Country Pakistan - The Crowning Glory of South Asia

Pakistan, located in South Asia along the Arabian Sea is the gateway to the South and Central Asia and the Middle East. Diverse and exciting, its geography is as different as its people. From the snow capped mountains and the mighty peaks in the K2 range to the rugged plains to the fertile farm lands and the picturesque Swat valley, Pakistan is well beyond the superlatives. Some of the world’s highest peaks which are over 18,000 – to 24000 feet above the sea level are in Pakistan, which makes it a haven for adventure sports as well.

Accommodation Options
