Pakistan offers its visitors a unique excursion through the legacy of a rich history and a natural environment unspoilt by the stress and strain of the space age. Yet, it is serviced by most  modern facilities.

Though still a young country, Pakistan has a strong cultural heritage. Its geographical area comprises some of most ancient civilizations the world has seen. It has been attracting, from time immemorial, traders, travellers, invaders, scholars, saints and pilgrims from all parts of the world.

Tours covering the enchanting Northern Areas of Pakistan are offered from April to October. Some of the most interesting & rewarding tours offered in these areas are on the famous Karakoram Highway: an engineering miracle of modern times!

Following the ancient “Silk Route”, this Highway snakes through three great mountain ranges (the Himalayas, the Karakorams and the Pamirs) and connects Pakistan to China over the border at Khunjerab Pass (4733 meters high): the highest metalled road-crossing in the world.

The best time to visit the culturally and historically rich southern areas of Pakistan is from November till March. Some of the journeys offered during this period include tours visiting the frontier towns of Peshawar & Quetta; the fabulous city of Lahore known for its Mughal architectural wonders; the ancient cities of Multan & Uch with their distinctive 13th Century Muslim architecture; the 5000 years old excavated cities of Harappa & Moenjodaro; the world’s largest necropolis at Makli with over a million graves, tombs and mausoleums beautifully carved out of stone; and many other exciting places.
