush mountain range, the Kalash Valleys are a part of Chitral, the largest district in that province. Due to its remoteness, the Kalasha people have been able to preserve their uniqueness over the years. Primarily light-skinned, blue-eyed, the Kalasha are famous for their colourful dress and polytheistic religion. The religion they follow, which is supposedly either a form of animism or a form of ancient Hinduism, is as distinct as that of their Muslim neighbors. Chilam Joshi falls in May, Uchau falls in September, and Chawmos falls around the time of the winter solstice. The best time to visit is during their three annual festivals, Chilam Joshi, Uchau, and Chamois.


The chance to visit Mohenjo-Daro in Sindh, an archaeological site dating back to 2500 BCE, is hard to pass up for history buffs. The Indus Valley Civilisation was contemporaneous with Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. This conclusion was reached through extensive study and excavation of the area. In addition to these features, Mohenjo-Daro had an efficient water management system, as well as the public baths – which is considered advanced urban planning and civil engineering well ahead of its time. In the early 20th century, the city was discovered along with its excavation sites as part of the re-discovery of the lost civilization. After 1966, detailed excavations ceased due to damage caused by the weather, and all in-depth research work was abandoned. The Mohenjo-Daro site was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980 and is accessible by plane, bus, or private transport from Karachi.

Khewra Salt Mine

It may not be on everyone's bucket list, but a trip to the world's second-largest salt mine is definitely a remarkable learning opportunity. There is primarily a salt mining industry at Khewra Salt Mine. The mine is located close to Islamabad, the capital, and is also a major source of salt for this country, with more than 250,000 people traveling up to the mine each year. Upon entering the cave via carts, tourists get to see salt caves made entirely from salt, a number of saltwater pools, and some miniature salt structures of the country's important landmarks. There is a possibility that the salt deposits were discovered by Alexander the Great's troops in 326 BCE.

Makran Coast

In Pakistan, the Makran coast hasn't yet been transformed into a dream vacation destination, but if exploring undiscovered beaches with natural surroundings is your thing, then this is one place you need to visit. There is a pleasant surprise in what would otherwise be an otherwise barren landscape in the Province of Balochistan. It stretches 1,000 kilometers along the Gulf of Oman and is interspersed with pristine beaches accessible via the 650-kilometer Makran Coastal Highway that begins at Karachi in Sindh, passes Ormara, and Pasni, and ends at Gwadar. It is recommended to set forth from Karachi early in the morning so as to make the most of the long driving. Notable beaches in the area include Kund Malir, Astola, Ormara, Sonmiani, Gwadar, and Pasni Beaches.
