Pakistan Holidays,  Pakistan Holiday Packages Overview

Pakistan is a destination with much to offer- ancient bazaars in Quetta, cosmopolitan attractions in Karachi, ancient architecture in Lahore and the majestic Karakoram Mountains. However, with Afghanistan on one side, Iran on the other side and the fault line of Kashmir on yet another side, tourism has always been tough for Pakistan to sell.

Pakistan is one of the very few countries today that boast of having almost every type of geological structure. It has desert, sea, green mountains, dry mountains, waterfalls, forests, rich cultivation land and snow capped mountains. This diversity offers a huge range of outdoor exploration opportunities.

Karachi is the largest city of Pakistan and home to many attractions like the impressive mausoleum of the country's founder made with white marble. Other attractions in the city include Memon Mosque, beaches and excellent museums. Islamabad is home to the majestic Shah Faisal Mosque featuring a desert tent type structure and four large minarets.

Pakistan is home to some of the world's highest mountains including the Nanga Parbat, the world's second-highest peak. It also includes some of the largest glaciers in the world like the Batura Glacier and Baltoro Glacier. The Hind Kush Mountains in Chitral area offer a wild, beautiful beauty with roaring rivers, hot springs and the native Kalash tribe. The Swat Valley also offers beautiful alpine scenery with ruins of Buddhist stupas, statues and monasteries as well as poplar retreats like Mingora and Miandam.

The legendary Khyber Pass separates Pakistan from Afghanistan with an imposing rock wall.
