About Pakistan

 

Pakistan, the land of the Mughals, is a Muslim republic located in the heart of Asia. It lies on the north-west of the Indian sub-continent, with Iran on the west of it and Afghanistan in the north.

Pakistan, that multi-dimensional country of natural and historical wonders has finally arrived on the world tourist map. A journey through Pakistan is a fascinating encounter with a country that has withstood countless invasions, absorbed the culture and ethos of its conquerors and preserved their essence in monuments and archaeological heritage.

Landscapes that are the dream of poets and nature lovers, exciting mountain trails, hospitable and simple people, exotic cuisine and a culture that goes back 5000 years are just a few of the treasures that unfold once you are in the country. Half a dozen civilizations flourished here and left their signature on the culture, art, architecture and cuisine.

Pakistan is southern Asia’s best kept secret and is almost unknown to western travelers. The modern nation was created in 1947 when Pakistan, together with India, gained independence from British rule. Featuring a mosaic of ancient and modern cities, secluded mountain valleys and mighty peaks, it is a country of extraordinary variety and great ethnic diversity. Within the borders of Pakistan the mighty River Indus flows from the snow clad peaks of the Karakoram through the fertile fields of the Punjab and the deserts of Sind, to the warm waters of the Arabian Sea, a journey of almost 2000km.

Pakistan fostered a five thousand year old civilization, remnants of which can still be seen in the ruins of Mohenjo Daro and Harappa. The land was an important halt on the trade route from Central Asia into India and across to China. Over the Khyber Pass, Kurram Pass, Bolan Pass and the Khunjerab Pass, caravans laden with dried fruits, silk, wool and precious stones labored to their final destinations.

So if you are seeking adventure, want to lose yourself in nature's wonders, looking for some cultural stimulation or just want to intermingle with the incredibly warm and hospitable people of Pakistan, visit Pakistan and take back lingering memories of this country of diverse landscapes and people.

The country comprises of four provinces, Punjab, Sind, Baluchistan and the North West Frontier Province (NWFP). In addition, there are the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the northern part of Jammu & Kashmir. The capital of Pakistan is Islamabad with its twin city Rawalpindi, while its largest city is Karachi in Sind.
