Is Pakistan Worth Visiting?

IS PAKISTAN Worth Visiting?

Pakistan wasn’t on travelers’ bucket lists. Understandably so, because its international reputation has been fragile due to a once-dubious security situation, its tourism industry only now developing after years of turmoil. And gradually earning a name in the global tourism industry.

For 2020, Forbes listed in top ten tourist destinations where as Condé Nast Traveller went ahead to rank Pakistan on first number as a tourist destination.

Traveling to Pakistan can be uncertain,it can be frustrating just like to any other country that is not well explored.

But if you ask me if it is worth visiting, I’d say Yes.
A thousand times, YES

Traveling in Pakistan is a truly unique experience. It is the ultimate backpacking destination and if you love some real adventures- it is the place to be!

For starters, it is beautiful beyond words. A complete nature’s delight and a cradle of heaven for peace seekers. A place with the best terrains and a variety of colours and climates ;all within a few perimeters.

Which is why many foreign travellers choose to visit either the Northern parts or Southern regions of Pakistan despite of all the skeptical concerns.And it is also why locals in the cities choose to promote adn portry in the right light. One such amazing travel blogger is Huma (@thenorthdrive) who believes in exploring Pakistan in all it’s glory.

Second, it is land of diverse cultures, rich history and cross religions living in harmony. The people here at hospitable and most of a foreigner’s trip can be spent couch surfing and sometimes eating free of cost.

“The Pakistani people are, without a doubt, the most hospitable, kind and welcoming folk that I have ever encountered.
From the bustling streets of Lahore to the quaint mountain towns of Hunza, every time a local person spotted me I would, without fail, be rewarded with a huge grin and often an invitation to dinner. I lost count of just how many cups of free chai I drank but it was a lot…”

This is a country with more than its fair share of truly wondrous sites and tourism in Pakistan is bound to take off eventually! Surreal landscapes, glaciers, and all that wondrous exploration: The multi-day trek to K2, the 2nd highest mountain in the world, is one of the most amazing experiences you can ever have But unlike much of Pakistan which, with a bit of grit, can be explored alone, you MUST be with a registered guide and tour company to head to K2. Why? Because it’s located in the Central Karakoram National Park, an area that’s restricted for foreigners.

To travel in Pakistan is to step back into the pages of history.

Marco Polo was one of the first European explorers to tackle The Silk Road, an ancient trade route that spanned the Orient, linking the treasuries of the Roman Empire to the Imperial Dynasties of China.
Pakistan, as many are unaware of, has been part of the British Raj for along time.But you ca clearly see signs of British education, English speaking skills and a few old monuments built during this time.

Pakistan is rich in history and culture And last but most importantly. Traveling in Pakistan is CHEAP. There always a motel and a travel and tour agency that fits your budget, there is always someone hosting you and there always room to share. Just like its people, Pakistan is accommodating And that I guess, makes any country worth visiting!Pakistan, as many are unaware of, has been part of the British Raj for along time.But you ca clearly see signs of British education, English speaking skills and a few old monuments built during this time.
